2020 has been a challenging year, but that has not stopped us from our passions and commitments, including raising money for AMCS.
Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS) is the voice for Australia’s ocean wildlife. They are an independent charity who have defended Australia’s oceans for over 50 years.
At Lets Go Surfing, we live, work and play in the ocean, therefore we want to do everything in our power to preserve it.
“As surfers, our life revolves around the ocean. We love the water and our amazing beaches, so it is extremely important that we respect and cherish our environment. We are so lucky to have such caring and passionate environmental warriors on our team who lead us on our ‘leave only footprints’ mission” – Craig “Wacca” Wachholz
LGS and AMCS have been in partnership since 2018, last year we donated $5000, this year however, things looked a little different. Due to the Covid 19 lockdowns and beach closures, our doors were closed from March until the end of May. Then due to border closures we have been operating on a much smaller scale. With all that and the help of our wonderful customers we have still raised a total of $3500!
“The ocean is precious to us and we are lucky to have such an amazing group of caring people learning to surf with our team and supporting this fantastic organization! We’re stoked!” – Brenda Miley LGS Founder and Director
Thank you so much to everyone who donated, it really means a lot.. for the whales, dolphins, fish, coral, turtles, sharks and everything else that lives and depends on our oceans!
