Save The Waves Coalition launched a campaign to prevent US presidential candidate Donald Trump from building a massive seawall in Doughmore Beach, western Ireland.

The controversial businessman wants to build a 2.8-kilometer, 15-foot tall wall in a sensitive coastal dune system to protect his Trump Golf Resort from climate change. The rock barrier will cost 10 million euros (11.2 million dollars) to erect.

“Doughmore Beach is one of western Irelands most consistent beach breaks and widely popular with a deep community of surfers and beachgoers,” explains Nick Mucha, director of programs at Save The Waves Coalition.
