About Surfrider Foundation Australia
Surfrider is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of Australia's oceans, waves and beaches for all people through Conservation, Advocacy, Research and Education.
They have 29 Chapters and Beach Representatives nationwide as well as International Affiliates in the USA, Japan, Brazil and Europe, and over 40,000 members worldwide.
Surfrider advocates for the sustainable management and use of the coastal zone, including coastal river catchments and offshore activities. Our opportunities to enjoy the coast: its clean water, its biodiversity and its spectacular landforms, are influenced by the actions of individuals, the aspirations of businesses and the policies of all levels of government.
Surfrider aims to increase awareness of many issues impacting on our enjoyment of the coast, and to ensure that our children have similar opportunities to enjoy it as we have today.
