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.

WE are the Storm We've Been Waiting For
Between the historic droughts, floods, and storms, one thing is increasingly clear: the time for talk is over. This September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a landmark Climate Summit at the United Nations -- and we'll be meeting them in the streets to demand real action.
Join us at Columbus Circle, NYC on Sunday, September 21st, 11:30am for the People's Climate March - the largest mobilization demanding climate action in history.

We will keep you informed of logistics and make sure you're there to march with us and fellow Waterkeepers!
It's not going to be easy, but with our future on the line the choice is clear: we need to mobilize like never before and hold our leaders accountable for their inaction. The People's Climate March is when we're drawing a line in the sand and standing up for our families, our friends, our communities, and our children's future. Watch NY/NJ Baykeeper Executive Director, Debbie Mans explain why this Climate March is so important to her.
We don't have time for empty words or promises. Join us on September 21st to tell our leaders the time for talk is over.
There has never been a better time to join the movement to stop runaway climate change and create a more robust and just economy. RSVP to the march and let your friends and family know why they should be there too. Click here for more route details and transportation.
