Save the Arctic is a global campaign to protect the fragile Arctic from reckless oil drilling and industrial fishing, and to preserve it from exploitation forever.
The Arctic is one of the world's most pristine natural regions. It contains over 13 million square miles of ocean and terrestrial environments with huge wilderness areas. The vast, thick ice cap around the North Pole sits over the central Arctic Ocean, receding and extending annually. This area falls outside of the territory and jurisdiction of any country, so it is both a global treasure and a global responsibility. That's why, as climate change makes this already fragile ecosystem even more vulnerable, Greenpeace is campaigning to establish an Arctic Sanctuary to protect the area.
Earlier this year, the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity recognised the central Arctic Ocean as an Ecologically or Biologically Significant Area (EBSA), a distinction that recognises its regional and global importance as an ecosystem.
As climate change makes this already fragile ecosystem even more vulnerable, Greenpeace is campaigning to establish an Arctic Sanctuary to protect the area.
