The Eurobodalla Branch of Surfrider Foundation Australia began in Moruya in January 2014. The branch covers the coastline from Durras to Narooma on the far south coast of New South Wales and includes several world-class beach-breaks and reefs. Our main goals are to protect access to surf breaks, ensure that development does not impact on the surf zone, and restore degraded headlands and beaches. The branch arranges beach clean days and collaborates with other community groups and local government to prevent beach pollution and initiate beach conservation activities. To participate in our activities and learn more about what we do, contact the branch leader Allen Grimwood on 0408 258 877 or firstname.lastname@example.org
In June 2016, CSIRO, Tangaroa Blue and Bush Blitz, along with Surfrider and other environmental organisations, embarked on a 12-day journey to tackle marine debris and to collect research on the species that inhabit the Coral Sea Commonwealth Marine Reserve. In just 12 days, over 2.2 tonnes of rubbish was removed from the remote islands of the Great Coral Sea.
