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.
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.
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.
The Space Coast Surfrider team has come together and we are very excited for this year. Come out and join us in the fun and let's make an impact for healthy and safe oceans and beaches!
