Standup4Greatbear Society receives Werner Healthy Waters Donation

My Standup4Greatbear Society would like to thank Werner Paddles and their Healthy Waters program for the donation to the Standup4Greatbear Society. The Healthy Waters program donates to those who protect where we paddle and Standup4Greatbear was honoured to be one of the recipients of this years awards. A big thanks goes to Nikki Rekman of Nikki Rekman Sales who nominated the society and who has been a big supporter since it’s inception. We sure do love the Great Bear Rainforest and we will continue to help protect this incredible area and outstanding ecosystem for future generations. The Great Bear is one of the most amazing places to standup paddle board and my week long trips there connect you to a sense of place and will help you to understand how sensitive this ecosystem is and what is at risk.


The Standup4Greatbear Society was born from a 2010 conservation standup paddle with Brian Huntington along the proposed oil tanker route and supported and inspired by the community of Hartley Bay and the Gitga’at people. The society now promotes the education, awareness, and protection of the Great Bear Rainforest through conservation expeditions, featured talks and school presentations. We support environmental, educational and youth related projects in the Great Bear Rainforest.
