Bay Progress

The Chesapeake Bay Program released the Bay Barometer report the end of January giving a mixed review.  Progress needs to be recognized while understanding that persistence and new efforts will be needed to stay on a positive restoration track. The report is a science-based snapshot of a range of health indicators. Bay Barometer: Bay impaired, but signs of resilience abound

  1. Being just new to the bay area (this will be my 3rd boating season), it’s magical charm has captivated me from the beginning. I have been impressed with the wildlife as well. Crabs, fish, healthy vegatation, and Osprey. Have you been able to notice a rise in ecological stability at all? I’m curious what to look out for as I start my new voyages.

    • Welcome to the Bay! I feel quite positive about improvements, as the report shows. Gains have been made in spite of an almost doubling of population within the watershed in the past 30 years. Enjoy the abundant wildlife – and especially crabs and oysters 🙂
