On June 8th we celebrated World Oceans Day. A day that means a lot to us, as the Big Blue is literally our office. We want to do everything we can to protect our Oceans, day in and day out.
Knowing that all small gestures help, our LGS team jumped onto the sand at Bondi for a Beach Clean Up. In just over 30min, our bags were filled with rubbish. Surprisingly nothing big, a good sign that the early morning sweeper trucks from the Council work. However, countless items of microplastics were collected, hiding within the soft grains of the sand. A strong sign we need to do better.
Our friends from Australian Marine Conservation Society ran their World Oceans Day campaign to help save our seas. For every dollar donated, it was doubled. We were so stoked to be able to help with your support!
At Lets Go Surfing we were amazed by the generous donations from our guests/clients while booking a surf lesson online. It is heartwarming to see so many of you giving back to the Oceans. Together we were able to donate $3200 to AMCS this World Oceans Day.
With so many other Ocean caring people the funds raised this year allows the AMCS to fight for:
- Reduce pollution
- Fight overfishing
- Protect our habitats
- Improve and support sustainable fishing practices
- Restore degraded habitats
Thank you for your ongoing support, helping us protect our Oceans and wildlife.
