Group has done much to protect surf spots and coastlines globally
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 14 December, 2017 - From permanently protecting Chile’s Punta de Lobos, to removing thousands of pounds of marine debris at Isla Todos Santos in Baja, to defeating Donald Trump’s seawall for a second time in Ireland -- Save The Waves is listing a few of their biggest accomplishments of the year as they reach out to hit a fundraising target.
"In Chile, our win at Punta de Lobos guarantees access to the point forever for surfers, fishermen and beachgoers, while protecting the unique flora and fauna in perpetuity," said Save The Waves. "Our cleanup at Todos Santos engaged local volunteers and removed over three tons of debris from the surfbreak and sensitive island ecosystem. In Ireland, we made a statement about the President’s climate change hypocrisy, generating over 700 letters to stop Trump’s seawall project at Doonbeg."
Save The Waves said the point is protecting the ocean and areas we hold dear are more important now than ever.
"2018 is not going to be an easy year, and our work has already started. We have some ambitious plans, with the goal of raising $50,000 by Dec. 31, 2017 to protect more and more of the coastal places you love. With your help we will continue to grow our Endangered Waves App and Network to give the power to thousands of surfers to protect hundreds of surfspots from development, water quality contamination, and trash and plastic. Together, we’ll protect hundreds of the world’s best surf locations with enhanced legal protection and stewardship through our protected areas work. We’ll educate thousands on key issues as we celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the world’s only surf and environmental film festival."
