World Environmental Day 2013: UAE Dolphin Project joins the Paddle for the Planet

Last weekend the UAE Dolphin project was in the spotlight with its stand at theIMG_4737 annual Paddle for the Planet event held on Kite Surf Beach in Dubai to mark World Environment Day.

The event sees hundreds of paddlers take to the water to show their solidarity in protecting the environment in a global relay started in New Zealand an involving countries all around the world.  In Dubai over seven hundred crafts, from surfskis, kayaks, stand up paddles, outriggers, surf boards children from the Pirates Surf Rescue Team, paddled out early in the morning. Well done everybody!

Following the event the UAE Dolphin Project stand was visited by many participants and was used as the back drop by the television for their interviews with the organisers of the event. Check our photo gallery on the project facebook page!
