Paddle for the Planet

What is Paddle for the Planet?

Paddle for the Planet is a movement that unites paddlers and watermen for conservation. Our signature event is the Global Paddling Relay.

The relay runs with simultaneous paddling events starting sequentially, on the same day, at the same time, in every time zone, in each country around the world thereby creating a global relay. Paddlers of any type of paddling craft are united through the Global Relay.

Paddle for the Planet aims to raise awareness and financial support for marine conservation specifically in “Marine Protected Areas” and “no take zones”.

Paddle for the Planet want creates 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 raises money through donations in the following ways:

Through the website –
On the day of the Paddle
Corporately through partnerships

The paddle is going to be 10km and if you would like to be involved you can find out where your closest paddle will be on the P4P facebook page and donate on the day, donate online or just spread the word.
