Baruch Institute

  • Baruch Field Lab Group


The future of coastal and marine environments is being influenced by decisions being made individually and societally, locally and globally.  Why should we care? 

Because the importance of these environments stretches far beyond their geographic domain; because we cannot exist separate from our environment; because how we live, where we live, and what resources are available will be determined by choices made about the use and management of these environments.

As a supporter of the Baruch Institute, you will contribute to scholarships and educational opportunities for future leaders, furthering our research and understanding of these environments and the effects of human activities, and contributing to wise decision making by helping make the best knowledge available to regulatory agencies, other scientists and researchers, and the public.

We hope you will choose to join us in our efforts to ensure that our future - our common future - is one we have chosen wisely.
