exposes threats to the environment & seeks solutions bears witness to environmental threats all over the planet is an international organization that exposes environmental threats wherever they may occur. The group takes on issues such as global warming, the health of oceans and forests, the danger of nuclear waste, and other toxins, and making agriculture more sustainable. Supported by people, not governments or companies

To maintain its independence, Greenpeace does not accept donations from governments or corporations, but relies solely on contributions from individual supporters and foundation grants.

Greenpeace has been campaigning against environmental degradation since 1971 when a small boat of volunteers and journalists sailed into Amchitka, an area north of Alaska where the US Government was conducting underground nuclear tests. The tradition of non-violent presence and observation continues today, and ships still play an important role in Greenpeace's work.

Greenpeace campaigns against "environmental criminals," and stands up to government and corporations when they fail to live up to their mandate to safeguard the environment and the planet's future.
