Sustainable Adelphi: Oyster Reef Restoration

 

Did you know? 

 

Oysters keep the ocean healthy. They can filter up to 50 gallons of water per day! 

 

But oyster habitats are endangered, having lost between 85-91% of their habitats globally. 

 

Did you also know that helping is as simple as returning oyster shells back into the water?

 

That’s the aim of the Community Oyster Restoration Effort (CORE). C.O.R.E. is a collaborative project with one main objective in mind: to collect oyster shells from local restaurants and use them to build and restrengthen Long Island oyster reefs.

 

Under the guidance of Adelphi faculty Aaren Freeman, P.h.D., associate professor of marine biology, and Ruth Coffey, Ph.D., visiting professor of environmental studies, members of Adelphi’s Environmental Action Coalition are working with the Town of Hempstead, Friends of the Bay, Oyster Bay/Cold Spring Harbor Protection Committee, and Long Beach High School to create and monitor oyster restoration habitats along Long Island’s south shore.

 

But C.O.R.E.'s mission extends beyond shells. The organization aspires to:

 

  • Help raise environmental awareness about the importance of oysters in their ecosystems, and protect them from becoming threatened or extinct

  • Encourage local restaurants to engage in ethical business practices

  • Advocate for citizens to reduce their individual environmental footprint

  • Facilitate a transition towards sustainable business models

  • Promote a mindset that values biodiversity and the individual benefits that each species brings to the table

  • Inspire participation in local environmental stewardship

 

When you give to C.O.R.E. on Giving Day, you support sustainability along Long Island's shores and throughout the community. Thank you for your generosity!
