To protect Nantucket Sound in perpetuity
The mission of the Alliance to Protect Nantucket Sound (also known as Save Our Sound) is to secure permanent protection for Nantucket Sound, the historic body of water that lies between Cape Cod and the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. The goal of the Alliance is to establish the Sound as a protected area to preserve its rich ecology and to safeguard it against future inappropriate development. The Alliance also promotes the Sound’s unique environmental, historic, and economic values through educational initiatives. Our supporters include municipalities, tribal groups, chambers of commerce, historic preservation organizations, environmental groups, off-shore wind developers, fishing and boating entities, the Cape Cod delegation, the Governor of Massachusetts, and countless individuals across the Cape and Islands.
