The first time I heard about the Sea Shepherd Society, it was 1993. I was 20, a commercial fisher, slaughtering thousands of fish every year, killing all forms of sea life I came across, including birds and sharks. I was the epitome of cruelty.
In 2001, I read Peter singer's 'Animal Liberation' and never again ate meat. In 2010, I joined Sea Shepherd as a member and now I am volunteering my time to help them achieve their goals.
Remember this, when someone tells you that people don't change.
