Take Action to Green the America's Cup Races in San Francisco
An estimated 1.6 million visitors are expected to crowd San Francisco Bay shores during the America’s Cup races 2012-2013, dramatically increasing impacts to our sensitive coastal habitats, our clean air, and our water quality. Specific remedies to these issues are overlooked in many areas of the vague Draft Environmental Impact Report. Take action today to send a strong message to the city of San Francisco's Planning Department that the final EIR must include more specific plans to protect the Bay!
Thank you to everyone who took action to help us Green the America's Cup! Watch for news and updates.

Reduce Impacts to Sensitive Habitats
The support vessels and spectator boats, new development on piers at the Port of San Francisco including a new cruise ship terminal and superyacht marinas, and transporting crowds to and from waterfront parks, greenbelts and other shoreline viewing areas threaten established environmental conditions we have worked for decades to secure. The increased trash, air pollution, and water pollution in sensitive wetland habitats must be accounted for and eliminated where possible.
