Founded in 1985 and dedicated to making Santa Monica Bay safe and healthy again for people and marine life, Heal the Bay is one of the largest nonprofit environmental organizations in Los Angeles County with more than 10,000 members. The organization focuses on education, outreach, research and advocacy to achieve their goals for the Santa Monica Bay.
Accomplishments for 2012 Heal the Bay continued to build our volunteer force in the Santa Monica Mountains by training new volunteers to serve as stewards of the Malibu Creek Watershed. In 2012, we trained 40 new water chemistry monitoring volunteers, and held monthly monitoring events. We released our State of the Malibu Creek Watershed Report, which reviews the past 12 years of water quality and biological monitoring conducted through the Heal the Bay Stream Team program. Heal the Bay continued to work in Los Angeles elementary schools through strong partnerships, which allowed us to bridge the gap for students in low-income communities who are receiving limited science education. Heal the Bayís popular Santa Monica Pier Aquarium chalked up another successful year. Families visited by the hundreds -- 240 people per hour on one particular Sunday. And our 2-hour marine biology classes for budding young scientists filled up in record numbers as well. Our work continued on Plastic Bag Bans. As of 2012, over 100 cities and counties in California have adopted or are considering banning single-use bags, including the City of L.A. This year, Heal the Bay advocated for a strong and effective stormwater permit, which was being considered by the L.A. Regional Water Quality Board. We galvanized support for strong pollution limits from a broad cross-section of Angelenos, providing nearly 2000 petitions signed by concerned members of the public. Heal the Bay completed its 10th year of educating pier anglers about the health risks of consuming DDT and PCB contaminated fish caught from piers between Santa Monica and Seal Beach. Since its inception in 2003, this EPA-award winning program has reached out to over 100,000 anglers at various LA and OC piers. In 2012, Heal the Bay organized our single largest volunteer event: Our Earth Day Beach Cleanup where more than 2100 volunteers showed. Between November 2011-September 2012, we held 632 cleanups with 36,400 volunteers.
