Become A Volunteer Today

Join our network and help us tackle the issues that face our ocean, waves, and beaches!



Our programs are made up and led by volunteers passionate about protecting our ocean. There, chapter volunteers serve as the first response to local threats. They are the boots on the ground who collaborate locally and nationally with staff and issue experts to carry out our mission through campaigns, programs, and educational initiatives.
