As we continue to scan the beaches, there are some images that cannot be erased from either our minds or our coasts. That is our fallen sea creatures. Unfortunately, the death of dolphins and other marine life are among the travesties we face daily in Ericeira. However there seems to be an ever growing problem of plastic ingestion in many of these sea creatures. The crude reality is that these travesties are occurring at an exponential rate, and is only continuing to rise because of the lack of environmental reform by Portuguese government. The rooting problems also range from fisherman’s waste to the improper disposal of cosmetics. How long will this continue? One thing we know for certain is that Surfrider Foundation Ericeira will continue to fight for ecological equality.
Join us in the fight by becoming a coastal keeper/volunteer today! #surfridercares #surfrideordie
