Save The Waves is proud to reflect on our most memorable moments of 2020! These milestones spanned across the globe, were achieved in collaboration with local Coalition partners and often took several years of hard, diligent work to accomplish.
Despite the hardships and curveballs of 2020, Save The Waves Coalition is proud to report an impactful year. Our team rose to the challenge to achieve historic milestones for surf conservation and scale our work across the globe.
A WSR is more than a designation. Playa Hermosa begins to work towards its vision for the protection of its surf ecosystem.
Considering the damage and impact, the Local Stewardship Council of the 9th WSR stated that intervention at the mouth of Rio da Madre is necessary.
Save The Waves is pleased to announce that Playa Hermosa, Garabito, Costa Rica has officially been approved as the next World Surfing Reserve – the first WSR in Central America.
The Sanctuary encourages the protection of over 10,000 acres located on the central coast of Chile, including Topocalma and Puertocillo.
Last year, we launched the Salvemos Punta Conejo campaign and have been working diligently ever since. We know that once a natural phenomenon like Punta Conejo is altered by industry, it is forever lost. We won’t let this gem go down without a fight.
For the first time in 10 years, Cowells was not included on the annual “Beach Bummer” list – showing major improvement for the Santa Cruz beach.
We believe it is important to speak out, leverage our platform, and reaffirm to our followers and our community the things we stand for, especially when the times around us are difficult.
