In ”Fish and Ships: The Story of the Ny/NJ Harbor Estuary”, Andy Willner, former NY/NJ Baykeeper, told the story of the urban tapestry that is the Hudson-Raritan Harbor estuary: its beauty and bounty, diversity and tenacity.
Stunning photographs illustrated the wilderness and industry that reside tenuously side-by-side: 150 fish species, 300 bird species, 20 million people, glass towers, highways, gritty refineries - an area in need of ecological repair. Andy presented some of the restoration strategies that will preserve this vibrant area.
