The Mighty Oysters of New York Harbor

May 03, 2012

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.
