Billion Oyster Project

Billion Oyster Project

Billion Oyster Project is an ecosystem restoration and education non-profit restoring oyster reefs to New York Harbor through public education initiatives. The hands-on science of reef construction and monitoring is executed through community oysters reefs, in-school restoration-based STEM learning opportunities, volunteer programs, community science and research, and restaurant shell collection. We envision reviving our shared blue space, creating a healthier, happier, and more resilient city—one oyster reef at a time.

donateNYC Partner Fact: In 2017, the BOP collection program recovered over 345,600 pounds of oyster shells from restaurants and events.
