The State Government is preparing a project to restore the wetlands of Puerto Morelos. The first stage is an in-depth study of the ecosystem and its health, identifying problem areas. This analysis is likely to take between five to seven months and once complete will dictate the measures to be taken.

This period will be followed by the rescue period of five to seven years. Actions will include reforestation with mangrove plants and other wetland plants. Water channels may also be opened in areas of the wetland that are now completely dry or where there is little or no circulation. In other areas where roads are planned, alternative routes may have to be proposed.
