Our oceans, rivers, and lakes cover more than 70% of Earth and it’s imperative we take care of them as over three billion people depend on marine and coastal health for their livelihoods. Over-fishing and pollution, human caused problems, continue to wreak havoc on marine ecosystems all over the world. We as a species must come together to fix the problem. Golden Surf is committed to this positive change and we encourage all customers to do their part in any way they can. We are partnered with the The Ocean Foundation, the only global community foundation dedicated to saving oceans around the world. 1% of every purchase will go towards the Ocean Foundation in support of their work.
The Ocean Foundation
The Ocean Foundation's mission is "to support, strengthen and promote those organizations dedicated to reversing the trend of destruction of ocean environments around the world." Utilizing an international advisory of scientists and policy makers, the experience and passion behind their work is very real. They work to serve partners who are passionate like them about the oceans, and they raise millions of dollars each year from governments, individuals, and corporate donors who also believe in the necessity for healthy and protected oceans.
Other conservation projects we support:
