For more than 35 years, Greenpeace has been on the front lines of environmental actions across the globe. From the first handful of activists who leased a small fishing vessel to stop nuclear testing off the coast of Alaska to the thousands of activists now working to push U.S. policymakers for comprehensive and science-based climate change policy, Greenpeace is one of the boldest and most independent campaigners for the planet. Today, Greenpeace has more than 2.9 million supporters around the world and engages a diverse array of effective strategies to expose global environmental problems and promote solutions that are essential to a green and peaceful future.
Greenpeace's effectiveness is recognized and respected in the global community, as evidenced in part by the fact that Greenpeace is the only environmental group with formal standing in the United Nations. Beyond the high profile tactics for which it has become famous, Greenpeace employs world-renowned scientists, policy experts and grassroots strategists who devise and spearhead targeted, thoughtful campaigns in 42 countries. These efforts are aimed at engaging the most influential leaders in our society for wholesale environmental change.

International Fund for Animal Welfare
The International Fund for Animal Welfare works to improve animal welfare, prevent animal cruelty and abuse, protect wildlife and provide animal rescue around the world.

Protecting the World's Oceans
Oceana seeks to make our oceans as rich, healthy and abundant as they were in our grandparents' youth. We look to a future in which dolphin sightings are common along any temperate coast; in which the mighty swordfish, marlin and tuna are abundant once again; in which whales and sea turtles thrive, cod are plentiful on both sides of the Atlantic, local fishing cultures evolve rather then decline and in which fish are a safe, growing and plentiful source of food around the world.
Save the Whales Again!
Save the Whales Again! is a campaign of The Whaleman Foundation and Animal Welfare Institute, The Animal Welfare Institute, founder of the original "Save the Whales" movement, was established in 1951 to reduce the sum total of pain and fear inflicted on animals by humans. The Whaleman Foundation is an oceanic research, conservation and production organization dedicated to preserving and protecting dolphins, whales, and their ocean habitat.
Our mission is to end whaling worldwide, while raising public awareness to all the other threats dolphins and whales face including toxic pollution, noise pollution, global warming, loss of habitat, entanglement in fishing nets, collisions with ships, and increasing whaling.
