Surf and the Simpsons

Description

California is one of the top surf locations in the world and also home to Universal Studios. This programme focuses on the protection of the coastline and Universals Studios' initiatives to become environmentally friendly.

Threats to California's coastline have presented new challenges to surfers, and they have responded by developing their own foundation to sustain the coastline.

The Surfrider Foundation was set up 25 years ago and now has almost 60,000 activists and volunteers across the United States, with 80 chapters across the world.

Meanwhile on an average summer's day 30,000 visitors take tours of the Universal Studio sets and enjoy rides on themed attractions in the park.

Alongside its mission to entertain, Universal has recently adopted a number of measures to become more environmentally friendly, including cleaner, greener rides, like the new Simpsons ride.
