Amigos del Mar
We are a group of volunteers who love where we live, work, and play – in La Herradura and Almuñécar, Costa Tropical, Andalucia. We come from all different backgrounds and professions. The one thing we all have in common is a passion for the sea and our seaside communities.
Together, we are the Asociación Amigos Del Mar Costa Tropical, a registered non-profit marine conservation organisation. We promote marine life awareness through education, workshops and collaborate with other organisations for beach clean-ups, marine restoration and conservation.
Our founder is Anne Zipse, a longtime resident of La Herradura where she started its first-ever Sea Festival in 2013.
What do we do?
We try to tackle environmental challenges locally, through collaboration, community participation, and celebration. We appreciate local history and people. We believe that humans and nature can thrive together. And we love this special place we call home.
We all know about the dire state of the seas, and of the Mediterranean in particular. But we believe everyone can help protect and restore our marine environment… starting at these shores.
Please join us. You are most welcome.
