The Billion Oyster Project

  • $3.00
Oyster reefs provide habitat for hundreds of species, and protect our city from storm damage by softening the blow of large waves, reducing flooding, and preventing erosion along shorelines. Billion Oyster Project is restoring oyster reefs to New York Harbor in collaboration with New York City community groups.

More information:
Billion Oyster Project's goal is to restore one billion oysters to New York Harbor by 2035. We have a handful of oyster nurseries up and running, where we grow oysters for reef installations and scientific experiments. The project aims to engage one million people during its lifetime, with an emphasis on introducing school children to their local environment through restoration-based STEM education programs.
