San Francisco Bay and its watershed are under constant stress from industrial pollution, raw sewage spills, trash, oil tankers, hazardous chemicals, and more. Ongoing mining, dredging, and habitat destruction also harm the Bay.
Government agencies don’t fully enforce the laws and policies that are supposed to keep the Bay and its watershed safe from harm. And polluters constantly lobby for weaker regulations.
San Francisco Bay’s critical wetlands, its bottom floor, and the fresh water from rivers that flow into the Bay are all being mismanaged and exploited — leaving the Bay in a weak, unstable condition.
Baykeeper’s field investigators and scientists patrol the Bay to catch polluters and uncover threats. Our lawyers and policy advocates hold polluters accountable and require government agencies to strengthen and enforce the laws.
Baykeeper is stopping the worst polluters and taking on the biggest threats to the Bay and its watershed.
Join us. Together we can hold polluters accountable and defend the Bay.
