Although the 2020 Galveston Bay Report Card placed the bay at the same health rating for the sixth consecutive year, experts said local pollution reduction efforts are taking off and spurring improvements on a smaller scale.

The Bay has earned an overall C grade-which signifies the Bay’s health is “adequate for now”-but Galveston Bay Foundation President Bob Stokes said the Bay is a “really healthy” place.


Our message overall from the beginning is there's millions of people that live right around Galveston Bay, and every single person can have an impact on the Bay.
