The Seismic Airgun Testing Public Forum, held at the Brannon Center in New Smyrna Beach on December 5, 2013, was a great success! We had around 30 in attendance to hear speakers from Oceana, Fins and Fluke and Surfrider Foundation speak about the dangers of Seismic Airgun Testing. We obtained signatures for our opposition petition to the Secretary of the Interior from everyone there and it was a great night of discussion and education fueled by donated Starbucks coffee and pastries.

The next evening was our end of year Beach Bonfire Social and we had about 20 Surfrider members, volunteers and friends join us for s’mores and fun in New Smyrna Beach at the Sapphire fire pit. It was nice to sit back and relax and remember that our mission is not only about protecting our beaches, waves and oceans but also enjoying them!

Next year we aim to increase our impact by engaging more volunteers, holding more events like beach clean ups and Ocean Friendly Garden projects and fundraising to aid our efforts. We are truly a grassroots organization and this means that we cannot do any of what we do without YOU!
