As seen in the new film "The Fisherman’s Son", Save The Waves has been working with Ramón Navarro and local community activists at Punta de Lobos to preserve and protect the unique coastline of one of Chile’s most iconic surf spots. Help protect Punta de Lobos by donating to the campaign #LobosPorSiempre.
Save The Waves protects coastal ecosystems around the world in partnership with local communities, utilizing a unique combination of protected areas, economics, and direct action.
Through our World Surfing Reserves program we protect amazing surf spots and coastlines, by working on long-term conservation through outreach, planning and community capacity building.
Through Surfonomics we determine the economic value of a wave and surfing to local communities to help decision makers make choices to protect the value of their coast and waves.
When an epic wave or coastline is under threat from poorly planned development or pollution, we mount campaigns to educate the public and take direct action through our Endangered Waves and Branded Campaigns.
