“In every outthrust headland, in every curving beach, in every grain of sand there is the story of the earth.” -Rachel Carson, Author of Silent Spring
What can I do to
SAVE OUR SHORELINE?
Between land and sea, the beach is the narrow transition point for two enormous ecosystems. Conservation of our beaches is inexorably linked to our actions in both these areas. The beach is an open book where we can plainly see the grave consequences of pollution, over development, and abuse of the sea. The beach is a delicate ecosystem that supports many unique and wonderful creatures who have no where else to go.
Chemicals and fertilizers from
agriculture, industrial waste, garbage, and raw sewage that make it to the ocean can have significant effects on water quality. This pollution is serious because it affects our food chain, the safety of our beaches, animal habitats and ultimately the global ecosystem. With such a huge problem, there’s plenty to do. This month, you can help save our beaches by selecting one of our coast loving CharitySub partners to recieve your $5 subscription.
