The Surfrider Foundation Australia exists to protect Australia's oceans, waves and beaches. This is conducted through our national network of Surfrider branches. Surfrider focusses on C.A.R.E.(Conservation, Activism, Research and Education) to ensure the health of our water ways. Two of our major campaigns are:
Rise Above Plastics - educating communities to reduce single-use plastic
- encouraging industry to stop producing and utilising single-use plastic
- rallying politicians to create policies to support alternatives to single-use plastic
Endangered Waves - Highlights the many threats endangering coastal environments like poor planning and infrastructure developments, polluted waterways from sewage or stormwater outfalls and
inappropriate breakwalls, seawalls and dredging.
