NY/NJ Baykeeper fights for access to fishable, swimmable, clean waterways across the NY-NJ Harbor Estuary.
NY/NJ Baykeeper continues to be at the forefront of many environmental advocacy and legal campaigns.
The NY-NJ Harbor Estuary, also known as the Hudson-Raritan Estuary, is a system of waterways and habitats that form one of the most intricate natural harbors in the world. Since 1989, NY/NJ Baykeeper has worked to protect, preserve and restore the environment of the most urban estuary on Earth.

NY/NJ Baykeeper has used the power of legal actions and campaigns to protect, preserve and restore waterways, wetlands and habitats throughout the NY-NJ Harbor Estuary. Baykeeper’s legal advocacy will continue to concentrate on “heritage pollutants” such as contaminated sediments and will work to make sure facilities and municipalities are in compliance with the newest phase of stormwater regulations. NY/NJ Baykeeper will continue to investigate facilities that cause “imminent and substantial danger to human health and the environment” and promote our belief that polluters– not the public– pay to restore the resource to its prior condition before it was polluted.
