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’s conservation program preserves remaining wildlife habitat in the NY-NJ Harbor Estuary through land acquisition, innovation planning, and ecological restoration. Since 1989, NY/NJ Baykeeper and its partners have preserved and restored more than three thousand acres of critical habitat in the midst of one of the most densely-populated and industrialized ports in the region.
The NY-NJ Harbor Estuary Region is home to 20 million people and hundreds of bird, fish and wildlife species. Thus, preserving the natural habitat and open space is essential in this heavily developed area. Open space is essential to our future because it protects water supplies, improves water quality, protects flood prone areas and creates and improves parks for generations to use for years to come.
Partners include the Port Authority of NY/NJ, the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission, the NJDEP’s Green Acres Program, Office of Natural Resource Restoration, and Parks and Forestry Programs, and Conservation Resources, Inc.
