The Goat Surf Club Learns About Ireland’s Declining Biodiversity

In episode two of the Goat Surf Club in Ireland, Roo, Thomas, and Ben meet up with the founders of Hometree, an environmental charity based in Ennistymon. Hometree’s mission is to bring natural woodlands back to Ireland.

For the Goat Surf Club, which made its debut with a film series about finding themselves trapped in Morocco during a COVID-19 lockdown, these trips are about more than catching waves; they’re about bringing awareness to environmental issues around the world and promoting stories about those working to preserve the planet. 

Find episode one of this four-part series, filmed by Roo Smith, here. For more information about Hometree or to donate to the organization, go here.
