About the Billion Oyster Project
Billion Oyster Project is a non-profit organization whose mission is to restore oyster reefs in New York Harbor through public education initiatives. Why oysters? Their reefs provide habitat for many marine species, have the ability to filter water and help protect New York City shorelines from storm damage. Based on the belief that restoration without education is temporary and observing that learning outcomes improve when students have the opportunity to work on real restoration projects, Billion Oyster Project partners with public schools. The team designs the STEM curriculum for New York schools through the lens of oyster restoration and engages Urban Assembly New York Harbor School students in large-scale restoration projects, collects oyster shells thrown in dozens of New York restaurants and engages the local community. The project introduced 75 million oysters to 16 acres and 18 reef sites, with the help of more than 8,000 students and 11,000 volunteers.

Please drink responsibly.
