Our waters are an integral part of life for us, making Long Island a desirable place to live. The Marine Program, which became part of CCE in 1985, is known and respected nationally and internationally. Its mission is to protect our waters, providing a clean environment for our fish, fowl and plants.
Our researchers and educators are busy working to inform Long Islanders how we can each do our part to safeguard our environment. Projects have been designed to bring back our once thriving eelgrass and shell fish populations, ensure our commercial fishing industry continues to thrive while limiting bycatch, provide public education about environmental consequences of storm water runoff, and introduce our young people to marine sciences and marine life on Long Island.
“Sea Something, Save Something” is a ‘call-to-action’ art show featuring many local artists of Long Island. The purpose of the show is to raise awareness to protect our marine environment.
CCE will partner with the Town of Southampton to develop an outreach and education center at the Tiana Bayside Facility.
