- Restaurants in New York City are donating their oyster shells to support restoration projects that will help shore up the disappearing coastline.
- The project will consist of nearly a half-mile of partially submerged breakwaters, strategically covered in recycled oyster reefs.
- When attached to rocks in the water, the bivalves can help make them resilient to pounding waves. Moreover, a single oyster can filter as much as 50 gallons of water a day.
