Help keep the Greenpeace ships on patrol

One of the issues Greenpeace campaigns on is bottom trawling, it's an important issue which should be tackled, the page takes a look at the destructive nature of bottom trawling:

The destruction of deep-sea life in international waters off the east coast of Canada is especially troubling because, unlike most other international waters, there is a regulatory body in place to regulate high-seas bottom trawling in that area: NAFO, the North Atlantic Fisheries Organisation.

But according to Bruce Cox, Executive Director of Greenpeace Canada, NAFO "is bound by red tape, has little punishment for member countries... and it turns a blind eye frequently to infractions of their own rules."

If it were not for Greenpeace highlighting this serious issue, and others, then people like you and I would not know about them. Help us to help Greenpeace to continue to highlight important issues by pledging to sponsor us today.
