The Chesapeake Bay was world famous for its vast oyster reefs. These structures were so grand that they would break above the water’s surface and even impact ship routes. Over time, disease, degraded water quality and over-harvesting caused the population to plummet to one to two percent of its historical abundance.

Please consider supporting us in our quest to restore life in the Chesapeake Bay, and ensure its future for generations to come. At ORP, 95% of all donations go directly into environmental education and recovery programs, so every dollar makes a difference.
