GREENPEACE

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.”
Annie Leonard, Greenpeace USA Executive Director

Our vision

Fossil fuel companies will fight tooth and nail to keep us locked to the path that gives them a few more years of profit – the path that sends us careening off a cliff. We must fight equally hard – harder – to grab the opportunity to take control of our own destiny. It may be our last chance.

We are the ones we have been waiting for. We are the generation that goes beyond coal and oil.

Hundreds of bird species are on a track toward extinction. If these species blink out, we’ll have just one species to blame: ours — SUNSETS — PLANET EARTH REFLECTIONS group

PLANET EARTH REFLECTIONS has over 2,400 members and over 50,000 photos and videos.

With our Brazilian partner, Aquasis, we created the first-ever bird reserves for the critically endangered Araripe Manakin (shown), a six-inch bird only discovered in 1996 that numbers fewer than 800 individuals and survives in the smallest of areas—11 square miles—in northeastern Brazil. 

Rio Canande Reserve, managed by our partner Fundación Jocotoco, protects more than 6,100 acres of forest in the highly threatened Chocó region of northwestern Ecuador. About 25 percent of the species found in this region are found nowhere else on Earth

Mondelez is one of the world’s largest buyers of palm oil, which it uses in many of its best-known products, including Cadbury chocolate bars, Oreo cookies and Ritz crackers.

Tell Oreo to stop buying palm oil from rainforest destroyers. Tell them to drop Wilmar.

Rohingya refugee emergency at a glance.

Approximately 671,000 Rohingya refugees have fled targeted violence and serious human rights violations in Myanmar since August 2017. Many walked for days through the forest to reach safety in Bangladesh.

Six months on, the monsoon season is approaching and the risk of an emergency within the emergency is still looming. UNHCR, the Government of Bangladesh, and partners continue to work around the clock to provide protection and assistance to refugees, while also supporting host populations affected by the influx.

BIRD OF THE WEEK

PINE SISKIN

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Spinus pinus 
POPULATION: 35 million
TREND: Decreasing
HABITAT: Coniferous and mixed forests, alder thickets, and brushy pastures.

The streaky brown Pine Siskin is a “goldfinch in disguise,” with only touches of the bright yellow plumage worn by its close relatives, the American Goldfinch and Brazil’s Yellow-faced Siskin. 

This species is one of the most common of the “winter finches,” a group of birds such as the Evening Grosbeak that sometimes wander far south of their usual wintering grounds.
