Our Mission, Our Goal
Restore. Renew. Recover.
Founded in 1997, Puget Sound Restoration Fund works collaboratively to restore marine habitat, water quality, and native species in Puget Sound through on-the-ground projects. We are committed to a vision of a clean and healthy Sound that is productive, full of life, and capable of sustaining us. The populations we rebuild to achieve that vision – oysters, abalone, kelp – are key to maintaining ecosystem health. The community shellfish farms we've launched are designed to spur clean water efforts and re-forge connections between people and resources.
