I grew up in a coastal New England town and spent my summers on the beaches of the Atlantic. Now I live in the Midwest, and even though we have beaches and coastal areas, it’s just not the same. I miss the smell of salt in the air, the seafood, and the opportunity to go fishing with the hope of catching a true sea monster. If I ever get back out there, I hope that there will be more to enjoy than just the salty air. Our coastal areas are some of our most ecologically important and sensitive places, and that’s why the American Littoral Society is working to protect them. Founded in 1961, they’re a Highlands, NJ based non-profit organization that “promotes the study and conservation of marine life and habitat, protects the coast from harm, and empowers others to do the same.”

Take This Littorally

I’ll admit that I had to look the word “littoral” up before I wrote this post. According to Wikipedia, it means “the part of a sea, lake or river that is close to the shore.” There’s a lot of littoral zone in the U.S., and that means that the American Littoral Society is always busy. They have some location specific programs focused on places like Barnegat Bay, Jamaica Bay, and Delaware Bay, and their are also broader programs like fish tagging, litigation, and beach grass planting. If it has to do with protecting coastal areas, there’s a good chance that the American Littoral Society is working on it. If you love the coast as much as I do, you may want to check out the American Littoral Society’s internships on Idealist. Right now they’re looking for a paid Environmental Education Intern.
