Save The Bay wants to inspire the Bay Hero in everyone, and this year, we will honor and celebrate four Bay Heroes who dig in and give back to our Bay in extraordinary ways. Bay Heroes embody the courageous spirits of Save The Bayâ€™s founders, Sylvia McLaughlin, Esther Guilick, and Kay Kerr. They act boldly and creatively to protect our beautiful San Francisco Bay for people, wildlife, and future generations.Â
We are proud to announce this yearâ€™s inaugural Bay Heroes and look forward to honoring them during our VIP Catamaran event
on September 29, 2018.
â€œThis sounds weird, butÂ I feelÂ deeply wronged by what weâ€™ve done to the environmentâ€¦ and itâ€™s always informed how I interact with the natural world.â€

â€œI never, honestly, thought about trying to protect the environment when I was growing up. But seeing how much Sasha cared made me ask: â€˜what kind of world am I leaving for her, for her kids someday?â€™â€
â€œThink global; act local. There are opportunities to solve environmental challenges all around and if you start in the areas that you know best, then you can take that solution and share it globally.â€
