Welcome to Humboldt Baykeeper
Act Now to Protect the Coast!

 

A behind-the-scenes effort to fire Coastal Commission Executive Director Charles Lester is being led by Governor Brown appointees, including our Coastal Commissioner, Martha McClure, who in 2015, had the worst voting record on the Commission, with only 32% of votes cast to protect coastal resources.

 

In its 40th year, the California Coastal Act is a pillar of environmental protection recognized around the world. In Dr. Lester's five years as Executive Director, he as a long list of accomplishments, including new authority from the state legislature to fine landowners who block coastal access. The attempt to fire Executive Director Lester is an effort by pro-development interests to undermine the effectiveness of the California Coastal Act and the independence of the Commission staff.

Ocean Night, Thursday, Feb. 4: Chasing Ice & Cradle of Storms
This month's Ocean night is a celebration of winter. Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to gather undeniable evidence of our changing planet by deploying time-lapse cameras across the Arctic to capture a multi-year record of changing glaciers. Beautiful and inspiring yet frightening - but don't despair! Here some personal actions you can take to make a difference.

 

Cradle of Storms follows three surfers through the Aleutian Arc of Alaska. Follow the crew as they track pulses of swell to never-before surfed pointbreaks. Set against stunning volcanic backdrops and sweeping arctic landscapes, this is surf exploration at its finest.

Report A Spill Here!

For spills in Humboldt Bay:

  • Cailfornia Office of Emergency Services (800) 852-7550

For spills in or near storm drains (which drain to creeks and Humboldt Bay)

  • Eureka Public Works Dept. (707) 441-4192
  • Arcata Environmental Services Dept. (707) 822-8184
  • Humboldt County Public Works Dept. (707) 445-7491

Storm drains are separate from sewer systems, so stormwater flows into our coastal waterways UNTREATED. Humboldt Baykeeper is working hard to protect our environment but we can't do it alone. We need your help!
