In response to the Bay’s deadly algae outbreak last summer, NOAA just approved a new regionwide effort to research harmful algae blooms in the Bay. And Baykeeper's field team will be leading the community science monitoring program!
The Bay suffered two consecutive years of harmful algae blooms. This project will help scientists understand the origins of—and solutions to—this alarming trend.
Many thanks to the San Francisco Estuary Institute, U.S. Geological Survey, and other collaborators for creating this important new partnership project!
