"Greenpeace and WWF Anniversaries Highlight Wildly Differing Tactics"

"This week marks two anniversaries of global green campaigning groups that could scarcely be more different, while holding almost identical aims."

"On Thursday, Greenpeace turns 40 – an unlikely candidate for middle age, given its activists' reputation for eye-catching and sometimes dangerous stunts. Last Sunday, WWF celebrated 50 years since the opening of its first office in Switzerland – a much more staid affair, as befits an organisation that boasts the support of the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Edinburgh."
