Dude: Surfers take action!

A former surfer sent this to me. “We [Surf Riders] used to take water samples every day” to help monitor the water conditions.”  Read how the citizen science volunteers at Surfrider Foundation organized to tacklecoastal problems ranging from water quality, to wetlands protection, to fights against shoreline armoring and protection of surfing areas. Their vision:  achieve 150 Coastal Victories by 2010.  A ‘Coastal Victory’ is defined as a decision made in favor of the coastal and ocean environment that results in a positive conservation outcome, improves coastal access, or both.   Learn about 106 of these victories

    Darlene,

    Bravo! Keep up the good work. There are times the news makes me think that science has died in the US. Hopefully with a new administration in Washington the anti-science ideologues will no longer be eating away at our damaged education system. Keep up your efforts young people like you can and do make a difference.
