SURFRIDER FOUNDATION FILES SUIT AGAINST SAN DIEGO REGIONAL WATER QUALITY CONTROL BOARD

04.23.10

Surfrider Foundation filed a lawsuit yesterday against the San Diego Regional Water Quality Control Board challenging a permit allowing Poseidon Resources to withdraw 300 million gallons of seawater per day for the proposed Carlsbad ocean desalination plant. The complaint alleges that the proposed desalination facility must strictly comply with the California Water Code to minimize the intake and mortality of marine life.

SURFRIDER FOUNDATION OPPOSES PRESIDENT OBAMA’s NEW OFFSHORE DRILLING AND EXPLORATION PLAN

03.31.10

"The Surfrider Foundation considers anything short of a complete reinstatement of the federal moratorium on offshore oil drilling a loss. While we are pleased that the coastal waters off the west coast will not see any new offshore oil drilling (for the time being), we view this as simply maintaining the status quo that has been afforded us for the last 30 years. By opening up the mid-Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and north coast of Alaska to new offshore oil drilling and exploration, the Minerals Management Service not only places our environment at risk, it threatens the livelihoods of millions of Americans who rely on clean, healthy, oil-free oceans and beaches to support fishing, tourism and other industries."

BORDERS PERRIN NORRANDER RISE ABOVE PLASTICS WITH NEW SURFRIDER FOUNDATION PSA

03.08.10

Portland-based creative agency Borders Perrin Norrander (bpn) recently launched the Surfrider Foundation Public Service Announcement (PSA) Rise Above Plastics for international use. The digital spot features a whale swimming through a sea of plastic pollution desperate to reach the open surface. The whale soon becomes completely coated with plastic debris as he breaches through a floating bed of plastic bottles, bags, and soda rings, where he remains beached. The camera then widens to an aerial view and we see the extent of the floating island of plastic.
