They are how we protect our special coastal places, ensure our ocean is healthy and wild, keep pollution out of the water and make sure every beach is clean and accessible for all to enjoy. When we win a campaign, it’s called a victory. Surfrider defines a victory as a decision by a governing body that protects the coastal and ocean environment, improves coastal access, or both.
