With nearly 70 miles of coastline to protect, our chapter is one of the largest and most active in the world. We are a grassroots organization, which means the people working to protect our local oceans, waves and beaches are volunteers who care about San Diego and want to make a difference.
WHAT WE DO
Protect & Enjoy
We ensure clean water, healthy ocean and coastlines and accessible beaches for all to enjoy by finding lasting solutions to the threats our ocean faces.
In 2015, 7,360 volunteers removed 9,825 pounds of debris during beach cleanups in coastal areas of San Diego, capturing it before it could pollute the ocean.
