In preparation for the #OurOcean conference to be held in Malta on 5 and 6 October, the European Commission's Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries organized a beach cleanup in Belgium to retrieve waste from the North Sea next to Surfrider.
With the Keepers of the Coast program, citizens are taking action to preserve the coastline. Surfrider frequently gives you the opportunity to review Keepers of the Coasts’ current battles. From French Vendée to Peniche, Portugal, including Doughmore bay, Ireland, we shall review 3 battles we haven’t yet heard the last of.
“plastic bottles are a major burden not only for the environment but also for our health”
Surfrider’s core mission is to give everyone the opportunity to take action and mobilise for the protection of the coastline and the oceans.
