11 People With Extraordinary Power Over the Future of One Threatened Species

Why are Woodland Caribou so special?

Woodland Caribou are an iconic species that hold national significance for many Canadians, even being shown on the 25-cent coin.  They have adapted to harsh winter weather, have large hooves that act like snowshoes, and are able to survive largely on lichen – a ground organism made up of fungus and algae. They require large tracts of undisturbed natural forest to survive; and because of this, they are often seen as an indicator species for the health of the entire boreal forest. As logging and other industrial activities have further and further disturbed the forest, Woodland Caribou have been suffering.

Many will not know much about the Woodland Caribou, and only a very few will have seen this animal in person. But this unique member of the deer family, found in Canada’s boreal forest, is a remarkable animal and it is threatened with extinction, while a small group of powerful people have enormous influence over its fate.

This October, governments will decide on whether to establish an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary, the biggest of its kind. Scientists that advise the body responsible for this decision, known as the Antarctic Ocean Commission, held talks this July in Cambridge to discuss the details of this sanctuary.

In response, Greenpeace wanted to make sure that these talks stayed keenly focused on protecting the Antarctic. Together we created a huge geo-dome in Cambridge, showcasing a 360° virtual reality experience of the Antarctic.

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.
