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.

Help Remap the Northeast and Support Hurricane Sandy Recovery
When Hurricane Sandy hit in October 2012, it caused dramatic changes to the coastlines of New York and New Jersey. In July 2013 Navionics launched the Sandy Project in order to generate updated charts that reflect the significant coastline and bathymetric changes. Not only does remapping the coast help Navionics achieve their mission to offer the most accurate charting available, it allows individual boaters to help ensure the safety of on-water activities by making certain that major changes are reported and charted. This helps organizations like the NY/NJ Baykeeper and Raritan Riverkeeper conduct their boat patrols to spot pollution. For every boater who helps Navionics remap the coast, Navionics will make a donation to NY/NJ Baykeeper – a nonprofit organization focused on protecting, preserving and restoring the Hudson-Raritan Estuary. How to help: Hummingbird and Garmin users can record sonar logs, than upload them to the Navionics chart installer. Updated charts, reflecting everyone’s contributions to SonarCharts™ and Community Edits, can be downloaded after about one week. Visit: SonarCharts™ | Navionics for instructions and more details.
The NY & NJ coastline has changed significantly. Please help your fellow boaters remap the coast.
