#NEWS Ocean Warrior Launch!

After 18 months of construction by Dutch shipbuilding company, Damen, The MV Ocean Warrior​ was lowered into the waters of Antalya Harbour in Turkey last Friday.
Purchased thanks to the support and generosity of the Dutch Postcode Lottery, the People’s Postcode Lottery in the United Kingdom and the Svenska Postkod Stiftelsen in Sweden, Ocean Warrior is now the fifth vessel in Sea Shepherd Global’s current fleet of conservation ships, and the fifteenth in the organisation’s history.

BOB BROWN FOUNDATION JOINS GREAT AUSTRALIAN BIGHT ALLIANCE TO FIGHT OFF OIL RIG
Call to Frydenberg to save Bight from BP oil rig threat.
The Bob Brown Foundation has joined a national alliance of environment organisations to fight off the impending arrival of the world's biggest oil rig in the Great Australian Bight. The rig, currently nearing completion in South Korea, is due in the Bight in October, after which BP intends to drill thousands of metres under the 2000 metres deep Bight.
"BP's massive oil spill and fire in the Gulf of Mexico has, so far, cost $56 billion. When Australians get to know about this dangerous proposal bringing the same risk to the pristine waters of the Great Australian Bight they will be outraged. The Bight is one of the world's greatest whale harbours: an oil spill by BP would threaten everything and extend that threat to the Victorian coast as well as the Tarkine coast and King Island in Tasmania," Bob Brown said today.
"The first thing the nation's new Minister for the Environment Josh Frydenberg should do to be true to his office is to let BP know its drill is not welcome in the Bight," Bob Brown said.
"When BP set their sights on drilling for oil in the Great Australian Bight, they severely underestimated the opposition they would face. Today, with the Bob Brown Foundation joining the alliance, it is clear that the opposition to BP's project that threatens the Bight is only growing stronger.
BP wants to drill for oil in seas rougher, deeper and more remote than where they had a disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. With the recent spill in the Gulf of Mexico by Shell, it is clear that if BP is allowed to drill for oil in the Bight, it will not be a matter of if there is a spill, but when, and a spill in the Bight would be impossible to clean up," said Jeff Hansen, Managing Director Sea Shepherd Australia.
Wilderness Society South Australia Director Peter Owen said “Since the launch of the Great Australian Bight Alliance in January, opposition to BP’s push to drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight whale nursery has grown rapidly. It is one of the planet’s biggest threats and a liveable climate for our children is at stake”.
“The Bob Brown Foundation joining the Alliance highlights the importance of protecting the Bight and stopping the expansion of the fossil fuel industry. One of the world’s most respected voices has joined the campaign,” Mr Owen said.

-- URGENT -- PLEASE DONATE AND SHARE ---
We urgently needs to raise $150k to get Operation Jeedara underway and show the world what is at stake if BP drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight.
The Great Australian Bight is home to the world’s largest Southern right whale nursery. This is why we have to get the MY Steve Irwin to the Bight in August when Southern right mothers will take refuge with their calves.
Operation Jeedara will showcase what we will all lose if BP were allowed to bring their monster oil rig into the Bight. After another recent spill in the Gulf by Shell, it is clear that if BP is allowed to bring their monster rig south, it will not be a question of if there is a spill, but when.
Any damage from an oil spill would be irreversable and the Great Australian Bight is simply too precious to put at such risk.
There is a perception out there that Sea Shepherd is a big organisation with lots of funding and nothing can be further from the truth.
In 2012 we took the Steve Irwin to the Kimberley, to showcase what we would all loose if Woodside Petroleum put the world’s biggest gas hub, through the middle of the world’s biggest humpback whale nursery and we won - that whale nursery is now safe. We won against Woodside to protect the Kimberley whales and we can win against BP to protect the Great Australian Bight.
Please help us raise the funds see the MY Steve Irwin depart on Operation Jeedara on the 5th August.

#‎BREAKING‬: Operation Driftnet a Resounding Success; Sea Shepherd Shuts Down Entire Illegal Driftnet Fleet.
Operation Driftnet, a campaign launched by Sea Shepherd Global in February, 2016, has successfully ended the operations of a fleet of 6 illegal fishing vessels.
‪#‎READ‬ the full story: http://bit.ly/292eiJt
In an email to Sea Shepherd Global Director Captain Alex Cornelissen, the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture has communicated the results of their investigation. The Chinese government has temporarily suspended the fishing licenses of all of the vessels owned by the company, the Dong Xing Long Ocean Fishing Company. The six vessels of the Fu Yuan Yu fleet have been ordered to remain in port for an indefinite period. In addition, the captains of the fishing vessels have had their certification as Masters permanently revoked and each vessel has been fined the equivalent of $300,000 U.S. dollars.
Captain Paul Watson, founder of Sea Shepherd said, “This was a bold campaign led by a courageous Sea Shepherd captain and his crew. This intervention has removed six very destructive poaching ships from the Indian Ocean and has sent a strong message to Chinese flagged ships around the Globe that China is serious about international fisheries law and enforcement.”

WE DID IT! THANKYOU! The Power of our supporters & social media.
Commentary By +Omar Todd​ - Sea Shepherd Chief Geek

We have just had our appeal finish for our feature film, DEFEND - CONSERVE - PROTECT and have raised around $100,000 AUD or about 50% of the ambitious goal. We aim high but would have been happy with anything over 40% and we have achieved this, THANKS TO YOU.

The past 12 months there has been many fund raising going on with Sea Shepherd around the world and social media continues to be our biggest method to reach the four corners of the world with our activities.

To give you some perspective just in social media campaigns myself and Captain Paul Watson​ have raised around $400,000 AUD that I can recall in a few campaigns alone, and while there is a ton of effort to coordinate all these various social media systems to get the best results, our expenditure on doing this has effectively been $0! Many times some people suggested we look to maybe spend money advertising or otherwise and I always resist while explaining if we "game the system carefully we should be able to do it for nothing" and while it gets harder and harder to do, we still have managed to hit all our social media fund raising goals so far. More money for saving the oceans directly!

I want to give a special thanks to Captain Paul Watson who works with me every day to make this happen whom completely trusts my judgement. I also want to send a special thanks to Jeff Hansen​ and Adam Burling​ for also supporting my efforts and I hope the results speak for themselves. I'd like to thank my lovely lady Becks Kate​ for putting up with my never ending late all nighters and crazy working hours especially while pregnant! Also want to thank all my coworkers around the world that spend every day tirelessly working on all the various projects we have going on especially Alana Tompson​ whom did some of the graphics and videos and Michael Beasley V​ whom work is always super! But most importantly I want to thank ALL OF YOU that continuously support our social media campaigns to raise funds for our activities and awareness and we, as a movement, cannot function otherwise.

Now to get making this movie!! check out www.seashepherd.org.au/movie if you haven't seen what it's about.

Pat yourselves on the back, you deserve it!

Doesn't anybody realise what they are doing? I am from Iceland and I hear news the events like sinking"illegal"whaling boats, going around Faroe island destroying property of the whalers trying to feed there family and ruining ancient, special celebrations of getting food on there dish. Now try to imagine a group that goes around The US every year saving turkeys from being killed so the Americans could not get there thanks giving meal.THAT WOULD BE A DISASTER.Everybody would hate the and they would be illegal in the States. That is basically the same with sea shepherds but they are worse because they are global Criminals!! PS. I LOVE DOLPHINS(on my plate)

I thought this was an excellent organization until I received an unsolicited telemarketing call to my cell phone from the Sea Shepard Conservation Society. My first pet peave is destruction of our ocean life. My second pet peave is telemarketers and phone solicitors. Even though I am registered with the US Government Do-Not-Call list, The Sea Shepard Conservation society chose to overlook this and had the gall to call anyway. I will never donate again.
Response from the owner - 2 years ago
Hi Pepper, sorry to hear that but we don't run a calling program here in Australia. It may have been in USA however if people are called they are supposedly on the membership list, so maybe you were on that? I know we hate to bother people without their permission and yes we hate telemarketers too. Apologies!
