Press Room

Welcome to the Save The Bay Press Room.

Our Communications Team, along with all of Save The Bay’s environmental ecologists, educators, waterkeepers and advocates, works with the news media across all platforms to tell the stories of Narragansett Bay, the threats that endanger it, the efforts to protect it, the marine life that depend on it and the people who love it. We strive to be as responsive to media requests and timelines as possible within our areas of expertise, and we strive to connect members of the press with the most appropriate Save The Bay subject-area-expert.
