Clean water is vital for the health of our beaches, ocean, and the people that enjoy it, but it's constantly under threat from polluted run-off.

"I'm a Surfrider coastal defender because my experiences on, in, and near the water inspire me to do my part to preserve it. Surfrider’s variety of programs and campaigns are, I think, its strength since volunteers can connect with the coastal issues they are most passionate about, and that effort is what’s needed to address the complex issues affecting coastal preservation." - Russ Redman,...

Today may be St. Patrick’s Day, but this water is not supposed to be green. This bright green water is caused by massive algal blooms and is bad news for Florida’s estuaries and coastlines. Last summer beaches were shut down due to massive algal blooms and polluted discharges pumped out of Lake Okeechobee and into the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee estuaries.

Beaches are the entryway to our ocean. But from locked gates like Martin's Beach, to restricted hours, exclusive developments and economic barriers, these threats all limit access to public beaches.

While the Tijuana River is notorious for trash and waste water pollution, this was by far the largest raw sewage spill into the Tijuana River in over a decade. The spill polluted beaches from Rosarito, MX...

This is exactly why a group of dedicated students gave up their lunch period on Wednesday to go out and collect water samples at two Santa Monica beaches. Santa Monica and Pacific Palisades HS have been conducting water quality tests at both schools for the past eight...
