Staying Nimble: 2020 in Review

Sejal Choksi-Chugh
From the December 2020 edition of Bay Crossings

“Nimble” is a word I use with​ ​pride to describe Baykeeper’s ability to rise to a challenge.

And boy, did the world test us in 2020! In response to the global pandemic, our dedicated staff smoothly pivoted to remote work, and we expanded our pollution patrols to include drones. As wildfires ravaged the state, we prioritized initiatives to make the Bay more resilient and took on the polluting industries that cause climate change. And in response to the national reckoning over race, we doubled down on our environmental justice work to protect all Bay Area communities.

At the same time, we continued to stay laser-focused on our primary mission of holding polluters accountable and stopping the biggest threats to the Bay.

For more than thirty years, Baykeeper has been a fierce champion for San Francisco Bay, wildlife, and local communities. And in 2020, Baykeeper became stronger than ever.

More than anything, the challenges of this year have increased our deep appreciation for your support. Thank you!

Be well and stay nimble,
