The Billion Oyster Project

  • $1.00
Oyster reefs provide habitat for hundreds of species, and protect our city from storm damage — softening the blow of large waves reducing flooding, and preventing erosion along the shorelines. The Billion Oyster Project is restoring oyster reefs to New York Harbor in collaboration with New York City communities. $1: Restores 2 lbs. of oyster shells collected from New York City Restaurants and returned to NY Harbor $5: Restores 10 lbs. of oyster shells collected from New York City Restaurants and returned to NY Harbor $10: Restores 20 lbs. of oyster shells collected from New York City Restaurants and returned to NY Harbor More information: Billion Oyster Project's goal is to restore one billion live oysters to New York Harbor by 2034. We also run four oyster nurseries where we grow oysters for future reef installations and conduct scientific experiments. The project aims to engage hundreds of thousands of school children during its lifetime in marine restoration-based STEM education programs.
