Welcome to Humboldt Baykeeper
Year-End Fundraising Goal Surpassed!

Thanks to many individual supporters and the $10,000 challenge grant from Coast Seafoods, Humboldt Baykeeper surpassed our year-end fundraising goal with a total of $30,000 of donations to support our water quality program in the coming year. Special thanks to Coast Seafoods for doubling our impact! As the largest oyster grower in Humboldt Bay, Coast Seafoods knows the importance of clean water - not just for oysters, but for the health of our entire community.  

 

 

 

2014 marked ten years of Humboldt Baykeeper's work to advocate for clean water, watchdog development, raise awareness of sea level rise, and get people out on the water and coastal trails to appreciate Humboldt Bay. Thanks to your support, we will be able to continue this work in 2015, as well as apply a laser-focus to identifying and stopping the E. coli pollution to our streams, the Bay, local beaches, and waterways.

It would jeopardize drinking water quality and quantity for thirty-six million people downstream. It would increase air pollution in Salt Lake City, where air quality is already the worst in the Nation. Listed as a top 10 environmental documentary of 2014 by EcoWatch!
