Puget Soundkeeper is a member of the Waterkeeper Alliance, a global movement founded by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. We are a team of dedicated staff and citizen volunteers whose mission is to protect and preserve the waters of Puget Sound. We patrol and monitor the Sound on a weekly basis. In addition to on-the-water advocacy, Soundkeeper uses legal action to stop polluters in their tracks by invoking the citizens power to sue under the Clean Water Act of 1972. We pursue the Clean Water Act's goals daily through active engagement with businesses, government agencies and citizens. Soundkeeper also gets involved at many levels of government and legislation to toughen pollution standards. We appreciate the beauty and richness of the Puget Sound and are dedicated to its long term protection.
