Defending our Pacific - East Asian Tour

The Rainbow Warrior II, is visiting Taiwan, Hong Kong and Korea as part of the international Greenpeace campaign to defend the Pacific. A truly global ocean, the Pacific provides millions with food, jobs and a future. The once tuna-rich Pacific is now under serious threat by years of overfishing. The future of marine life and those reliant on the Pacific now hangs in the balance.

This trend can be reversed by reducing fishing effort and capacity - creating marine reserves and stoping the use of our oceans as a waste dump. There is an opportunity to expand the protection of the Pacific Ocean by building on the current protection of international waters - turning them into fully protected marine reserves.

You can help defend the Pacific by writing to one of the big companies responsible for selling tuna from this region - Princes.
