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 2017, 8,190 volunteers removed 9,352 pounds of debris during beach cleanups in coastal areas of San Diego, capturing it before it could pollute the ocean.
