NY/NJ Baykeeper's mission is to protect, preserve and restore the ecological integrity and productivity of the NY-NJ Harbor Estuary - one of the most urban estuaries on the planet.
Since 1989, NY/NJ Baykeeper has served as a citizen advocate for the bays, streams, and shores of the NY-NJ Harbor Estuary. NY/NJ Baykeeper stops polluters, champions public access, influences land use decisions and restores habitat, benefiting the natural and human communities of our watershed.
NY/NJ Baykeeper is the citizen guardian of the Hudson-Raritan Estuary. Since 1989, we've worked to protect, preserve, and restore the environment of the most urban estuary on Earth - benefiting its natural and human communities.
Through our 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 NY/NJ state regulators and citizen groups as partners in planning for a sustainable future for the Hudson-Raritan Estuary watershed.
Founded with the help of Hudson Riverkeeper and the American Littoral Society in 1989, Baykeeper is a wholly independent nonprofit with its own 501c3. Baykeeper has a full and part time staff, its own Board of Directors and many dedicated volunteers. Baykeeper is the only bi-state full time advocate for the Hudson-Raritan Estuary and Harbor.
