Today’s Image of the Day from the USGS features a striking view of the west coast of Puerto Rico in the town of Rincón.

The image gives us a glimpse of the Tres Palmas Marine Reserve, which is home to rich biodiversity including parrotfish and hawksbill turtles.

The photograph was captured on July 19, 2019 by oceanographer Shawn Harrison of the Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center (PCMSC).
