Toxic Sludge Fills the Animas River
August 17, 2015

What the Animas River spill can teach us – Protecting our treasured rivers in Southwest OR

The recent spill of toxic mine waste into the Animas River in Colorado has elevated the threats of mining to our precious rivers to the forefront of national news, perhaps a silver lining to the tragedy. Aside from the extraordinary conservation values of our rivers, the spill may be one of the most powerful arguments in our communities against the proposed nickel mines in Southwest Oregon. See bottom of post for ways to engage and info on September 9th public meeting in Gold Beach.

Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia: What to do?

Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia (deoxygenation) are increasingly becoming hot topics on the ocean conservation scene. Like many climate change impacts, we’re just beginning to understand how these threats may, and already are, impacting our way of life and that of our ocean environment. Decision-makers and resource managers are quickly approaching necessary action to lessen our impact and adapt to these changes, but where does one start? The West Coast Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia Science Panel has recently published Multiple Stressor Considerations, a new report that highlights these stressors and the need for coordinated action by natural resource, water and air managers and policy-makers.

HB 2463 Passes – Victory for Clean Rivers and Beaches!

Victory on HB 2463, our marine debris prevention bill! This is a great step in establishing a Submerged Land Enhancement Fund and prescribing authority for removal of priority derelict structures and marine debris on our inland waterways and estuaries. A big thank you to all that supported this effort, from it’s inception in Coos Bay from documentation and stewardship actions at Lighthouse Beach to folks from the Newport Chapter coming to Salem to visit with Representative Gomberg…we even got to help author Oregon’s first statutory definition of marine debris!

Update: VICTORY in Pacific City

The decision is in on the Pacific City “Navigational Safety Zone”

We are STOKED to announce that today (June 24th, 2015)  the Oregon State Marine Board (OSMB) voted unanimously to deny the petition to create a “navigational safety zone” and exclude surfers from some of the best waves on the North Coast! This is a major victory for recreational access at Cape Kiwanda!

A major factor in turning this decision in our favor was the massive groundswell of support that everyone provided through your petition signatures and hand-written letters. Surfrider’s ability to influence decisions like this is only as strong as your support, we couldn’t have done this without YOU!
