About the Campaign

Give a Sip is a WCS campaign based out of the New York Aquarium. There our experts work to protect the New York Bight, more than 16,000 square miles of coastal and ocean waters from Montauk, NY, to Cape May, NJ.

Through local field research, policy initiatives, and public outreach, our team seeks to protect and restore threatened species and critical habitat, encourage smart ocean planning to ensure a safe place for wildlife in our busy waters, and build ecological resilience in nearshore and river habitats.

Many people don't realize how vibrant and alive the waters around New York actually are. Our brand-new New York Aquarium exhibit, Donald Zucker and Barbara Hrbek Zucker Ocean Wonders: Sharks!, helps excite people about this and educates them on the problem of plastic pollution.
