BECOME A VOLUNTEER

Maybe it’s a willing attitude and scuba gear, a special connection or knowledge of boat maintenance, a good story about the bay, a flair with a pen or camera, or a business that might be able to provide a service. Peconic Baykeeper is always looking for volunteers to help us protect our waterways. Contact our office at (631) 653-4804 or info@peconicbaykeeper.org to tell us how you’d like to contribute!

Report Polution

Report Polution

Bay area residents and water sports enthusiasts are often the first witnesses of sewage spills, wet land filling, algal blooms, fish die offs, unauthorized fencing of public shorelines, or other actions that harm our estuary ecosystem. If you witness or encounter pollution, you can report it to Peconic Baykeeper for investigation at (631) 653-4804 or info@peconicbaykeeper.org.

Please include the date, location, and a description of the incident, as well as your name and contact information. Reporting pollution to PBK can help provide an evidentiary connection between pollution and animal die offs and habitat destruction, or alert PBK and the authorities to a potential toxic situation. At a minimum, you are taking ownership of protecting our natural resources—a collective responsibility we share to protect our bays.
