Our passionate Rise Above Plastics lead and Monthly Beach Clean-up program Director made the Surfrider Foundation Chapter Currents news December 2014 Volunteer Spotlight. The Chapter Currents is a monthly e-newsletter with important news and updates for Surfrider Foundation chapter activists.
With more than 20 years’ experience working to protect the coast, Dr. Chad Nelsen has spent the last 16 with the Surfrider Foundation as our Environmental Director. He has been a prominent voice in the environmental community and an instrumental part of hundreds of Surfrider coastal victories, leading countless high-impact campaigns. This is extremely exciting news for the organization. Under Chad’s leadership, we will move toward strengthening our activist network, adopting a more proactive approach to the issues facing our oceans, waves and beaches, while addressing the looming threat of climate change.
