• The Reef is indeed in danger - the truth behind the lies

    6 June 2016

    Environment Minister Greg Hunt has tweeted the most despicable words of the election campaign so far. Across a picture of sparkling blue Great Barrier Reef waters, he has in recent days proclaimed: “Under Labor, the U.N. put the Great Barrier Reef on the in danger ‘watch-list’. Under the Coalition, it came off.”

  • There's no place like home for turtles

    23 May 2016

    Turtles are awesome. Seriously, they’re living dinosaurs that have survived against all odds to roam the oceans for more than 100 million years. They live about as long as elephants, and rock their wrinkles in the same way.

  • You Stood Up for Rainforests and Companies That Use Palm Oil Are Listening

    11 May 2016

    Written by Rolf Skar, Forest Campaign Director at Greenpeace USA. Hundreds of thousands of you spoke up for Indonesia's rainforests and companies like Colgate-Palmolive are listening. There is still a lot to do, but it is making progress to reduce rainforest destroying palm oil from its supply chain.

  • We did it! We won a world-class recycling system for NSW

    10 May 2016

    From July 2017, you’ll get 10c back for every can and bottle you recycle. It may not sound like much, but it worked for South Australia with double the recycling rate of other states. It’s the system we were promised by Premier Mike Baird back in 2015 - and he was dragging his heels until Greenpeace supporters rallied to defend earlier this year against Coke-led attacks

  • Panama Papers: the plot thickens

    9 May 2016

    Back in April, the Panama Papers rocked the world, exposing just how the global elite use offshore trusts in tax havens such as the British Virgin Islands, Panama and the Bahamas to hide their wealth and dodgy deals. Thanks to an anonymous whistleblower who leaked a huge amount of data from Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, we now have evidence of the extent of global tax avoidance.

  • I want to Break Free (from fossil fuels)

    7 May 2016

    This week, waves of community activism and civil disobedience are sweeping across the world’s most polluting fossil fuel projects. Tens of thousands of people determined to rid their future from the floods, heat waves, droughts, cyclones and other extreme weather events, that are fuelled by fossil fuels, will stand face to face with the giant ships, excavators, smokestacks and institutions that threaten their future and say enough is enough - it’s time to Break Free from fossil fuels.

  • Why I got my kit off for a #CoalFree future

    22 April 2016

    You may have caught Greenpeace Australia Pacific’s video launching the #CoalFree movement to protect the things we love from coal pollution. The video features four half-naked volunteers having their bodies painted - half of them as black smoke protruding from coal stacks and the other half as all the colours of Australia’s most precious natural environments. That’s me on the right, in the spectacular colours of the Great Barrier Reef.

  • Painting Ourselves White to Keep the Reef Colourful

    Friday morning nearly 100 of us gathered near the Sydney Opera House to raise awareness about the current coral bleaching event and to call on the government to get serious about fighting climate change.
