Surfrider Foundation CEO Address from Dr. Chad Nelsen
In these challenging times, I would like to thank our amazing network and supporters for their dedication to protecting our ocean, waves and beaches. Like all of you, we are rapidly adjusting to a world where we are working from our homes, side by side with our families and pets.
During this time, it’s important to remember that Surfrider is more than a coastal conservation organization, we are a community of people who care for the coast and each other. So we are mobilizing our network to support each other while still focusing on ocean and coastal protection.
The best thing you can do right now is stay home, and when out practice social distancing. We love the beach and surfing as much as anyone but we have seen beach closures around the country and the world due to overcrowding, so please stay local, honor closures, and avoid crowded public spaces. This is all part of helping us get back to the beach as soon as possible.
