Ramón, the son of a subsistence fisherman, turned his platform as a surfer into a campaign to protect a place critical to his sport and near to his heart. “I want to protect this place for the fisherman and surfers who live there now and for the generations to come" said Navarro.
With leadership from Navarro and support from Save The Waves, local Chileans have so far held back the tide of development around Punta de Lobos that would transform the point – impacting surf culture, hurting the local fishing trade and devastating the environment. But the area remains under serious threat.
Donate money to help the campaign here. 100% of crowd sourced funding and t-shirt sales go directly to preserve and protect Punta de Lobos, including the development of a conservation master plan and foundation to protect the point.
