Cronin has worked as an advocate, legislative and congressional aide, commercial fisherman, professor, author and filmmaker. He is known internationally for his Hudson River work, for which the Wall Street Journal called him "a unique presence on America's major waterways." He was the Hudson’s original Riverkeeper and the founder and CEO of the Beacon Institute for Rivers and Estuaries. Time magazine named him a “Hero for the Planet” and People magazine described him as “equal parts detective, scientist and public advocate.”
