San Francisco Bay’s wetlands, the Bay's bottom floor, and the fresh water from rivers that flow into the Bay work together to create a vital ecosystem that both people and wildlife depend on. It will be even more important to keep the Bay healthy when sea levels rise, and there is extreme flooding and drought caused by climate change. But the things that keep the Bay healthy are being mismanaged and exploited.
Baykeeper uses science, advocacy, and the law to protect the Bay's shoreline and vibrant wetlands, ensure that there is a healthy level of sand and sediment on the Bay floor, and make sure that enough fresh water flows into the Bay to keep it from getting too salty to support life. By defending the Bay's natural ecological balance, Baykeeper makes sure that residents of the Bay Area — both human and animal — will thrive for generations to come.
