This year me and a team will relay swim 6.5 miles from the Golden Gate Bridge to McCovey Cove for the start of the Giant's game. Our vision is that the Bay is where communities and wildlife are able to thrive, and enjoy healthy beaches and clean water! It also means that our waterfronts are ready for the future—with shorelines and wetlands that can withstand sea level rise, and where our communities make the most of scarce water resources. Baykeeper monitors water quality, uses science, and on-the-water patrols in order to identify the greatest threats to the health of the Bay’s ecosystem. Then they strategically use advocacy, public education, and legal action to secure smart solutions that stop pollution and restore water quality. Since 1989, Baykeeper has: compelled cleanup of hundreds of refineries, chemical companies, landfills, and city streets; kept hundreds of millions of gallons of untreated sewage out of local neighborhoods; won federal court victories to regulate pesticides, invasive species, and vessel pollution; been recognized as a national leader in oil spill prevention and response; conducted regular patrols to monitor water quality; and responded to hundreds of citizen pollution reports through the pollution hotline.
