What is Panda Paddle?
Panda Paddle is World Wildlife Fund’s one-of-a-kind standup paddle board (SUP) event—helping to conserve and restore our planet. When you take part in Panda Paddle, you’ll join together with hundreds of people all around the country who are standing up for our world’s waters, wildlife, and wild places.
It’s more than just a chance to paddle with your friends, family, and coworkers out on your favorite waterways, it’s an opportunity to fundraise in support of WWF’s efforts to protect the future of nature.
Don’t miss your chance to take a stand. Our oceans need you. Register today.
How much does it cost?
The registration fee for Panda Paddle is $65. There is no fundraising minimum to participate, but every dollar you raise will help protect our planet. Plus you can earn some great items as a thank you for taking a stand for nature. Sign up today!
