On Water Quality and Coastal Erosion
Speaker: John Torgan
The ocean and the coast define our way of life in Rhode Island. The Nature Conservancy (TNC) works to protect our valuable resources, including the health of our fresh and salt water. Using the best available science, TNC addresses water quality, coastal erosion, and the effects of cli-mate change through habitat management and coastal restoration.
John Torgan is the RI State Director of The Nature Conservancy. Prior to joining TNC in 2011, John worked for Save the Bay, serving as Narragansett Baykeeper and Director of Advocacy. In addition to guiding TNC activities within Rhode Island, John also works regionally and nationally on TNC efforts around fisheries, coastal resilience, and water quality.
