Seamounts of Aotearoa

The underwater mountains of Aotearoa are home to unique and amazing biodiversity. Many of the species found on these seamounts are found only here. It’s a sad fact that commercial bottom trawling is destroying creatures before we’ve even had a chance to study them.

CAMVERT: A recurring nightmare

50 Years of Change

Over fifty years – on all continents and oceans – together we have spoken truth to power, borne witness, stopped, blocked and placed our bodies in the way of environmental destruction. We have investigated and documented ecological contamination and crime. We have conducted scientific studies, litigated and lobbied. We have tried, failed and tried again. We have also succeeded!

#BanFossilAds in Europe

Using the Greenpeace interactive #BanFossilAds map, you can upload photos, the location, information about the fossil fuel companies and their products. The objective is to unveil how large the tentacles of fossil fuel companies are and how deep their influence runs. 

How many wild forests are left in the world

Greenpeace and the University of Maryland experts have created a new map of wild forests, which shows how and at what rate they disappeared over the past 20 years and how quickly their area will decrease in the future.

Livestock mega-farms in Belgium

Livestock factories are conquering the countryside in Belgium, while Flanders already has the second highest livestock concentration in Europe. The cattle industry primarily produces cheap meat for export.
View on the map all recent applications known to us for the construction of new mega-farms in Belgium.

Plastic Facilities Across the USA

An in progress tracker of industrial facilities involved in the plastic and petrochemical supply chain. Currently contains data from the EPA Facility Industrial Classification Search and company websites.

Air Quality Risk Index and Race in Chicago

The City of Chicago created an air quality and health risk index based on EJScreen and CalEnviroScreen methodology. In this map, the results of that index are compared with the demographic by census tract to visualize the relationship between majority POC areas and environmental hazards like air pollution.

Saya de Malha Research Expedition

The Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise is sailing to the Indian Ocean to expose and document the threats our oceans face. As part of this expedition, the onboard team will document wildlife on the Saya de Malha Bank, an area that is home to unique ecosystems. Greenpeace is campaigning for a strong Global Ocean Treaty to protect our global oceans. This map will provide updates throughout the expedition.

Mapping change: relating through stories

A Map of Global Voices is an interactive, experimental hub for stories from around the world. This platform is dedicated to finding and sharing stories concerning environmental activism that aren’t being told or heard right now.

You can submit your story that’s personal or about your community, nation or region relating to environmental activism.

Following a series of publications on the question of soya imports and the production of meat in France and in Europe Greenpeace wants to highlight, using a leaflet of maps, certain aspects of land use dynamics in Europe as well as European dependence on imported soya to sustain its livestock farming activities.

Global Wildfire Dashboard and Calendar

The Dashboard allows you to analyze hotspot data overlayed with weather forecast and landcover. The Calendar shows which month is statistically more fire-prone in different parts of the world.
Together these tools can help predict the catastrophe, prepare a public campaign on fires and follow the development of the situation using maps and satellites.

StoryMaps for COVID response related issues

Two Story Maps were created in March-July of 2020 to illustrate the spatial connection of animal wildlife trade and forest habitats’ loss with the pandemics outbreaks.

Stories about wildfires around the world

Our forests and peatlands are vital for the global climate and biodiversity hotspots. Devastating wildfires are destroying ecosystems worldwide now that natural fire regimes and landscapes are altered by human activities.

This map provides a snapshot of communities suffering from and fighting with wildfires from all over the world. Raging on all of the continents except Antarctica, across landscapes and with different origin, fires are nevertheless a common threat for people telling these stories.
