It’s Up to Us to Make a Difference!

CBF's 2018 State of the Bay Report makes it clear that the Chesapeake Bay needs our support now more than ever.

Simply put, the Bay suffered a massive assault in 2018. Extraordinary weather flushed enormous amounts of nitrogen, phosphorous, and debris—mostly from Pennsylvania, but also from other regions—off our lands and into the Bay. As a result, the State of the Bay Report score fell one point to a 33.

Still, there are heartening signs that the Bay is building resiliency. Bay grasses remain intact and recent studies indicate an improving trend in underwater dead zones over the long term. But the system remains dangerously out of balance. And new challenges like climate change and a federal administration attempting to rollback fundamental environmental protections are threatening success.

Help us combat these attacks. Give today and help save the Bay!
