Save the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge!
Greedy special interests and extremists have been trying to drill the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for more than 30 years – and now they’re closer than ever! If successful, the Arctic Refuge could become a free-for-all for Big Oil and a nightmare for polar bears, Arctic foxes, caribou, muskoxen and many other unique and imperiled species that call this highly-sensitive ecosystem home. The Trump administration’s reckless dash to expedite drilling and desecrate the Arctic Refuge is unacceptable, and Defenders will not stand by and watch them destroy this incredible landscape.

Toxic air pollution from diesel fumes is damaging the health of thousands of people across the globe. Children and the elderly are the most affected, with health problems from asthma to dementia made worse by inhaling the toxic nitrogen oxides that diesel engines emit.

Demand world leaders be held accountable to insure they restore & protect forests worldwide
Forests play a crucial role in the health of our planet. They are more then just a collection of trees- they are integrated ecosystems and home to the highest concentration of biodiversity on earth! Forests are also major players in the carbon and water cycles that make life possible as well as playing a key role in the local water cycle by helping to keep the balance between water on land and water in the atmosphere.
Bring home the benefits of a renewable Canada!

Canada can’t afford to keep going backwards with outdated fossil fuel infrastructure investments and subsidies.
Choose people over oil
When politicians put oil and profit before people and planet, we need to hold them accountable. We need to use the courts to make sure that governments respect their constitutions and uphold their responsibility to protect our planet and our health. This will be the first time this right is tested in court. When politicians put oil before people, they need to be held accountable. This is why we are taking Arctic oil to Court!
Tell the UK government: no oil drilling in national parks
Fossil fuel companies want to get around restrictions on fracking in national parks - using acid to drill for oil in some of the UK's most beautiful places.

Sign the Greenpeace petition to help protect these special places.
