It Is Time To Paddle For The Planet And We Need Your Help…
Paddle for the Planet is a Global Paddling Relay.
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.
Paddle for the Planet aims to raise awareness and financial support for marine conservation specifically in the area of marine 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.
Paddle for the Planet will raise money through donations in the following way:
- Through the website
- On the day of the Paddle
- Corporately through partnerships
(In 2011 we raised enough funds to help towards the Raja Ampat Reserve purchase of a new patrol boat.)
