What we do

Australia and the Pacific are unique and precious environments. We're (bloody) lucky to call them home. We've got a beautiful climate, rich oceans, vast forests and healthy food. Yet all of this is under threat. Greenpeace takes action to protect our natural home, now and for the future.

Stop climate change


Climate change threatens everything we hold dear – our homes, our health, our planet. Our addiction to burning coal for energy is pushing us into an urgent crisis. But safe, renewable-energy can power our future – it will be cheaper and healthier for our families and our planet. Join Greenpeace’s energy [r]evolution! Find out more

Protect ancient forests


Forests are the lungs of the earth. The air we breathe, the stability of our climate and the rich variety of life depends on forests. Yet an area of forest the size of a football field is destroyed every two seconds. Greenpeace is working to save the last remaining healthy forests from illegal and destructive logging. Find out more

Defending our oceans


We live on Planet Ocean. Oceans cover around 70% of the planet, yet only 1% is protected from human activity. The Pacific Ocean, one of the last relatively healthy ocean ecosystems, is being plundered at an alarming rate. We’re working to transform industrial fishing practices, establish marine reserves and end all forms of whaling. Find out more



Australia grows some of the best food in the world. But genetically modified (GM) crops are threatening our environment, our health and our food supply. We have a choice – Australia can become a GM testing ground, or we can grow the safe, healthy food we know. Greenpeace is taking action to stop the invasion of GM. We deserve food we can trust.

Australia is about to rapidly increase our coal exports and export it via the Great Barrier Reef, while the Arctic sea ice reaches its lowest point on record. The pending coal boom spells disaster for our unique and ecologically sensitive reef and for our climate. Find out more



There are some places on this Earth that are so important and fragile they should be protected at all costs. The Arctic is one of those places. Without a government to protect it, the Arctic is vulnerable to exploitation. Together we will call on governments and the United Nations to turn the Arctic into a global sanctuary. Find out more


End the nuclear age


Greenpeace has always fought - and will continue to fight - vigorously against nuclear  power because it is an unacceptable risk to the environment and to humanity. The only solution is to halt the expansion of all nuclear power, and for the shutdown of existing plants. Find out more


End whaling


For over thirty years Greenpeace has taken action to protect the gentle giants of the sea. Our work has helped end whaling in nearly every country and revived decimated whale populations. Yet whales are still not safe. Today we’re campaigning to protect whales from the many dangers they face, from ‘scientific’ whaling to climate change. Find out more
