Mandate and Funding The End Core
Impact and Canada's Involvement “In 1971, a small group of activists set sail to the Amchitka Island off Alaska to try and stop a US nuclear weapons test. The money for the mission was raised with a concert; their old fishing boat was called “The Greenpeace”. This is where our story begins.”- Greenpeace website It supports positive change through the actions of people who stand against environmental abuse by governments and corporations. The organization even states that its goal “...is to ensure the ability of the Earth to nurture life in all its diversity." This wonderful organization champagnes environmental responsibility as well as solutions to major issues affecting the living habitats and all the creatures living within.

Some of the accomplishments they have made for their cause getting France to end their atmospheric testing, stopping the seal slaughter in Scotland, exposing toxic waste trade, creating Argentina’s first forest protection law on the native forests, and countless other success stories. The accomplishment which Greenpeace is best known for would be the Rainbow Warrior ship. This ship was involved in many, almost all, of Greenpeace’s over sea protests including halting the Icelandic waling fleet, ocean dumping of toxic waste, the Grey Seal hunt in Orkney and nuclear testing in the Pacific. Greenpeace evolved from a group of Canadian protesters into a less conservative group of environmentalists who were more reflective of the counterculture and hippie youth movements of the 1960s and 1970s. Since Canadians were the ones who originally started this organization they have been involved since the beginning. Many Canadians donate to Greenpeace each year although the funds have been decreasing since the 1990’s.
