    Vocabulary: Boats (Rainbow Warrior)

    Greenpeace is a non-governmental environmental organization. Their boat is 'The Rainbow Warrior'.

    According to Greenpeace, the Rainbow Warrior’s name is taken from a North American Indian prophecy -
    “There would come a time when the Earth would be ravaged, the seas blackened, the streams poisoned and the birds fall from the sky.
    Just before it was too late,  people of all races and creeds would  band together to become Warriors of the Rainbow
    and return the Earth to its natural beauty and harmony'.
