Efforts to control noise pollution have focused primarily on urban areas, and there has been little research on noise in parks and nature reserves and very few regulations as result. Sponsored by the Junta de Calidad Ambiental, the goal of this project was to develop an understanding of how non-natural sounds affect visitor experiences in four parks in Puerto Rico. The project team developed sound profiles for each park and conducted visitor surveys to determine visitor perceptions of and attitudes towards noise. The team found that traffic, airplanes, and people were common sources of annoying noise, but each park has its own particular 'noise problem.' Consequently, the team proposed a set of general and park-specific recommendations to help address the problems. -
