Stopped Seawall Construction at La Paloma/La Parena


State: --
Country: Argentina
Theme: Coastal
Completion Date: September 02 2009
Status: Victory

Two pocket beaches with high-quality surf spots, at La Paloma and La Parena, were threatened with construction of massive seawalls in an attempt to protect a regional road. Surfrider Argentina partnered with local coastal scientists to demonstrate that construction of the seawalls was unnecessary and would have serious negative impacts on the beach and adjacent waves.
