In 2014 something incredible happened: Californian legislators, environmentalists, community groups, labor unions, and business groups all came together to pass a piece of environmental legislation to ban single use plastic shopping bags.

Bay Area voters’ approval of Measure AA is the biggest win for our Bay in decades, and it would never have happened without Save The Bay’s supporters. Our victory will mean cleaner water, more abundant wildlife, and greater climate change resilience for our Bay. Because of Measure AA, we’re on track to pass on a healthier and more vibrant Bay to our children and grandchildren. It feels...
The Bay Area is full of beautiful views, amazing natural resources, vibrant cities and diverse people – these are just a few of the reasons why the Mayors of Oakland, San Jose and San Francisco have joined forces to create an official day to celebrate our region. The mayors of the Bay Area’s three largest cities dedicated the first Saturday in October as Bay Day, and Saturday, October 1st, 2016...
Click to view slideshow. One of the most widespread pollutants of the Bay is something that gets scant notice from passers-by, but remains surprisingly, and disturbingly, widespread: cigarette butts are polluting the Bay by the tens of thousands.

With 965,543 votes counted so far, the measure is passing with 69.08% of the vote and the campaign is confident in its projected victory. “All indications...
On Tuesday, June 7th, Bay Area voters will have an historic opportunity to protect our region’s wetlands by voting Yes on Measure AA for a Clean and Healthy Bay. We know that Measure AA has many benefits: cleaner water, increased wildlife habitat, improved public access to the Bay, and a healthier San Francisco Bay for future generations. But who exactly are the Bay Area residents who will...

On Tuesday, June 7th, voters in all nine Bay Area counties will have the opportunity to secure funding for wetland restoration for the entire Bay.  In addition to the many benefits this measure offers  — improved water quality, reductions in trash and toxic pollution, carbon sequestration,...

But we can’t do it alone. Having the support of local elected officials, community leaders, and groups that voters trust has helped us tremendously in...
It’s hard to visualize what over 100,000 California native plants looks like. But it’s exciting to think of the habitat they will create when fully established at our restoration sites around the San Francisco Bay. Save The Bay’s Habitat Restoration team is very proud of the accomplishments made this past planting season, reaching our most ambitious goals to date with a grand total of 103,770...
