Space Coast Chapter
Our MissionWhere the land meets the sea
What We Fight For
Reducing the impact of plastics in the marine environments that surround us.
Defending our oceans from challenges threatening the vitality of the ecosystem.
Working with decision-makers to ensure full and fair beach access for all to enjoy.
Coast & Climate
Taking on issues that threaten our beaches and natural shorelines.
Protecting the health and sustainability of our planet's most precious resource.
The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves and beaches, for all people, through a powerful activist network.
Ban Butts from Our Beaches
Surfrider has long advocated for banning smoking on beaches and parks. Under the new Florida law (HB105 Regulation of Smoking by Counties and Municipalities), counties and municipalities are authorized to restrict smoking within the boundaries of public beaches and parks.
Surfrider’s Space Coast chapter supports local municipal efforts to enact smoking bans to help reduce cigarette butt litter and prevent its harmful effects to our marine life and waters. We are reaching out to our local municipalities to influence their decisions for passing an ordinance.
Blue Water Task Force (BWTF)
The Blue Water Task Force (BWTF) is a collaborative program that provides critical, year-round water quality information at ocean and intracoastal recreational locations to protect public health at the beaches. Our chapter along with Marine Resources Council (MRC) tests for bacteria levels to raise awareness of our local pollution problems and to bring together communities to implement solutions.
