The Great Bay NERR's mission is to promote informed management of the Great Bay Estuary through linked programs of research, education, and stewardship. These programs enhance scientific understanding of the estuary and communicate this information to interested citizens and decision-makers. The Reserve's programs focus on management-relevant issues aligned with four priority topics:
  1. Land conservation and stewardship
  2. Water quality
  3. Biological communities and habitats
  4. Climate change impacts and adaptation

The integration of research, education, and stewardship places the Reserve in a unique position to address these important issues.
