Protect an ugly fish | Greenpeace Giving

By: Greenpeace  06-Dec-2011
Keywords: Fish, Sea Creatures, Fishing Practices

We all know that photogenic sea creatures like dolphins, whales and turtles need protecting, but at Greenpeace we don’t discriminate based on looks. There are countless species of fish in the seas that wouldn’t make the front of a postcard, but are still critically endangered, and we are working to protect them all.

Our seas and oceans used to be teeming with fish and other sea creatures, but decades of destructive fishing practices and overfishing have led to stocks of fish declining and many species facing extinction. Greenpeace is campaigning for 40 percent of the world’s oceans to be designated as marine reserves, like underwater national parks. These designated areas, where no fishing is allowed, will enable oceans to recover and protect all species of sea creatures, attractive or otherwise.

Urine bottle | Greenpeace Giving

The last thing they need is to put themselves at risk by having to answer the call of nature, so this reusable plastic bottle is a vital piece of kit. Whether we’re closing down a power station or hanging a banner off a building, our activists may need to be sticking around for hours or even days. When you’ve been occupying a coal ship or a crane for several hours, it is inevitable that at some point nature will call.

Arm tube | Greenpeace Giving

If you need to occupy a dirty power station or some other scene of an environmental crime, using a metal arm tube to lock yourself to someone else, or even to your other arm, will make it significantly more complicated time consuming and difficult for the people trying to move you on.

A tuna for your grandchildren

Greenpeace is putting pressure on these restaurants to stop serving endangered species, as well as taking direct action where bluefin is being fished, and lobbying governments and the EU to make trading bluefin illegal. Some species of tuna are as endangered as rhinos and tigers, but they are still being legally caught and sold in shops and restaurants.

A snapper for your grandchildren

The nearly 1 million Kiwis who enjoy recreational fishing could easily surf cast from the beach and be guaranteed at least a kahawai and some mussels off the rocks. We’re more likely to know about other countries’ ocean and overfishing issues than about the realities of what’s happening in our own back-yard. Tell the average Kiwi that they may not be able to eat seafood in the future and we’re guessing they’d scoff at you.

Forest Crime File | Greenpeace Giving

Help us investigate and expose the companies on the ground who destroy the rainforest, and those around the world who trade products, such as soya or beef, that are grown or raised on destroyed land. This gift will help us conduct the research and undercover investigation needed for crime files, including obtaining trade data, company documents, photographs and satellite analysis of forest areas.
