Baykeeper defends San Francisco Bay from the biggest threats and holds polluters accountable. Using a unique combination of science, policy, and law, we’ve achieved over 250 legal victories to reduce pollution from industrial facilities, stopped sewage spills to the Bay by 75% from 10 cities, passed new state laws to keep oil and coal pollution out of the Bay, and strengthened local laws regulating toxic pollutants like mercury, dioxins, and selenium to protect the Bay’s wildlife and residents. We’re now approaching our 30th year of Bay protection.
