2016 CBF Year In Review

By the Numbers

Underwater grasses expanded 21 percent. The blue crab population jumped 35 percent. The Bay's native oyster population, a critical species that naturally filters the Bay's water, is rebounding. 2016 was a great year for CBF, but there's still so much more to do to Save the Bay.
