But NOT the illegal Japanese whaling fleet... :-(
CEO of Sea Shepherd Global, Captain Alex Cornelissen, has condemned Japan’s plans to return to the Southern Ocean to slaughter whales this austral summer.
“The pristine waters of the Southern Ocean are once again under threat from poachers,” said Cornelissen. “We would like to remind the Japanese government that the whales of the Southern Ocean are protected by international law, by Australian law and by Sea Shepherd. As such, any violation of the sanctity of the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary or the Australian Whale Sanctuary will be regarded as a criminal act.” Click below to read the full article.
An affidavit provided by Sea Shepherd’s Captain Peter Hammarstedt was submitted as evidence in a contempt case against Japanese whaling company, Kyodo Senpaku Kaisha Ltd (Kyodo), in the Australian Federal Court in Sydney, Australia. The evidence has helped the court to issue a $1million fine to the whalers. To read more click below and share!

Sea Shepherd is inviting its supporters around the world to be a part of conservation history, announcing a worldwide competition to name the newest addition to its ocean defense fleet.
In January 2015, the Dutch National Postcode Lottery, the People's Postcode Lottery in the United Kingdom and the Svenska PostkodLotteriet in Sweden together granted €8.3 million to Sea Shepherd for the construction of a new Patrol Vessel.
Now, we invite all of our supporters around the world to help us write the next chapter in Sea Shepherd’s history by naming our new Patrol Vessel!
Find out how. Visit our competition page here: http://www.seashepherdglobal.org/special-events/name-the-ship-competition.html
*Only one entry per person is permitted. Times, dates and location of the launch ceremony are to be confirmed. See competition T&Cs for more details.

Sea Shepherd’s Flagship, the Steve Irwin, has departed Fremantle, Western Australia for the Southern Ocean. The ship’s departure marks the official commencement of the organization’s 12th Southern Ocean Defense Campaign, Operation Icefish 2015-16.
Sea Shepherd will employ direct-action techniques to fill a law enforcement void that continues to be exploited by the Japanese whale poaching fleet and the two remaining illegal toothfish vessels, Viking and Kunlun (Taishan), which continue to threaten the survival of the fragile and wild Antarctic ecosystem.
“The Steve Irwin will be the only proactive enforcement presence in Antarctica once again this year. The shadowlands of Antarctica are under threat and we are the only form of protection to the marine wildlife in these unregulated regions. Other than offering direct and immediate protection to the oceans, we intend to investigate and document the illegalities and work with law-enforcement agencies, once again, to aid and close out existing investigations worldwide,” - Capt. Sid Chakravarty.

Japan has declared war on the whales in the Southern Ocean. Their fleet is en route to the Southern Ocean NOW, in abject disrespectful defiance of the International Court of Justice.
The signatory nations to the relevant conventions have not done anything but talk.
No other NGO, aside from Sea Shepherd, is doing anything to intervene.
Japan returns to the killing fields with an arrogant confidence that they will be unopposed.
The question is what will Sea Shepherd do about this egregious and illegal invasion of the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary?
Captain Paul Watson, founder of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, a U.S.-based 501(c)(3) non-profit marine conservation organization, filed a full petition yesterday with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IAHRC) in Washington, D.C., accusing Costa Rica of using the judicial system to violate his rights and derail his conservation efforts.
If successful, this petition could bring an end to a lengthy battle between Captain Watson and the Costa Rican government, including potential dismissal of the Interpol Red Notice it issued in 2012 requesting his arrest and extradition.
