Develop or adapt innovative approaches to restoration and water quality improvements
Participate in cutting-edge research and investigate potential strategies for mitigating ocean acidification.
Engage people in growing food on the beach in order to provide tasty incentives for good stewardship practices.
Recover native species that have lost breeding populations, maintain genetic diversity, and conduct research on the effect of changing seawater conditions.

Our Mission, Our Goal
Restore. Renew. Recover.
Founded in 1997, Puget Sound Restoration Fund works collaboratively to restore marine habitat, water quality, and native species in Puget Sound. We are committed to a vision of a clean and healthy Sound that is productive, full of life, and capable of sustaining us. The populations we rebuild to achieve that vision – oysters, abalone, kelp – are key to maintaining ecosystem health. The community shellfish farms we've launched are designed to spur clean water efforts and re-forge connections between people and resources.
