The Billion Oyster Project (BOP) is a long-term, large-scale plan to restore one billion live oysters to New York Harbor over the next twenty years and in the process train thousands of young people in New York City to restore the ecology and economy of their local marine environment.

BOP is a partnership of schools, businesses, nonprofits, and individuals all working together to grow oysters and make our city a healthier and more resilient place to live. This partnership also includes local, state, and federal regulatory agencies – the New York City Department of Environmental Protection, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – with whom we work closely to certify and monitor our aquaculture methodology and ongoing habitat restoration projects.

 

The Billion Oyster Project has been based at the New York Harbor School since its inception and is the nucleus of what is now the region's largest marine restoration program; a worldwide model for engaging youth in urban marine ecosystem restoration.

 

New York Harbor School students work hand in hand with the BOP. Our students grow, monitor, and research oysters and  their habitats through internships, volunteer work, and their respective CTE's.
