Greenpeace is an international environmental organization that was founded in 1971 in Vancouver, Canada. It gained international recognition for its campaigns against whaling and nuclear weapons testing. In later years, the focus of the organization turned to other environmental issues, including bottom trawling, global warming, ancient forest destruction, nuclear power, and genetic engineering. Greenpeace has national and regional offices in 41 countries worldwide, all of which are affiliated with the Amsterdam-based Greenpeace International.
