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 holds exciting events all year round! Please check our Events calendar regularly to stay in the loop. Hope to see you there!

It seems that everywhere we go, our streets, wetlands, parks, and beaches are littered with single-use plastic items like straws, Styrofoam, bottles and utensils. If you’re like us at Baykeeper and feel guilty or overwhelmed for not picking up every piece of trash in your line of sight, we challenge you to find a bag and fill a bag! More often than not, you will find an empty plastic bag amidst litter. Share your photos of full bags with us on Instagram @nynjbaykeeper by tagging #findabagfillabag. A little bit goes a long way!
