Goal
The Surfrider Foundation is heavily engaged in Regional Ocean Planning efforts in the Northeast. Our goal is to be proactive in protecting the ocean ecosystem and recreational areas along our coasts, before they're threatened. We're currently advocating for specific actions to be included in the ocean action plan.

We're providing recommendations for how agencies can best engage stakeholders and use the recreation data Surfrider helped provide as part of a suite of studies aimed at characterizing human uses of New England's coast and ocean.
