Billion Oyster Project
The Billion Oyster Project (BOP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to restore oyster reefs to New York Harbor through public education initiatives. We lead a large-scale marine restoration effort to restore one billion live oysters in New York Harbor by 2035.

BOP engages the community through its restoration-based STEM education programs for
middle and high-school students, its collection program with NYC restaurants to collect oyster shells for reef substrate, and its volunteer program, which enables New Yorkers to get involved in hands-on community science restoration work.

Billion Oyster Project was born out of the New York Harbor School (NYHS), a public high school which provides a college preparatory education built upon New York City’s marine & maritime industry. NYHS remains Billion Oyster Project’s flagship education partner, instilling the ethics of environmental stewardship and the needed skills for careers on the water. As sophomores, Harbor School students enroll in one of seven career and technical education (CTE) programs including Aquaculture, Vessel Operations, Marine Biology Research, Professional Diving, Ocean Engineering, Maritime Policy & Advocacy, and Marine Systems Technology. Each CTE program has a role within the work of Billion Oyster Project, extending students’ education from
the classroom into a real-world context.


Our Vision
A future in which New York Harbor is the center of a rich, diverse and abundant estuary. The communities surrounding this complex ecosystem will help shape its vitality and in return enjoy its many benefits, including endless opportunities for work, education and recreation. The harbor is a world-class public space, well used and well cared for—our Commons.


Our Ethos

Restoration through Education
We believe that restoration without education is fleeting. To ensure the long-term health and productivity of our natural environment we must teach young people to care for, monitor and restore their Harbor.
Education through Restoration
We believe that students learn best when applying their studies to a large-scale ecosystem restoration project that challenges them to become active participants and takes them out of the classroom, down to the water’s edge to experience the ecosystem first-hand. We prioritize educational programs that are site-specific, project-based, and inquiry-based and that integrate a field work component.
