Save the Sound

Working in both New York and Connecticut, Save the Sound has established a 40-year track record of restoring and protecting the waters and shorelines of the Sound. Our success is based on scientific knowledge, legal expertise, and thousands of ordinary people teaming up to give a little and make a big difference.

Save the Sound is working for a cleaner, healthier, more vibrant Long Island Sound, where humans and marine life can prosper year-round. Our goals:

(1) Make our beaches safe for swimming all the time.
(2) Make our waters healthy for fish and wildlife.
(3) Restore habitats and rebuild thriving fish stocks.
(4) Protect our critical riverfronts and coastal areas.

NEW: Take the Long Island Sound Pledge!

Share our Vision and Excitement!

Over the next ten years, with your engagement and support, we can make major strides on our goals. We have the Sound's largest legal and legislative staff. Our habitat restoration and green projects team is the only group on the Sound with deep engineering and construction management experience and training. With your volunteer and financial support, together we can Save the Sound!
