Description:
Greenpeace is an international nonprofit, nongovernmental organization that uses direct action, lobbying, and research to combat threats to the Earth’s biodiversity and environment. Global warming, commercial whaling, and nuclear power are just a few of the issues it has focused on since its beginning in 1971.
In 1973 Greenpeace selected the whales as their first ecological campaign. In 2010 this sticker was distributed by Greenpeace during an Earth Day rally on the National Mall. More than 35 years later, Greenpeace continues its efforts “to save the whales.”
