As part of its We Are One Ocean initiative at the Quiksilver/ROXY Pro G-Land, WSL, Filipe Toledo, Tatiana Weston-Webb and partners joined forces with local organizations to conserve the vital ecosystems around the event location. The goal of the season-long WSL #weareoneocean initiative is to inspire the global surf community to protect the global ocean and preserve the future of our sport. To put this into action, we focus on three main pillars, all of which are being supported around the event in East Java:
- Together with Alas Purwo National Park, the Surf Conservation Partnership and Konservasi Indonesia, WSL and Shiseido are giving back to the local community in G-Land by helping to restore its vibrant coastline.
- By teaming up with SeaTrees, Quiksilver and ROXY are further protecting this surf ecosystem and working with local communities to reverse the effects of climate change by restoring damaged coral reef ecosystems.
- Alongside Sungai Watch, Corona is reducing plastic pollution in Indonesia by focusing on cleaning up its rivers, where over 80% of ocean plastic originates.
- Quiksilver is also supporting Sungai Watch by donating a portion of all G-Land merchandise sales to the organization to clean up plastic that has accumulated along the coastline in Alas Purwo National Park.
