San Francisco Baykeeper

Baykeeper defends San Francisco Bay and its watershed from the biggest environmental threats and holds polluters accountable. For 35 years, we’ve used science, advocacy, and law to achieve hundreds of legal and policy victories that have reduced industrial pollution, sewage spills, fossil fuel contamination, and toxic pollutants entering the Bay. Our efforts to protect the Bay’s wildlife and communities are regularly featured in local, state, and national media, which refer to Baykeeper as "one of the region's most active and most effective defenders” of the environment.

Baykeeper is a growing organization with a bold mission to fight for justice with communities around the Bay Area who have the right to clean water and healthy neighborhoods protected from corporate polluters and government wrongdoing.

Baykeeper values passion, integrity, and respect in all our endeavors, including in how we treat our employees. We are committed to continuously building on our equitable and inclusive workplace. We support the physical and mental health of our employees, as well as a positive work-life balance.

Our embrace of diversity, equity, and inclusion is underpinned by long-term collaborations with multiple Bay Area community groups and environmental justice organizations. Staffed by eight experienced lawyers and scientists, our Science and Legal Departments use technical and scientific-based analysis to support legal and policy advocacy to address environmental injustices against people and wildlife.
