BENEFITING: SAVE THE WAVES COALITION
This last year was the most impactful year in our history --- From protecting the Gold Coast, Australia’s world class waves at Kirra and Snapper Rocks, to reducing bacteria concentrations at Santa Cruz’s Cowell Beach -- California’s “Dirtiest”, to gathering over 100,000 signatures to stop President-Elect Donald Trump’s Irish seawall-- and these are just a few of our proudest accomplishments of the year. 2017 is not going to be an easy year, and our work to prepare begins now. We have some massive plans to solve some massive challenges facing our coasts. With your help we will launch our Endangered Waves App and Network to give the power to thousands of surfers to protect hundreds of surf spots around the world from water quality contamination, trash and loss of access, and climate-related sea-level rise issues. Together, we’ll grow the World Surfing Reserve program to cover more of the world’s best surf locations with enhanced legal protection and stewardship. We’ll grow our film festival to educate thousands more across the world about the need for conservation of coastlines. Would you be willing to make a special year-end donation of $50, $100 or whatever you can afford to help us meet our 2017 fundraising goal of $50,000?
