Join with Greenpeace and take action to help stop the destruction of the Arctic

 

What’s happening?

The Arctic Ocean is home to incredible wildlife, from majestic polar bears to blubbery walruses, mysterious narwhals and graceful seabirds. But the sea ice they depend on is vanishing at a terrifying speed. Without that ice to hunt, rest, and breed, the very survival of polar bears and other wildlife is under threat. Mother polar bears, weak and starving, have trouble reproducing. Their cubs must fight the odds to survive into adulthood. The Arctic still faces threats from oil drilling, seismic blasting, industrial fishing and climate change. The Arctic is warming up at twice the rate of the rest of the planet.

Greenpeace’s efforts

People power works. Greenpeace and you have helped force one of the world’s most powerful oil companies to leave the Arctic. Shell had billions of dollars and an army of lawyers but Greenpeace had millions of passionate people. And together, we won. Every voice mattered. Each action worked. This incredible victory is a sign of hope. We can win this.

Greenpeace are campaigning for a protected sanctuary in international waters around the North Pole as part of a network of protected areas across the Arctic Ocean. They need YOUR support to make this happen.

Unless we make a global concentrated effort to prevent this, experts warn that polar bears could disappear completely from the Arctic in the next 100 years. Act now to protect their home. Ask world leaders to create a global sanctuary in the uninhabited area around the North Pole, and to ban oil drilling and destructive fishing in Arctic waters. Join the movement that is making a difference and show the world that you will stand for the Arctic for as long as it takes.

Supporting Greenpeace

Phoenix Rising For Children (PRFC) is an accredited out-of-home or foster care agency providing services in Sydney, including the greater metropolitan areas, Central Coast and parts of the Hunter region of NSW, Australia. PRFC was founded in 2001 to provide quality foster care to children and young people in NSW, including contemporary, quality, family-based foster care and effective and specialist support services to children and young people and their families.
