Kayaktivism, a portmanteau of kayak and activism, is a method of protest which relies on the use of kayaks or other watercrafts to construct flotillas. Kayaktivism has been linked to the environmental movement, and has been used to draw attention to environmental issues both onshore and offshore including fracking, climate change, and water pollution. Kayaktivists have been known to target export sites and terminals for fossil fuels, as well as offshore drilling sites, specifically by blocking boats and barges from their routes or forcing them to make detours.
