What We Do (H2)

Our mission is to protect and improve Narragansett Bay. Our vision is a fully swimmable, fishable, healthy Narragansett Bay, accessible to all and globally recognized as the natural treasure it is. At Save The Bay, it takes a dedicated team of staff, volunteers, and leadership to continue our mission. Through an ecosystem-based approach to environmental action:

  • Our Narragansett Baykeeper, Narragansett Bay Riverkeeper and South County Coastkeeper act as watchdogs to ensure the Bay and its watershed is protected.
  • Our educators work tirelessly to keep the public aware of the importance of our waters and to teach good stewardship.
  • Our policy team works closely with state and local governments to pass laws that protect the Bay and keep lines of communication open with lawmakers on the importance of environmental action.

Who We Are

Our History (H3)

Save The Bay was founded in 1970 on the community’s desire to protect our most precious resource – Narragansett Bay. To do that, Save The Bay has focused on the development of a committed constituency for the Bay. Children and adults throughout this region have learned the tremendous value the Bay brings to our economy, our environment, and our quality of life.

Defending The Bay (H4)

In defense of Narragansett Bay and its watershed, Save The Bay has watched over the activities and programs of the government and the citizenry that degrade the environmental quality of the Bay, basin, and watershed. We provide educational opportunities for children and adults to explore the Bay, fostering an understanding and a sense of personal responsibility for the resource.

Pollution Harms Our Bay

Water pollution harms Narragansett Bay’s waters and marine life, and the people who depend on it for their livelihood and quality of life.The major sources of pollution are wastewater treatment plants, cesspools and septic systems, and stormwater runoff that carries pollution from the land and into our waters.

I led my first coastal cleanup about 27 years ago. I was concerned about the condition we were leaving our plant in for future generations and I wanted to do my part. I found Save The Bay was doing that in a variety of ways. Do you want to help preserve the natural workd? Then become active in an organization that protects irr. We do make a difference. You too can help save the planet a little piece at a time.
