You can help protect the Antarctic Ocean

Sitting at the bottom of the world, the Antarctic is home to a great diversity of life. But a warming climate and an expanding commercial fishing industry are threatening this untouched area and its iconic creatures.

The good news is we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to create an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary - the largest protected area on Earth.

Tell the EU Commission it’s time to take on plastic waste

UPDATE, November 2017: A secret plastic waste strategy paper from the European Commission only mentions a “possible” initiative on single-use plastics -- a much weaker commitment than in an earlier leaked draft. Add your voice and help make sure the Commission doesn't bow to corporate lobbyists!

EDF's mud must be shown to be safe

EDF are planning to build a new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point in Somerset. The company wants to dump muddy waste in the Severn Estuary to clear the way for a new nuclear reactor. More than 300,000 tonnes of this mud is from old nuclear power sites. Some of the mud is the byproduct of Britain’s atomic weapons programme.

EDF are planning to dredge up mud contaminated by the previous Hinkley power stations to make way for a new power station, but this mud may be dangerously radioactive.
