Life After Maria: Puerto Rico, Climate Change and Migration

More than 135-thousand people have left Puerto Rico, since Hurricane Maria devastated the island.  According to some projections, Puerto Rico will lose up to 14 percent of its population by the end of 2019.  Our latest magazine takes an in-depth look at the impact of Maria on Puerto Rico —  it’s aftermath, the resilience of its people, the efforts to rebuild as well as build new lives abroad.
