Media Center

Save The Bay is proud of the media relationships we have nourished over the past 40 years. With more than four decades of improving water quality throughout the Narragansett Bay watershed region, we are recognized as one of the leading authorities on environmental issues that face our region.

As a grassroots and volunteer-driven organization, we are proud of our innovative public education and other outreach programs. As a science-driven organization, we prize objectivity and a clear-eyed view of the regional environmental landscape.

We cherish these same values in our relationship with the working press. We want to work closely with you to tell important stories about the state of our Bay and its watershed. All visitors to this site have a vested interest in the ongoing health of our Bay and its watershed. We're happy to assist reporters, editors, bloggers, and citizen journalists find compelling stories and photographs, as well as policy briefs and data.
