More than 50 restaurants, caterers and seafood wholesalers from Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia are participating in an unusual recycling program started earlier in the year by the Oyster Recovery Partnership.

VOA's Elizabeth Lee explains why oysters are so important to the Chesapeake Bay and how recycling their shells can help grow their numbers.
