The 'Defending Our Oceans' voyage is the single largest expedition that Greenpeace has ever undertaken. This incredible year-long journey will tell the story of the crisis facing our oceans from the Azores to Antarctica, take you to places few humans have been, confront the villains and promote solutions -- and you can join us by signing up as an Ocean Defender!
