The following is a message from Sea Shepherd Society...






We have never had a busier year, nor a year in which we have achieved so much in terms of raising awareness, saving the lives of so many fish, whales, dolphins, and other marine species, and costing the poachers so many millions of dollars in illegally obtained profits.


In 2010, Sea Shepherd accomplished the following:
  • Saved the lives of 528 whales because of our interventions against the Japanese whaling fleet during Operation Waltzing Matilda.
  • Cut the nets and freed 800 bluefin tuna that are endangered and were illegally caught in the Mediterranean during Operation Blue Rage.
  • Interfered with the killing of pilot whales in the Faeroe Islands during Operation Grindstop.
  • Installed a surveillance system in the Galapagos that enables the Ecuadorian police and the Galapagos Park rangers to monitor all vessel traffic in the National Park Marine Reserve.
  • Put a long-term crew of "Cove Guardians" on the ground in Taiji, Japan to bring constant global attention to the dolphin slaughter.
  • Flew into no-fly zones in the Gulf of Mexico to expose negligence and lies by BP after the oil spill.
These are just some of the highlights from this year. It has indeed been a busy one! We could not accomplish so much without supporters like you. It is expensive to protect the oceans from those who pillage and plunder. 

For the sake of the oceans and all the defenseless animals we defend, please support Sea Shepherd in 2011 by making a donation today.

Thanks friends. Peace and love in 2011!
