Protect Oyster Reefs

Price: $100.00

For thousands of years, oyster reefs have provided food and habitat for birds and marine life. They buffer our coasts from waves and improve water quality and clarity by filtering impurities from the water. Reefs support the growth of essential coastal vegetation like marshes and seagrass beds.

During the last century, intense oyster harvesting, pollution, disease and degraded habitat have combined to make oyster reefs the most severely impacted marine habitat on Earth. Globally, 85 percent of oyster reefs have been lost. Without oyster reefs, our coastal ecosystems breakdown marine life declines, shorelines erode, and marshes and sea grasses disappear.

Your gift could protect 10 square feet of oyster reefs.
