Stop the Transport of Explosive Oil Over Neglected Rail Bridges

Ask Your Senators to Stand Against Indian Point

Neither Sen. Chuck Schumer nor Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has made a strong public statement expressing a position on the future of Indian Point. Contact Sen. Schumer and contact Sen. Gillibrand, and ask each of them to take a stand against the relicensing of Indian Point.

Report Dead Sturgeon

Atlantic and shortnose sturgeon are protected by the Endangered Species Act, and New York has committed to limiting impacts on these fish throughout the construction of the Tappan Zee Bridge project. Riverkeeper is carefully monitoring the process, and we’ve retained the right to enforce the permit requirements designed to protect sturgeon if sturgeon are being harmed. Be watchful when visiting the river, and make timely and thorough reports if you observe a dead sturgeon. Report Your Observations.
