Coastal conservation: the Blue Flag breakdown
In this episode of the Going Coastal Podcast, we discuss the ASBPA Blue Flag Award Program with Annie Mercer, program coordinator for ASBPA, and Porsche Nauls, Departmental Facilities Planner II LA County Department of Beaches and Harbors, and one of the two Blue Flag award winners this year.
The Blue Flag Award is an international eco-label awarded to beaches, marinas, and water sports facilities that meet a set of environmental, educational, and safety standards. The program is designed to promote sustainable practices and raise awareness of the importance of protecting coastal resources.
In this episode, Annie and Porsche discuss the benefits of participating in the Blue Flag Award Program, the challenges of achieving award status, and the importance of protecting coastal resources. They also share their personal experiences with the program and offer advice to students and young professionals who are interested in pursuing a career in coastal management.
This episode is a great resource for anyone who is interested in learning more about the ASBPA Blue Flag Award Program or who is passionate about protecting coastal resources.
