From capping leaking oil-wells to Styrofoam recycling and cleanup orders, HTO is a non- profit organization that fights for a cleaner Ocean for all. Heal the Ocean focuses on wastewater infrastructure  - sewers and septic systems - as well as Ocean dumping practices that have contributed to Ocean pollution. We are focused on Santa Barbara County, but our methods are now serving as a model for other coastal communities across the country.

Surfrider works to keep the oceans in Santa Barbara and the surrounding community clean by doing clean ups, working with restaurants to make them more sustainable, informing the community on how to be more environmentally friendly, weekly ocean water testing, and raising money for resources that make being environmentally friendly in Santa Barbara easier.

The Surf Happens Foundation raises funds to provide scholarships and free surf programs to deserving youngsters in partnership with Surf Happens Surf School. Improving lives by sharing the joy of surfing and inspiring ocean stewardship. We strive to build a natural connection to the sea for every person we teach - and we create the foundation for a healthy lifestyle. We believe human beings must be stewards of our environment and we our students to respect and protect our natural resources.
