Greenpeace was founded in 1971 to protest U.S. nuclear testing off the coast of Alaska. Since its inception, Greenpeace has worked to ban commercial whaling and to protect Antarctica. Today it is an international organization that has offices in over 30 countries and continues to work to protect the environment against threats such as climate change and deforestation.
