Somos de Aquí: The Enduring Wildlife of Puerto Rico

Exhibition Website

May 4 2019 - Aug 18 2019

This exhibition pays tribute to four of Puerto Rico’s enchanting species of endangered wildlife that have survived in the face of an economic collapse followed by Hurricane Maria’s 2017 devastation. 

The compelling photographs, videos, and interviews in this exhibit tell the story of the Puerto Rican Parrot, coqui frog, hawksbill sea turtle, and the island’s only native mammal – the bat. 

The backdrop for this exploration is El Yunque National Forest, the only tropical rainforest in the United States National Forest System, and Mona Island, an ecological reserve known as the Galapagos of the Caribbean.
