In the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, which devastated Puerto Rico and other parts of the Caribbean, the AAPA provides these posts as a means of connecting interested Biological Anthropologists with ways in which they can support scientists in the area and support the rebuilding of heavily impacted long term study sites and the local personnel that keep them running.

Hurricane Maria made a direct hit on the island of Dominica. The island residents have been important contributors to a 30-year, long term study of stress and health. Dr. Mark Flinn has started a gofundme campaign to support rebuilding Petite Soufriere, Dominica. https://www.gofundme.com/help-petite-soufriere-dominica#.
