Declare a Sanctuary in the Arctic

by signing the following petition, you can lend your voice to tell global leaders that it is imperative that humankind establishes an Arctic Sanctuary!

The following information was provided by Greenpeace Australia - Right now, the Arctic is melting because of our use of dirty fossil fuel energy. In the near future, it could be ice free for the first time since humans walked the earth.

In the last 30 years, we've lost as much as three-quarters of the floating ice cap at the top of the world. Scientists say it's now in a 'death spiral.'

To save the Arctic, we have to act today. Join the 3 million strong movement of people who want the Arctic kept safe for future generations. When we reach our target, we'll plant it as a Flag for the Future on top of the world.

Thirty years ago, we launched a similar campaign to protect the Antarctic. Nobody thought we would succeed, but we did, and we created a world park around the South Pole. Now the Arctic is calling.
