Trust for Public Land
South Miami, Florida

Ms. Majoros, a Project Manager with the Trust for Public Land, led an initiative to acquire 270 acres of coastal habitat – including 212 acres of intertidal and emergent wetlands – that benefits 14 federally-listed threatened and endangered species in Puerto Rico. The site includes one of the most important nesting grounds for the federally endangered leatherback sea turtle.

Because of her efforts, this land has been permanently protected by the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico as the San Miguel Natural Reserve.

She is currently negotiating with landowners to protect an additional 140 acres in the Northeast Ecological Corridor.
