Save the Arctic

Home to incredible wildlife, from mysterious narwhals to majestic polar bears, the Arctic also strongly influences the planet's climate and weather. Today climate change and oil drilling pose an extreme threat to this vitally important icy ecosystem. To protect the beautiful but fragile Arctic environment, Greenpeace is leading a people-powered movement to keep "Big Oil" out. We're also campaigning for a marine sanctuary in the North Pole's international waters.

Secure Arctic protection

We're campaigning for a protected sanctuary in international waters around the North Pole as part of a network of protected areas across the Arctic Ocean. We need YOUR support to make this happen. The Save The Arctic movement asks world leaders to create a global sanctuary in the uninhabited area around the North Pole, and to ban oil drilling and destructive fishing in Arctic waters. Join the movement that is making a difference and show the world that you will stand for the Arctic for as long as it takes.

Stop Big Oil's destruction of the Arctic

The movement to save the Arctic is growing stronger because of people like you. Together we’ve come so far — and we can go even further. In 2015 Shell quit the Arctic after three years of non-stop people power! Over seven MILLION people were there to expose Shell’s failings and call the company to account at every turn. Now it’s time to make sure Big Oil never returns.

Defend the wildlife

The Arctic Ocean is home to incredible wildlife, from majestic polar bears to blubbery walruses, mysterious narwhals and graceful seabirds. But the sea ice they depend on is vanishing at a terrifying speed. Without the ice to hunt, rest, and breed, the very survival of polar bears and other wildlife is under threat. Mother polar bears, weak and starving, have trouble reproducing. Their cubs must fight the odds to survive into adulthood. Unless we make a global, concentrated effort to prevent this, experts warn that polar bears could disappear completely from the Arctic in the next 100 years. Act now to protect their home.
