Our mission: Greenpeace is the leading independent campaigning organization that uses peaceful protest and creative communication to expose global environmental problems and promote solutions that are essential to a green and peaceful future.
“We ‘bear witness’ to environmental destruction in a peaceful, non-violent manner. We use non-violent confrontation to raise the level and quality of public debate. In exposing threats to the environment and finding solutions we have no permanent allies or adversaries. We ensure our financial independence from political or commercial interests.”
We will not be silenced:
Greenpeace itself is under a multi-million legal and public relations attack by Resolute Fores Products because we will continue to call for the protection of the Great Northern Forest. Learn more about this case.
The InteriorLeast Tern, once considered rare, may soon be taken off the Endangered Species list, thanks to a partnership of ABC, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS).
The success is in part due to management techniques that keep predators off nesting sandbars on the Lower Mississippi River.
The “little devil,” or Black-capped Petrel, is among the rarest and most secretive seabirds in the Western Hemisphere. Extremehabitat losson their breeding grounds was thought to have driven the bird extinct until its rediscovery in 1963. This species remains in danger ofextinction, with fewer than 2,000 pairs in existence.
These seabirds spend most of their lives in flight over open water, returning to land only to breed. One reason Black-capped Petrels remain little known is that their breeding sites are hidden in the rugged mountains of Hispaniola, the Caribbean island shared by Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

A member of the Corvid family, related to theCommon Ravenand Green Jay, the Blue Jay is intelligent and adaptable — qualities that have helped it learn to successfully co-exist with people.
Blue Jays are known to imitate a variety of other bird species, including theBald EagleandEastern Screech-Owl. This noisy bird also utters a wide variety of squeaks, rattles, and croaks. Compare the Blue Jay’s many calls below.
