Help Preserve Puerto Rico’s Natural Treasures

El Pastillo Conservation Trust preserves over 80 acres of unique ecosystem found at El Pastillo Beach and its surrounding cliffs. This priceless natural resource encompasses crags, bluffs, dunes, wetlands and caves found along the northwestern coast of Puerto Rico. Here a distinctive array of flora and fauna live and nest, including threatened and endangered plants and animals like the magical Harlequin Butterfly, Atlantea tulita, and the majestic Leatherback Turtle, Dermochelys coriacea. Volunteers and visitors alike have the opportunity to participate in and support the Trust’s four initiatives: protection, conservation, restoration and education.

The Trust is dedicated to safeguarding this pristine stretch of land and its amazing inhabitants for posterity. We invite you to get involved!
