Rescue of an entangled seagull [video]

Story by Amber Jones – I went for a morning kayak with my daughter and friends of ours. We had a wonderful kayak out of the Santa Cruz Harbor to Seal Rock and back. On our way back in the harbor, we came across a seagull that proceeded to follow us as we kayaked passed him. This isn’t typical behavior for a seagull, so we turned around to get a closer look.

Save Our Surf Campaign – 19 Years Of Supporting Clean Water and Beaches

One of Santa Cruz County’s longest-running corporate/environmental partnerships kicked off over Memorial Day weekend, with the launching of the 19th annual Save Our Surf campaign.

Through Save Our Surf, the Santa Cruz Chapter of Surfrider Foundation received a pledge from Couch Distributing to donate a percentage of sales from Bud Light, Bud Light Platinum and Budweiser between Memorial Day and Labor Day. The fund-raising partnership was started in 1996 and has raised at least $10,000 a year for the local environmental nonprofit group each year ever since.
