Greenpeace is urgently campaigning to protect the oceans.

Our work is 100% funded by people like you. Without that ongoing support, we cannot continue.

Will you chip in a regular contribution now to help protect the oceans and give ocean wildlife like turtles a safe home? It can be about $1 a day.

Greenpeace does not accept funding from governments or corporations so we can maintain a much needed independent voice and always put the planet top of the agenda. We rely on the generosity of our individual supporters like you to fund our work. Greenpeace New Zealand is an approved donee organisation. Donations of $5 or more are tax-deductible.

Ministers Nash and Sage: I demand that the NZ Govt bans bottom trawling on seamounts and similar deep sea features, and stop issuing permits for bottom trawling in international waters.


Our blue planet is under threat.

From destructive fishing and mining, to climate change - the threats facing our oceans are growing greater by the day. We urgently need a network of ocean sanctuaries across the globe to protect them.
