TunaTV - Episode 1

Blog entry by Lisa | 5 May, 2008 1 comment

An ex-fisherman from the Solomon Islands speaks out on overfishing in the Pacific. I shot this video using a little digital hand held camera and edited it on my laptop - so sorry about the background noises of the ship and...

Taking tuna and turtles offline

Blog entry by Lisa | 3 May, 2008 1 comment

We've just confiscated several kilometres of tuna fishing gear, freed marine life and sent a Taiwanese longlining vessel out of Pacific international waters and all before lunch! The 5am wake up call today came way too early for some...

Sayonara to Solomons

Blog entry by Lisa | 2 May, 2008 1 comment

Here's a blog from Dean, our Kiwi communications officer on board the Esperanza OK, so I admit it, I didn’t want to leave Honiara. Land itself had been such a welcome relief for me – but the big smiles, the new food, the busy markets...

Defending the Pacific - Part 2

Blog entry by Lisa | 29 April, 2008 1 comment

The Esperanza has just left Honiara in the Solomon Islands where I joined the ship so that we can keep you up to date on all of our adventures in the Pacific. I have replaced Jess, the webby from the Greenpeace USA office, who has...

Blog entry by tom | 25 April, 2008

“Ladies and Gentlemen your attention please: the Dong Won, Mitsubishi, Moon Marine, Azzopardi and Ricardo Fuentes stalls are now closed.” And they were. It felt great knowing that the ever so slightly familiar voices coming airport...

New site tracking greenwashing

Blog entry by Andrew | 24 April, 2008 2 comments

I don't know if greenwash was invented by US corporations, but there does seem to be a lot more of it there than in the rest of the world. So it's good news that Greenpeace USA has launched stopgreenwash.org to track the filthy stuff...

Esperanza arrives in the Solomons

Blog entry by Jess | 23 April, 2008

Last night, as the sun was setting, I got my first glimpse of land in 3 weeks. When I woke up, I could see that we were passing islands. The Esperanza pulled into Honiara, Solomon Islands this morning. The ship and crew were greeted...

Dove viral -- the backing track...

Blog entry by brianfit | 22 April, 2008 4 comments

We've had a couple requests here about the music in our new viral video, Onslaught(er) , which takes on Dove's use of palm oil in their beauty products. Palm plantations are destroying rainforests, which in turn is contributing to...

Top Dove video on YouTube

Blog entry by eoin | 22 April, 2008 4 comments

Go take a look -- Search YouTube for "Dove" -- and you'll see our new video top of the list. I wonder what the marketing folk at Unilever (the company behind Dove soap) will think when they see that. Last month we polled...
