Baykeeper’s Sejal Choksi-Chugh Receives Environmental Leadership Award

Sejal Choksi-Chugh, Baykeeper’s Program Director and Interim Executive Director, was honored on April 9 with the UC Berkeley Law Ecology Law Quarterly’s annual Environmental Leadership Award.

The Ecology Law Quarterly is produced by students at Berkeley Law at the University of California, Berkeley, and is one of the nation’s most respected and widely read environmental law journals. Sejal was honored for career-long dedication to protecting San Francisco Bay from pollution. She started at Baykeeper in 2002 as a legal fellow, and has since led the charge to reduce agricultural pollution, industrial runoff, sewage overflows, mercury contamination, and oil spills in the Bay.

Bay Nature recently profiled Sejal’s work as Program Director for Baykeeper. You can read the full profile here.

Past recipients of the Environmental Leadership Award include David Brower, the Sierra Club’s first executive director; East Bay Congressional Representative George Miller; and renowned Yosemite National Park Ranger Shelton Johnson.

Congratulations, Sejal!
