Save The Bay believes everyone, from humans to wildlife, should have a place to call home. But with our focus on Bay restoration, climate change, and …


The electric vehicle charging company Volta typically receives the same question when they say they provide “free fuel” at their more than 140 charging stations around the Bay Area, “What’s the catch?” They will happily reply, “There is none!” Volta pays for the power you put in your EV with digital ad screens on their chargers at convenient locations like Trader Joes and Whole Foods. Volta generously donated ad space to Save The Bay in March, so we sat down with Jen Capasso and Nina Rush from Volta to learn more about how they are helping people ditch fossil fuels …

When we look for answers we need to look further inland to one of the greatest sources of Bay trash… our city streets. Trash is a daily and persistent threat to the health …

Save The Bay’s achievements prove the power of many different voices joining in common cause. Now acts of hatred and rallies for intolerance show that unity is needed more than ever. Not long ago, we drove wildlife to extinction by damming rivers, cutting down forests, tearing down hillsides for minerals, and almost filling in San Francisco Bay. Yet we united to save majestic redwoods, scenic shorelines, eagles, elephant seals, and sea otters. Just last year more …
