The Mighty Oysters of New York Harbor
Oysters—once more abundant in New York Harbor than anywhere else in the world—fell victim to over-harvesting and pollution. But today, thanks to the efforts of a few key groups—like the NY Harbor School—New York's oysters are making a comeback. Hear moderator Andy Revkin lead a panel discussion on how these little bivalves can help restore New York Harbor to its former glory.
This panel took place as part of Science & the City's "Can Oysters Save the World?" event on April 26, 2012.
