About this app

The Save The Waves Mobile App crowdsources data from coastal users who identify key coastal threats like illegal development, plastic pollution and poor water quality. Using smartphone technology, users snap a photo of the impacted site that is geotagged by the phone’s GPS. This data is shared with on-the-ground practitioners, coastal agencies, and protected area managers in our coalition. With our larger community, we can identify and reduce threats in surf ecosystems across the globe, empowering our local communities to be active stewards in the protection of surf ecosystems.

While I totally support anything that helps keep our oceans clean and protects our precious mother earth...I have been unable to use this app because I don't understand how it works! Which is very updating to me

We're very sorry to hear this Monica. The App has a tutorial that you can access through the information menu, and this video ( also explains how to use it. Just press the '+' button, take a photo of the threat, add a description, location and submit. Reach out to and we will gladly help you.
