Heal The Bay achieved significant accomplishments in 2023 toward safeguarding our waters, preserving biodiversity, and raising awareness about the importance of environmental conservation.

In 2023:

🪣Heal the Bay volunteers removed more than 22,000 lbs. of trash from our watershed!

🐟The Aquarium and Angler Outreach program celebrate 20 years of success including educating more than 190,000 anglers.

🌊Our annual Beach Report Card Monitored over 700 beaches providing access to the latest in water quality information to the public along the west coast from Washington to Tiajuana.

Through our collective efforts and with your unwavering support, we worked tirelessly to create cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable coastal waters and watersheds for Los Angeles and beyond from summit to sea. As we reflect on the achievements of this past year, we are thrilled to carry this momentum into the coming year, always aiming to make a lasting difference. Celebrate them with us!
