Proposed Paddling ban in French Pyrenees

It’s recently come to be public knowledge that the Authority for the French Pyrenees national park is consulting on an order to ban whitewater paddling (among a whole range of other sports) within the park. The Pyrenees is a whitewater paddling destination for paddlers all over Europe, and in particular in the UK.

The order to ban the paddling was hardly publicised – local paddlers only got wind of it today (the 22nd of April). To object to the proposed regulations, you need to email the address at the following link within the next two days: http://www.pyrenees-parcnational.fr/fr/consultations-publiques/reglementation-activites
