Fuerza Chile! UNITED FOR CLEAN WATER
We are all connected by the ocean and united in its defense. As part of Save The Waves’ work to preserve the surfing coastline, we are implementing the next phase of work to protect the coast and ocean in south central Chile. This campaign, entering its third year, is called “Fuerza Chile! United for Clean Water,” and focuses on building the capacity of communities and local organizations to serve as the stewards of coastal and marine resources.
We are working with our Chilean partners, including the Maule Itata Coastkeeper, to hold multiple beach cleanups on March 22, 2014 from 10am – 2pm in Pichilemu, Punta de Lobos, Constitucion, Curanipe and Cobquecura simultaneously. The purpose is to conduct a large-scale cleanup of beaches and rivers in each location, conduct water quality testing, and also to engage community members in the important work of stewardship and advocacy to protect the coast and ocean.
