CLOSE THE LAST COASTAL SAND MINE FILM SCREENING
Surfrider features documentary about the illegal sand mine in Marina, CA
We have a problem – 700 million pounds of sand are illegally mined from the Monterey Bay Sanctuary every year. It’s mined by the Lapis Lustre Sand Mine. The six-decade-old plant is located on the beach in Marina, California and is currently operated by CEMEX, an international building material powerhouse. CEMEX dredges sand from a large man-made pond on the beach, taking sand that would otherwise build our beaches and coastline.
View a short documentary film on the CEMEX sand mine, made by Ed Schehl along with our friends at Save Our Shores, and join us for a panel discussion of local activists and scientists on how we continue the fight against this single biggest cause of erosion in our coast.
