Since 1961, the American Littoral Society has promoted the study and protection of marine coastal life and habitat along the eastern seaboard of the United States. The organization uses education, conservation and advocacy to support coastal interests. By involving residents in its habitat restoration strategy, the society empowers people to take ownership and to become engaged land stewards. Grassroots organizing, legislative advocacy and litigation are also used to drive environmental policy change.
The American Littoral Society has long worked on conservation in New Jersey’s Barnegat Bay and the Delaware Bay, in addition to improving Jamaica Bay in New York and preserving its disappearing salt marshes. Since October 2012, mitigating damage from Superstorm Sandy has been another priority. The storm reshaped much of the coast between Delaware Bay and the Long Island Sound. The society worked with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to complete a regional assessment of the environmental impact, and this document guides work on the most critical habitat restoration priorities.
Thank you for sharing.
