You can restore a living Hudson River
When colonists first settled our region, the Hudson was said to run silver with fish, and populations were considered inexhaustible. Even just 60 years ago, local residents pulled their dinner out of the river without fear for their health.
Sadly, that’s not possible today. According to the EPA’s own estimates, Hudson River fish won’t be safe for women and children to eat for at least another 50 years. And American shad and herring populations that collapsed 30 years ago won’t bounce back for decades.
We're fighting to bring the Hudson's life back from the brink, but we need all hands on deck to have any hope of success.
Please join Riverkeeper today to restore a living river, with clean water not just for the millions of New Yorkers who draw their drinking water from the Hudson, but for the fish, birds, and other animals who call the river home.
