Help Save the Arctic

Save the Arctic

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. It may seem far away but the health of the Arctic affects every person on this planet. It acts as the Earth’s heart, regulating our climate and circulating the ocean currents.

We have reached a defining moment in history. In 2012, the Arctic sea ice has fallen to the lowest level on record. In just 30 years, more than 75% of sea ice has disappeared.

Polar bears, walruses and narwhals are struggling to survive in a melting Arctic. Meanwhile oil companies like Shell are rushing in to extract previously inaccessible oil reserves, and coal companies are forging ahead to dramatically increase Australia’s coal production, putting the health of this pristine area at risk.

Without a government to protect it, the Arctic is vulnerable to exploitation. Greenpeace has a plan for people around the world to become guardians of the Arctic.

Together we will call on governments and the United Nations to turn the Arctic into a global sanctuary.

We have succeeded before. 30 years ago, Greenpeace led a movement to protect Antarctica. Today it remains a global sanctuary; a haven for scientific research and off-limits to exploitation.

Take a stand too and join the global movement to Save the Arctic.
