The Kiama protest is the latest in a series of events nationwide.

Protesters held a ring formation minute's silence to honour the ocean and its damaged species.

A similar paddle-out was held at Mollymook the week before and  South Coast Boardrider, Chris Homer says another one could be planned in the immediate future.
