Through Baykeeper’s Estuary-wide programs we seek to end pollution, improve public access, conserve and restore public lands, restore aquatic habitats, encourage appropriate and discourage inappropriate development, carry out public education, and work with federal and state regulators and citizen groups as partners in planning for a sustainable future for the Hudson-Raritan Estuary watershed.
Baykeeper focuses on our three core programs: the Policy and Advocacy Program, which seeks to shape and enforce water quality, land use and coastal policies that impact the estuary, the Conservation Program which preserves remaining habitat and open space throughout the estuary through the preservation and restoration of endangered sites and the Oyster Restoration Program, which creates new oyster beds in order to both monitor and improve the health of the estuary’s eco-system.
