Founded by Bay of Life Surf School and Ocean Literacy, the Foundation strives to conserve the Ocean through research, education and sports.
With a team of Environmentalists, Architects, Engineers, Geologists, Herpetologists and Zoologists, Bay of Life Foundation fights to conserve our oceans for our future generations by inspiring a personal connection to the environment and help develop the actions to sustain it.
The Foundation is a spin-off from Bay of Life. We are funding the conservation activities from the profits of Bay of Life Surf School. After 5 years, we have established a separate NGO for better governance and scalability of the activities to achieve sustainability. The surf school continues to support the foundation.
3000+ Children have been educated on environments issues, effects of trash management and water pollution. The program is a great success as schools find it more meaningful to bring children to Bay of Life than taking them to a theme park.
Over the last 5 years, we have cleared over 12 tons of trash through coordinated mass cleanups and daily cleanup by employing local women on monthly wages, providing employment opportunities and leaving behind a cleaner beach. The efforts that go into keeping our beaches clean have reduced the number of turtle mortalities that occur due to excess debris on the shore.
