Our support for this organization is multifaceted. For starters, John Heidel is an avid surfer, and while he’s out riding waves, he sees firsthand the concerning amount of garbage the collects in our ocean. The Heidels are also huge animal lovers and together, they share a passion for keeping ocean waters clean so its animals—like sea turtles, whales, and dolphins—can thrive. And as Christians, they believe in being good stewards of the earth.
The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to protecting the world’s ocean, waves, and beaches. The foundation has built a network of local defenders and national experts in law, policy and science who are able to provide lasting protection to our coasts. Their vision is to protect 100% of the coastlines we love, both now and for future generations to come.
