GreenPeace Campaign for Save The Earth

GreenPeace Campaign for Save The Earth

Greenpeace Foundation’s main focus is saving whales, dolphins, and other threatened marine species from ill-advised human activities; and protecting the global ocean ecosystem. The Greenpeace Foundation currently has several campaigns in progress – strong efforts to save our damaged seas. Find out more about our campaigns, listed below, and get involved!
Dolphin-safe Campaign
Greenpeace Foundation Campaign
To stop the changing of current stringent U.S. dolphin protection laws and prevent a huge renewed kill by the tuna industry.
The campaign for a dolphin-safe tuna fishery, which Greenpeace Foundation has worked on as a core issue since 1976, now has Emergency status. Dolphins are in grave danger once again, due to a U.S. bailout of dolphin-killing nations, and U.S. legislation passed in 1997 which guts U.S. dolphin-protection law and would fraudulently re-define the term “dolphin safe.”
 
Anti-Whaling Campaign
Greenpeace Foundation Campaign
To end whaling worldwide
Whales are incredible, intelligent animals whose numbers have been cruelly decimated by industrial whaling. Greenpeace Foundation is dedicated to an end to all whaling. It was a founder of the global anti-whaling movement, and has worked for three decades in this cause, seeking out, uncovering, and exposing the reality, cruelty – and often illegality – of whaling. Much has been accomplished, but the whales aren’t saved yet.
 
The japan dolphin kill campaign.
Greenpeace Foundation Campaign
To stop the killing of dolphins for sale in Japan’s marketplace.
Greenpeace Foundation originally defined the Japan dolphin-saving issue for the world. Now we are working to end “drive kills” and “harpoon fisheries”. We’re also working to expose and end the growing practice of selling dolphin as “whale meat”, which defrauds the Japanese consumer, creates a lucrative black market, and encourages international trade in dead dolphins.The photos associated with this campaign are distressing. Discretion should be used when viewing them.

 
Driftnet Campaign
Greenpeace Foundation Campaign
To end driftnetting worldwide.
Driftnetting is the most destructive form of fishing ever devised. 40-mile-long nets are laid in a straight line, 50 feet deep. Laid perpendicular to fish and marine animal migrations, they float like invisible unbreakable spider webs, catching everything which cannot swim through a mesh size as small as 4″. Driftnets can strip-mine the life out of an area in only a few seasons, leaving a lifeless watery desert. Greenpeace Foundation created the fight to ban them, a fight still in progress to save whales, seals, dolphins, seabirds, turtles, and hundreds of other species.
 
Sea Turtle Campaign
Greenpeace Foundation Campaign
To prevent the killing of 150,000 endangered sea turtles each year in unmodified shrimp nets.
Like the dolphins, the sea turtles have been sold out by the U.S. in the name of “free trade”. Turtles are caught in shrimping nets around the world, but “turtle excluder devices” can release over 97% of sea turtles unharmed. USA law until 1988 mandated the use of these devices on all shrimp sold in the U.S., saving huge numbers of turtles. But now the U.S. government is bowing to the World Trade Organization which says such U.S. laws are not allowable. We’re campaigning to reject the arbitrary WTO rulings and prevent the eradication of sea turtles.
 
Monk Seal Campaign
Greenpeace Foundation Campaign
To prevent the extinction of the Monk Seal.
The most endangered seal species on earth – actually an endangered genus – is the Monk Seal. All global populations are now considered extinct except for fragile populations based on remote isles in the North Pacific and in caves in the Mediterranean. Although living in remote areas, their populations have been brought to the threshold of extinction by man’s activities. We’re working to help them survive.
 
LFA/Ocean Environment Campaign
Greenpeace Foundation Campaign
To lessen the noise pollution of the seas from low-frequency military sonars and other sources.
The seas and their inhabitants are subjected to many stresses from man’s activities. One which is little known but potentially destructive is noise pollution, which can disrupt the lives of or physically harm sea animals. The U.S. Navy, NATO, and other navies are blasting the oceans with enormous sound pressures as part of systems designed to detect enemy submarines. We’re trying to end this assault, and recommending alternate approaches.
