Advocacy & Legal Campaigns

The NY-NJ Harbor Estuary has a long history of being damaged by industrial uses: pollution from sewage, run-off and other sources; inappropriate development; and other abuses of the waterways and surrounding land.

Since 1989, Baykeeper has been fighting to restore the health of the Estuary through advocacy campaigns and legal actions. Baykeeper’s work helps people see the Estuary through an environmentally-conscious point of view; appreciating its beauty and potential and understanding their rights to enjoy both.
