Heal the Bay is an environmental nonprofit dedicated to making the coastal waters and watersheds of Greater Los Angeles safe, healthy and clean.
To fulfill our mission, we use science, education, community action and advocacy.
Today, the greatest threats to our coastal waters and watersheds, and to all of us – both human and animal – that rely on the ocean for pleasure, income or sustenance, come from urban and stormwater runoff, plastic pollution, and the ever-increasing stresses to our marine environment from over-fishing and climate change.
To meet these challenges, Heal the Bay continues to partner with you and thousands of your neighbors in southern California through community action programs such as Nothin’ But Sand and Coastal Cleanup Day and through advocacy efforts to move municipal, state and Federal government and regulatory agencies to act in our collective interests. We couldn’t meet our challenges without the help of local businesses, community leaders, grassroots activists, and our dedicated volunteers and supporters across Los Angeles County and beyond.
Working together, we can protect and save one of our most precious, natural resources – with your help, we can heal the bay.
