Bay Foundation Grades Chesapeake's Health A D-Plus
January 19, 2023
The ecological health of the nation’s largest estuary remains stuck at a low level, according to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.
The Annapolis, MD-based environmental group graded the Bay’s overall vitality a D+, the same lackluster mark it got in 2020.
In a note introducing its biennial State of the Bay report, CBF President & CEO Hilary Harp Falk said it “shows there is still a long way to go to create a watershed that works for all of us.”
CBF said that 7 of the 13 pollution, fisheries and habitat indicators it tracks remained unchanged, while three improved and three worsened.
