Join us for a bayshore regional watershed meeting. Meetings are always informal and a great way to learn about the Raritan Bay & Sandy Hook Bay watershed.
Monitor Horseshoe Crabs in Raritan Bay, NJ
Join volunteers with Save Coastal Wildlife to help count and tag mating horseshoe crabs along the shores of Raritan Bay and Sandy Hook Bay, the northern bayshore region of New Jersey every spring.
Volunteers needed to help install nesting platforms
Please help us install new nesting platforms for ospreys or remove plastic debris from nesting platforms in the winter or spring.
Wetland and Dune Habitat Restoration
Volunteers help restore degraded natural areas along the coast. Learn about the plants and animals found in our local creeks, dunes, wetlands, woodlands, and other natural landscapes. Activities often include planting, watering, weeding, or spreading mulch.
Volunteer for a Public Clean-up
To Help Clean Up Our Coastline, Beaches, and Wetlands. Cleanups typically take place either on a Saturday or Sunday. Save Coastal Wildlife also offers independent volunteer cleanup events for businesses/corporations and schools during the week.
Help Us Seine the Bay
Twice during summer we seine Raritan & Sandy Hook Bays to examine the biological health of the estuary. We need volunteers to help seine, count aquatic species and conduct simple water testing activities for salinity, turbot and water temperature.
Winter Seal Survey
Help us count seals. Each year, volunteers with Save Coastal Wildlife carry out surveys of seals during the winter, when many seals have arrived to coastal waters in New York, New Jersey, and Delaware to rest and feed after a busy breeding season up in northern New England and Canada.
Terrapin Spotting Program
Diamondback terrapin habitat is bring lost. Let Save Coastal Wildlife know if you spot a diamondback terrapin turtle. The data will be used in mapping terrapin occurrences and habitats throughout the northern Jersey Shore area as part of a regional conservation strategy.
