About this collection

The Estuarine Based Work (EBW) collection is a still image essay on the state of the U.S. Atlantic coast estuaries in 1968. Photographs were taken of pristine estuarine locations as well as those compromised by human intervention. From Maine to the Gulf coast of Florida, the images represent an early conservation effort by Sandy Hook Marine Laboratory directors, Lionel A. Walford, and John R. Clark to investigate the importance of estuarine areas to marine life, and to document the rapid degradation of those environments by encroaching development, industrial wastes, erosion, and pollution.
