About Coastal Wildlife

Save Coastal Wildlife is a 501(c)(3) non-profit wildlife preservation organization that began in 2018. We are dedicated to educating people about coastal wildlife and the importance of protecting the ocean and estuaries, and keeping our beaches clean on the Jersey Shore - from Raritan Bay down to Delaware Bay.

Save Coastal Wildlife nonprofit was created by members of a local volunteer watershed group known as the Bayshore Regional Watershed Council. The watershed council began around 2000 as a project of the Monmouth County Planning Board. Over time, the Bayshore Watershed Council became an independent volunteer group of like-minded people who were dedicated to cleaning up the local environment along Raritan Bay & Sandy Hook Bay. Many successful projects conducted by the watershed council involved wildlife monitoring activities including horseshoe monitoring, seal surveys and fish surveys along Raritan Bay & Sandy Hook Bay. During 2017-2018, several members of the watershed council decided that more could be accomplished if a nonprofit was created to raise funds and create a base of citizen-science volunteers with the goal to protect coastal wildlife and educate people about local estuarine & marine wildlife throughout the State of New Jersey.

Centennial Celebration Series! It's a Wonderful Life

Classic Radio Road Show will present the feel good holiday classic "It's A Wonderful Life" premiering December 2. The virtual radio play will be available to enjoy through early January. Experience the magic of this much loved story in a whole new way!

Experience "It’s A Wonderful Life" as a radio play, based on the classic holiday movie. Actors portray numerous characters, and sound effects are created by Foley artists. "It’s A Wonderful Life" is about George Bailey, a generous and well-meaning man who has become too downcast and tired to continue living. With help from a lovable angel, George will see what life would be like if he wasn't born with the hope George will have a change of heart and understand the true spirit of the holidays.

Classic Radio Road Show Players once again recreate the Golden Age of Radio. Scenes from this beloved play are enhanced by sound effects, music, and the voices of talented actors. Live performances of the scripts by the most creative writers of the era will trigger your imagination. It's called theater of the mind.
