The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has announced plans to shoot thousands of double-crested cormorants in the Columbia River Estuary beginning next year.

Much like California sea lions at the Columbia River, cormorants are being targeted simply because they eat salmon. Federal officials are claiming that these seabirds, protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, eat too many juvenile salmon, as well as steelhead, as the fish migrate through the river estuary to the Pacific Ocean. The proposed cull program would claim the lives of 16,000 cormorants during their nesting season each year for four years. Unbelievably, oil will also be spread over cormorant eggs to suffocate the eggs and ensure that they do not hatch, putting oil into the bird nesting grounds and the river ecosystem. While the Army Corps emphasizes the increase in the East Sand Island double-crested cormorant population in recent years, populations of these birds in general have been declining and the sustainability of this large-scale cull is questionable at best.

This is madness and I can't believe this is happening just downstream from me. I work in the Columbia River Basin and work along the Columbia River just over the border on the Canadian side. I can walk down to the confluence of the Kootenai and Columbia in less than 10 minutes from my office. I'll send my opposition via email.

Commentary by Dan Haefner, First Mate, RV Odyssey

On the 20th of June, Pensacola was the recipient of yet another “present” from the oil-filled Gulf of Mexico - a 1000-pound tar mat washed up in Ft. Pickens Park. Tar balls wash up almost every day along the coast between Pensacola Beach and Ft. Pickens, but sometimes a large mat is uncovered by waves.

Operation GrindStop 2014 has been underway for almost a month. Many volunteers from all over the world are joining us to stand with and for the pilot whales here in the Danish Faroe Islands. No whales have been killed in the Faroe Islands since we arrived. We’re expanding our ground teams in hopes of keeping it that way.

There is no way to know if whales will die tomorrow.

We need you. The pilot whales need you.
We are here until October 1. Please consider applying to be part of the onshore crew.

The second leg of our Operation Toxic Gulf campaign was quite extraordinary. When I decided to write a blog about the leg, it quickly became apparent that I could not justify cramming it all into one entry, and so it was split into two. This blog documents the first half of the leg.

The crew of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and Ocean Alliance’s Gulf of Mexico research campaign, Operation Toxic Gulf, will be docked at Palafox Pier in Pensacola, Fla. starting today through June 23, 2014. Ocean Alliance’s research vessel RV Odyssey — home for the duration of the campaign — will be open to the public for ship tours this weekend on June 21 and 22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The crew will also be available to speak to visitors and media about the critical work being done on this campaign to document the long-term effects of the BP oil spill and toxic oil dispersants on sperm whales and other Gulf wildlife.

SeaWorld LLC quietly submitted an application to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in August 2012, requesting the import of captive Pacific white-sided dolphin, Kirara from Kamogawa SeaWorld in Japan. Just as quietly, in a federal register notice released Sunday night but dated for Monday June 7th, the NOAA has granted SeaWorld their permit to import this dolphin for “public display”.
The permit is open until June 30th, 2017 and SeaWorld could import Kirara at any time before that date

Commentary by Sea Shepherd Founder Captain Paul Watson

We don’t care what you call us, or what you think of us.

All your name calling, lies, accusations and hate rhetoric mean nothing.

Except to notify me to ban you from my page and to delete your words.

Hate us all you wish but it changes nothing. Sea Shepherd is dedicated to eradicating the obscenity of whaling worldwide. We equate the killing of whales with murder.

I had been up the mast for around an hour-and-a-half before something caught my eye in the periphery of my vision. I turned quickly, but whatever I saw had quickly disappeared beneath the waves. I continued looking in the general direction, quite far off of our port bow, and sure enough, a couple minutes later a large dark shape cut through the water heading straight at us! I couldn't immediately identify the species, but what I did know was that I had never seen it before, and that it was special.

More than 250 people attended the three-and-a-half-day event at a farm in South Woodstock, Vermont and it was an opportunity for people from Sea Shepherd national and regional groups around the world to meet and speak with each other.

Most importantly, the Summit established this one most imperative thing and that is the understanding that Sea Shepherd is an international movement. Sea Shepherd is no longer an organization; it is a collective of national Sea Shepherd entities under the umbrella of Sea Shepherd Global with Captain Alex Cornelissen as the Global Director.

Commentary by Scott West

From the outside, it is not possible to know and comprehend the thinking of a people numbering some 48,000 persons. The best one can do is to listen to what individual members of the population say and read what the officials post in an effort to understand.

What we can all agree upon is that, in most years, Faroese people intentionally kill hundreds of pilot whales, dolphins, and other small cetaceans in the Faroe Islands. We can also agree that this slaughter has been going on for hundreds of years.

What we are unable to agree upon is why this slaughter occurs.

+Vincent Velema Only cowards think they are brave and tough when they abuse a poor animal, but they are not brave, they are a poor humans whose lives are filled with a great void and are very miserable. It is easy to be a big male when your opponent is defenseless dog or any other animal.
