Rainbow Warrior

Greenpeace is building the world's first purpose-built environmental campaigning ship - the new Rainbow Warrior. But we urgently need your donation to help.

Greenpeace won't accept donations from governments and corporations, so we depend on people like you to keep afloat.

Help us build the new Rainbow Warrior

After 52 years at sea (21 years as a Greenpeace ship), the current Rainbow Warrior is heading for retirement. Your donation today will help us pay for the new, improved Rainbow Warrior.

The ship will be purpose-built and better equipped to tackle the great environmental threats of our time - like climate change, overfishing, destructing of forests and toxic chemicals poisoning the Earth.

The new custom-built Rainbow Warrior will enable us to take action, year after year, anywhere in the world. That persistence and dedication is what enables Greenpeace to win important victories. And we need those victories more now than ever before.

Please help us build the new Rainbow Warrior by making a donation today.

How the new Rainbow Warrior will make a difference

As part of her role the new Warrior will work at the front line to:

  • Promote clean, green energy - blocking coal shipments and launching activists to draw attention to the desperate need for a global revolution in renewable energy.
  • Defend our forests - she will track illegal shipments of timber, collecting the evidence needed to prosecute rogue companies and bring about tougher government regulations.
  • Protect our oceans - her helicopter carrying facilities will enable us to spot illegal fishing operations from miles and bring criminals to justice and work towards establishing marine reserves.

See the history of the Rainbow Warrior on the interactive timeline below, and listen to some of our activists speak about the importance of the ship.
