The Golden-winged Warbler is a dynamo, practically buzzing with activity as it moves through the trees. It also undertakes an amazing migration, traveling from its breeding grounds in the northeastern United States to wintering areas in Central and South America.

Minnesota's northern forests are home to nearly 50 percent of the world's Golden-winged Warbler population during the summer breeding season. Photo by Greg Lavaty

The species is notable for another reason: It has suffered one of the steepest population declines of any songbird. Since 1966, the species has been reduced by 66 percent, mostly because of habitat loss on its breeding grounds.

Our Food, Our Future

There is a better system. Scientific progress means that positive change is possible. Ecological farming re-connects people with food through farmers, using science to enhance and sustain biodiversity and its healthier harvests. While industrial farming ignores the drastic consequences of climate change and adds to them, ecological farming works with a world in a state of flux, and always with the future in mind.

Today, progressive ecological techniques, together with individual daily choices empower us to farm, cook, eat and change the future of food, together.

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.
