The Arctic is in danger. Its ice is retreating at an increasing speed, cleaning the path for greedy oil companies that see this catastrophe as a business opportunity. Native people traditional way of life and health will be at risk and wildlife are to be uselessly endangered in the name of a shortsighted idea of progress and growth. Canada is one of the Largest Arctic countries in the world, and as such it has a clear responsibility to take a precautionary approach for any new development. The Arctic campaign is a massive worldwide effort to ban all industrial extractive activities at the inhabitant area in the Arctic oceans Together we can save the Arctic.
Climate change and the threats of nuclear energy are real. That is why Greenpeace works to bring about a clean and just energy future. Tar sands and nuclear development plague the ecosystems and communities they occupy with safety and health risks. The Energy [R]evolution is a set of ready-to-implement solutions that lead away from the dangers of climate chaos and nuclear meltdown. It is a vision of the clean and just energy future for everyone on the planet.
With 80 per cent of the planet's ancient forests already lost or degraded, the need for increased protection of the world’s remaining forests is more urgent than ever. Forests help stabilize the climate, sustain life, provide jobs, and are the source of culture for many Indigenous communities. Greenpeace opposes destructive and unsustainable development in the remaining ancient forests in Canada and globally. To effect positive change and put lasting solutions in place, we challenge the global marketplace, engage consumers, pressure governments and work with industry to protect the Boreal Forest, the Great Bear Rainforest and the Indonesian Rainforest.
Life on our blue planet depends on healthy oceans, but recent reports warn that sea life faces the next mass extinction. Next to climate change, overfishing is the single greatest threat to marine biodiversity. Industrial fishing has reduced populations of large, predatory fish like tuna, cod and sharks by about ninety per cent in the last fifty years. Growing demand for seafood, wasteful fishing practices and mismanaged fish stocks and aquaculture operations are leading to broken links in marine food chains in Canadian waters and worldwide. Urgent action is needed to protect marine life and allow recovery. Greenpeace works to relieve pressure on ocean ecosystems and to establish a network of no-take marine reserves–ocean parks–covering 40 per cent of the world's oceans.
