Kevin McAllister has been essential to theSoMAS program at Stony Brook University as well as largely to the Southampton campus MarineScience program. The colloboration between the Peconic Bay Keeper and the Marine Science program has been immensely successful and vital to the community. In order to produce change in the way of thinking in a coastal area, we all need to pull together our individual resources to bring about improvement in the environment. The Peconic Baykeeper is performing such a service.

Peconic Baykeeper was instrumental in helping boating organizations in the Great South Bay achieve the launch of additional pump-out boats in the Town of Islip (1 boat) and the Town of Brookhaven (2 boats).

The one pump-out boat in the Town of Islip withdrew thousands of gallons of waste
in just their first season from the recreational boaters in their area of the Great South Bay. That was a huge environmental improvement and success.

The increased number of pump-out boats in the Great South Bay then enabled the Peconic Baykeeper to apply for, and win, the formal designation of a "No Discharge Zone" for the Great South Bay.

In my experience, the Peconic Baykeeper is "the real thing". They worked selflessly and achieved the outcomes described here. They are a true asset for the Great South Bay, Peconic Bay and nearby waters.

I personally made presentations to parts of the South Shore Estuary Reserve, which later resulted in our South Bay Cruising Club becoming a member of the South Shore Estuary Reserve, Citizens Advisory Committee. The Peconic Baykeeper was already a member of that committee and eagerly joined the effort to promote pump-out boats on the Great South Bay. As mentioned earlier, the Peconic Baykeeper was instrumental in the Great South Bay getting additional pump-out boats and a "No Discharge" designation.

I would love to see this organization "cloned" so there were more of them, like the Peconic Baykeeper. The Peconic Baykeeper is very effective at what they do, and could easily be a role model for other similar groups.
