Stand Up for the Bay's Blue Crab: Sign the Pledge!

Exploring the Bay and all its wildlife with Aberdeen High School students.

The Chesapeake Bay watershed is home to more than 2,700 species of wildlife, and perhaps the most iconic of them all is the blue crab. Known as the Bay's "beautiful swimmer," blue crabs are inextricably linked to the Chesapeake's history, economy, and cultural fabric.

But the Bay and many of its rivers and streams continue to be listed on EPA's "dirty waters" list, endangering the Chesapeake's creatures, like the blue crab, that depend on clean water to survive.

We need your help to restore the Bay and protect the creatures that call it home. Sign your name below to stand with CBF and commit to doing your part to restore the blue crab and all the extraordinary critters of the Bay and its rivers and streams.
