Scientists race to document Puerto Rico’s coastal heritage

Puerto Rican students of the Center for Advanced Studies for Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, and their professor Isabel Rivera-Collazo, kneeling, study the impact that Hurricane Maria had on coastal archaeological resources and ecology in Manati, Puerto Rico. The group of U.S.-based scientists are rushing to document indigenous sites along Puerto Rico’s coastline that date back a couple thousand years before rising sea levels linked to climate change destroy a large chunk of the island’s history they say is still being discovered.
