Since 1985, people like you who care about our rivers, beaches and oceans have been a part of Heal the Bay's fight to make Southern California coastal waters and watersheds, including Santa Monica Bay, safe, healthy and clean.
As far back as our first fight to end the dumping of untreated wastewater from the Hyperion Sewage Treatment Plant, we've worked from a base of science to educate the you, the media and government agencies about the causes and effects of pollution on our Bay.
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.
