Oyster Restoration Activation Helps Safeguard Our Coasts
For the Vans US Open of Surfing, WSL and Shiseido teamed up with #WeAreOneOcean coalition partner Orange County Coastkeeper to support their Olympia oyster restoration work alongside WSL PURE grantee Native Like Water. Olympia oysters are the only native oysters on the west coast, and these restoration projects are having a direct impact on local bays throughout Southern California. As key ecosystems, oysters do so much for our environment, like helping to stabilize our shorelines and filter our waters. At this activation event, volunteers created plantable shell strings in order to restore habitats for oysters in the region and create a home base for the oysters to return to. This important work will benefit the long term health of our waters and safeguard a clean future for our one ocean.
