Collaborating In the Name of Dune Health

Collaborating In the Name of Dune Health

For the #RipCurlProBellsBeach, WSL is joining Jan Juc Coast Action, Wadawurrung Traditional Owners, Great Ocean Road Coast and Parks Authority, and Surf Coast Shire to support restoration efforts on Wadawurrung Country near Djarrak (Bells Beach) to prevent erosion. Erosion is an issue we are facing along the southern Australia coastline and worldwide. The removal of Coast Tree Tea and Marram Grass, both introduced species to the area, will encourage indigenous species to be reintroduced to our foredune and incipient dune systems to dissipate the energy of the ocean as it moves towards the high tide mark.

As surfers, the ocean is our playground and our stadium. Learning about and restoring coastal ecosystems is important today and for the future of our sport.

Show us what you are doing to protect our one ocean by posting on social media with the hashtag #WSLOneOcean and tagging @WSL and @WSLOneOcean in your posts.
