Protect and Enjoy: Atlantic Coast

open | July 18 2010

Ocean Protection

The Surfrider Foundation is working to protect special places off the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic coasts through regional ocean planning.

We help represent beach goers in the public process for regional ocean planning and we want to engage you in the campaign! 

Visit our regional websites to signup for email lists & get plugged in to help protect special places along the Atlantic coast before they're threatened!

To learn more about ocean recreation characterization studies the Surfrider Foundation has conducted throughout the U.S., visit our Coastal Recreation Studies page.

Ocean Protection

The Surfrider Foundation works to protect our ocean and address the dangers to it, today and in the future. Our Ocean Protection Initiative includes grassroots campaigns to establish and support Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), oppose new offshore oil drilling and seismic testing, participate in regional ocean planning, and ensure renewable ocean energy does not damage our ocean.
