Blue Water Task Force
The Blue Water Task Force is the Surfrider Foundation’s volunteer-run water testing education and advocacy program. The goals of the program are to promote environmental stewardship our community and ensure safe and healthy access to coastal habitats for generations to come.
Combing The Coast
Since its inception, the Vancouver Island Chapter of Surfrider Foundation has been holding monthly beach cleanups at different locations around the south island. Beach cleanups are a fun and exciting way of getting volunteers and community members out to a local beach and participating in a meaningful activity.
Rise Above Plastics
Most plastic pollution at sea starts out on land as litter on beaches, streets and sidewalks. Rain or overwatering flushes that litter through a storm drain system or directly to creeks, streams and rivers that lead to the ocean.
Ocean Friendly Businesses
Surfrider Vancouver Island has partnered with the Vancouver Island Green Businesses Certification (VIGBC) program to launch a campaign that links businesses to responsible actions that will help keep our local beaches and waterways clean.
