“Where the Sierra Nevada streams meet the waters of the Pacific—magic happens.  The San Francisco Bay enriches our soul, provides our climate and sustains our economy.  This global treasure is host to more than 750 species of fish, animals, and birds, and home to 8 million people.  I am committed to protecting this amazing resource by working with the Bay Institute to educate and inspire present and future generations.” -  Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom

“I have enjoyed working with The Bay Institute over the years to protect the San Francisco Bay and Delta.” - Barbara Boxer, United States Senator

“I am delighted that The Bay Institute and the Aquarium of the Bay have joined forces.  They are two San Francisco originals, guarding the most spectacular Bay in the world.” - David Chiu, President, City and County of San Francisco Supervisors
