SHEP Campaign Update

We are still monitoring the Savannah Harbor Expansion Project (SHEP). Is Tybee Beach safe from the SHEP dredge materials? Please review our latest Statement on the Revised Environmental Impact Statement. Our STOP SHEP Campaign Page has other updates.

Wavemaker Award

Atlanta Chapter Chairperson Steve Combs was designated a 2012 Wavemaker by the Board of Directors of Surfrider Foundation. This annual awards ceremony honors individuals and companies for their outstanding volunteer efforts and support during the previous year to help the Foundation fulfill its mission of protecting oceans, waves and beaches. This year’s ceremony will be in Dana Point on February 23, 2013. We are stoked to get this kind of national recognition.
