The River Cam and its tributaries are suffering badly from over-abstraction, agricultural run-off and sewage discharge leaving them in poor condition with very low flow levels and dirty water. We believe this vital chalk stream river system, so integral to the character and nature of Cambridge's landscape, must be helped to recover to a more natural and clean state. The Climate Emergency makes a bad situation worse.
Since 1961, Save The Bay’s leadership team has taken inspiration from our three courageous founders, Sylvia McLaughlin, Kay Kerr and Esther Gulick. Their bravery and determination has served as our guide in expanding the scope of Save The Bay’s programming, from preventing Bay fill to restoring wetlands, reducing pollution, and educating future generations of Bay stewards.
