Help Us Protect Your Beach and Break
The Mid-Atlantic Regional Ocean Planning Body (RPB) has been working for three years on a draft plan to better manage our ocean and beaches. Surfrider has been involved the entire time, pushing this group of government officials to put stronger protections for ocean ecosystems and non-consumptive recreation into the draft plan.
Take two minutes and tell them that you support strong protections for our ocean and beaches–click here: http://go.surfrider.org/MidAOceanPlan
Thank you! The Mid-Atlantic RPB has been responsive to our requests, so your action helps a lot! They are taking comments until September 6.
