Buzzards Bay and its surrounding watershed are ecological treasures providing natural resources vital to the people and wildlife that live within. The region's unique characteristics make this a special place for all to enjoy. Buzzards Bay is an estuary (a place where salt and fresh water mix) nestled in Southeastern Massachusetts. Among east coast estuaries it is one of the most pristine bays, with clear, cool water, vibrant marine life, and coastal communities with a rich maritime history and a deep connection to the Bay.

Mark Rasmussen has led the Buzzards Bay Coalition as President and Chief Executive Officer since 1998 and manages all facets of the organization's work. He has a professional background in regional ecosystem management and holds a Master in Public Administration from Harvard University and a bachelor's degree from Boston College.
