UNITING PADDLERS AROUND THE WORLD FOR A ONE DAY GLOBAL RELAY EVENT IN AN EFFORT TO RAISE ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS AND GIVE SOMETHING BACK TO OUR OCEANS.
Looking for Summer’s last hurrah? This is it! 🙂
What is Paddle for the Planet?
Paddle for the Planet is a Global Paddling Relay that began in 2011. Paddle for the Planet unites paddlers, creates awareness and is a movement for conservation.
The goal is to have simultaneous paddling events happening sequentially, at a specific time, in every time zone and in each country around the world.
The result will be to unite paddlers of any type of paddling craft through the Global Relay. Think: SUP, kayak, canoe, surfboard etc.
Paddle for the Planet aims to raise awareness and financial support for marine conservation specifically in the area of reserves and “no take zones”.
Paddle for the Planet wants to create an opportunity to make a difference. Often, when faced with the magnitude of environmental issues, a person is left feeling overwhelmed and as if there is nothing that can be done. We want to allow all paddlers the opportunity to help.
