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.

Allison joined the NY/NJ Baykeeper team in 2012. Previously, she was a volunteer and field technician since 2008. Allison oversees the EcoVolunteer program, data collection and monitoring of the oyster reef at Soundview Park, NY, and the microplastic program. The EcoVolunteer program allows adult volunteers to get out on the water and actively participate in oyster restoration and research. Volunteers don waders and get up close and personal with all the invertebrate species on an oyster reef, while assisting with the collection of scientific data and maintenance of an oyster reef. Allison completed her PhD (CUNY Graduate School) in oyster ecotoxicology in 2014, and is passionate about restoration and research in the Hudson-Raritan Estuary. Allison is an assistant professor at New Jersey City University and frequently brings her students out to the field to perform research on various aspects of urban marine ecology.
