Wave Energy Statement – Input Needed!

Oregon Chapter is currently working to develop a Statement on Wave Energy in Oregon that can be shared with state agencies, local governments, energy companies, and other interested parties. The statement will communicate the interested role of surfers and other recreational ocean users in local planning efforts, as well as articulate principles that should be applied when evaluating potential projects. The intention is to ensure that local Surfrider members have a strong voice in guiding what happens off their coast. While we all recognize that renewable energy may have tremendous upsides, we need to make sure that projects that move forward happen in the right way, and appropriately address potential impacts to the environment, public safety, ocean recreation, aesthetics etc. The first comment to this post is a draft statement that has been developed through the input of nearly 50 of our members and activists around the state. Please take a moment to review and provide feedback. You may do so through posting additional comments to this blog or emailing direct. Mahalo!

Community Stewardship Area: Port Orford

The Port Orford Ocean Resource Team (POORT) with support from the Surfrider Foundation, Pacific Marine Conservation Council, and Ecotrust is leading an effort to establish a “Community Stewardship Area” on the south coast of Oregon. The goal of the Stewardship Area project is to protect the rich marine ecology of the region while also promoting sustainable fisheries for the local fleet. Development of the Stewardship Area is being facilitated through a local process that involves commercial fishermen and other stakeholders in planning efforts. Parallel to this process, POORT and project partners are working to identify policy space, assemble scientific expertise, and build the necessary support at the state level for such a designation. The Port Orford Ocean Resource Team is a local non-profit that involves commercial fishermen in the science, management, and marketing of its local fishery. Surfrider has been testing water in Port Orford since 2003, and maintains a water quality testing laboratory at Pacific High School in partnership with POORT.
