Our commitment

Together we – Keepers of the Coast – act to protect our playgrounds. As a collective we take back control by forming a tight worldwide community consisting of members, experts and volunteers in action.

 

SURFRIDER FOUNDATION

We can’t give up and have our next generation not know how beautiful the sea once used to be. Our coasts are under severe pressure from human impacts. Marine litter dumps, chemical and bacterial pollution and inappropriate developments have been occurring for way too long and that’s why in 1992 Surfrider Foundation Europe launched this movement to respond to urgent threats.

 

WHAT WE HAVE DONE

So far our work, balanced between consultation and local action, has made numerous wins. But, every day we are facing new challenges that are taken up by thousands of small organisations, communities and individuals ready to take action against coastline and ocean degradation. They need support! We are stronger together, by joining the Keepers of the Coast, we’ll form a united network fighting for the same cause.

 

WANT TO BECOME A KEEPER OF THE COAST?

Welcome! We are so glad you want to save the coasts too. There are different ways you can help out by becoming one of our members, experts and by taking direct action – this powerful combination is the strength of our community. But most importantly, we need insight. If you see coastline that needs saving, report it to us for expert analysis and we can start taking action.
