Dr. Jaime A. Collazo

Is it possible to use land for agriculture and simultaneously provide habitat for wildlife? Join us to learn about the unique case study of Puerto Rico’s historic changes in forest cover and the role that coffee cultivation played in preventing avian extinctions. But can coffee cultivation continue to play a role in conservation, and how?
