Save Barnegat Bay had a fantastic time at the 2018 inaugural Sea.Hear.Now Festival which was produced by Danny Clinch of Between The Sets, and C3 Presents, the team behind Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits Music Festival, Shaky Festivals and more. With feet in the sand, fans enjoyed music on the beach with more than 25 bands on 3 stages at North Beach Asbury Park and Bradley Park.

We hope to be a part of the 2019 festival and to see you there too!

Virtual Science Talk: People's Effect on Terrapins @ Virtual

This virtual event is something you are not going to want to miss! R.S.V.P. to Graceanne at [email protected] to get your ZOOM link to attend this event.

Diamond Back Terrapins in the Barnegat Bay are heavily impacted by people. Save Barnegat Bay awarded Emma Riley an award at the Jersey Shore Science Fair for her exceptional work on heavy medals and their effect on terrapins. Joined by her peer Brady Nichols and his stellar work on the heat of roads and their likely effect on terrapin eggs, both students will present their findings and answer questions about their science.

Emma and Brady are students at the Marine Academy of Technology and Environmental Science studying under the guidance of Dr. John Wnek, the leading expert on our resident terrapin population. This event is a great opportunity to learn about this keystone species!
