Transcript of Greenpeace

SO WHAT IS GREENPEACE ? In 1971, motivated by their vision of a green and peaceful world, a small team of activists set sail from Vancouver, Canada in an old fishing boat. These activists, the founders of Greenpeace, believed a few individuals could make a difference. Their mission was to see U.S. underground nuclear testing at Amchitka, a tiny island off the West Coast of Alaska, which is where a lot of earthquakes happen !

Amchitka was the last refuge for 3,000 endangered sea otters, and home to bald eagles, peregrine falcons, and other wildlife.

Even though their old boat, the Phyllis Cormack, was stopped before it got to Amchitka, the journey got a lot of public interest.


The U.S. still detonated the bomb,but people had listened . Nuclear testing on Amchitka ended that same year, and the island was later declared a bird sanctuary.
Today, Greenpeace is an international organization that prioritizes global environmental campaigns. The Greenpeace global headquarters are in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. They have 2.8 million supporters’ worldwide and offices in 41 countries ! The main goal of all their work is a green and peaceful world However there are many more aims... They want to reduce the carbon polluting system and to use a far more eco-friendly option. by Jake, Tom, Stefan and Adam. Their vision for the climate
Their vision for the world's forests They are working to protect the world's ancient forests and the plants, animals and peoples that depend on them. Their vision for healthy oceans
they want oceans that are protected and full of healthy animals; oceans that are carefully looked after, and fishing that doesn`t put species at risk And their vision for a peaceful world. Governments and industry around the world must ensure that the Earth's limited resources are shared fairly, so people have what they need to live peacefully. As you can see, there are quite a few Greenpeace events, meetings and groups taking place in our local area. The Northamptonshire Greenpeace group has 39 members.

This caused a loss of 2 million members in the mid 1990’s especially in America and Canada because people thought that their work was too violent and could actually be harming the environment instead of helping it, and also because there is worry in regard to how they use their donations.
