In late October 2011, leaders and representatives of coastal conservation NGOs and universities from around the world descended on the picturesque cities of Biarritz and San Sebastian for the first ever Global Wave Conference (GWC). Zach Plopper considers the event and its implications.
In the ongoing effort to save one of the world’s most important marine parks, Cabo Pulmo in southern Baja, WiLDCOAST and conservationists in Mexico were shocked to learn that scandalous emails were exchanged between Mexican federal authorities and the company working to develop the Cabo Cortes mega-resort near Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park.
On October 16th, 2011 WiLDCOAST will hold the 8th AnnualDempsey Holder Ocean Festival and Surf Contest in Imperial Beach, California from 7am-3pm at the Imperial Beach Pier.
