Past Events:

 

Sea Shepherd Adelaide @ Ash Gunwald/ Filthy Lucre 20th March 2014 Ramsgate Hotel

As Mad March comes to an end, Sea Shepherd Adelaide had the opportunity to attend the Ash Grunwald and Filthy Lucre Gig held at the Ramsgate Hotel.

Ash Grunwald is an ARIA Nominated Australian Blues Musician who has won several APRA Awards; as well as being a massive Sea Shepherd Supporter. Between sets, our volunteers were run off their feet from the mad rush for merchandise. We had several patrons come up to our stall, asking how they can help and volunteer for Sea Shepherd as well. We all had a blast this event, enjoying the music whilst selling merchandise and spreading the word about Sea Shepherd, and our latest campaign, Operation Relentless.

Sea Shepherd Adelaide would like to thank Ash Grunwald, Filthy Lucre, and Wasabi Touring for the opportunity. Special thanks to staff at the Ramsgate Hotel for their hospitality

Sea Shepherd Adelaide @ Clean Up Australia Day 2nd March 2014

 Even though it is mad March in South Australia, there is always time to participate in Clean up Australia Day.

This year we really focussed on all the small plastic items as well as the usual cigarette butts fiasco. The kids came along and made it a game to see “ Who can pick up the most rubbish??”

At the end we also found a dollar coin. We let the kids decide what to do with it, and they donated it to Operation Relentless and the campaign to stop whale poaching.

We look forward to a bigger and better clean up again next year.

Sea Shepherd Adelaide @ Soundwave March 1st 2014

Sea Shepherd Adelaide were invited to hold a stall at the Soundwave festival on Saturday 1st March 2014.  The gates opened at 10.30am with eager patrons running to get their tokens for the signing tent.  The day started with many festival goers walking by and nodding their heads at us, shouting comments such as “love ya work guys” and “awesome job”.  The tie dye t-shirts were the biggest seller on the day and we completely sold out of them! It was fantastic to look into the crowd and see a river of Sea Shepherd tie dye shirts! The tie dye shirts were purchasedt by EVERYONE! Young, old, heavy hard rockers and party bopper kids, there were no boundaries and that stood out.  The stall was a hive of activity with a constant buzz of people from all walks of life talking to us about their knowledge of Sea Shepherd or lack of. We had an amazingly successful day taking around $5000 in merchandise sales and donations.

Sea Shepherd Adelaide @ Clipsal 500 Feb/ March 2014

 

Clipsal 500 is a world class event and was an amazing opportunity to educate on the world stage. The Sea Shepherd Adelaide volunteers were busy meeting a whole new demographic of punters and talking about our operations to protect the world’s oceans and the clients that inhabit them. Located on the Australian Defence Force oval, was the appropriate location for the volunteers of the Whales Navy. Thanks to the Clipsal 500 team and to Craig Dontas for having us.

Brighton Beach/ Bindara Reserve and Royalty Theatre  Square Peg Fringe Show

At 11am Sea Shepherd Adelaide met at the Brighton Jetty with Clancy the leader of ‘Beach Guardians’ collectively we had a successful haul of rubbish removed from the Beach and surrounding area and jetty. We had helpers from near and far, so many passers-by could not believe how much rubbish we were able to collect in such a short time. Thanks to Holdfast Council for allowing the event to take place and a huge shout out to the ‘Beach Guardians’ which made the event a success.

Later we attended Square Peg at the Royalty Theatre as part of the Fringe festival.  Our merchandise was popular and a great conversation starter. Thanks To Square Peg for being great supporters.

We were well received at both events and there was a great voice for the whales on “World Whale Day”.

Sea Shepherd Adelaide @ Mercury Cinema " Blackfish" Jan/ Feb 2014

Mercury Cinema invited Sea Shepherd Adelaide to the screenings of Blackfish over 4 weekends throughout January and February 2014.  The event brought a multitude of patrons from all walks of life to view the documentary. Sea Shepherd Adelaide provided a merchandise stall with information about Sea Shepherd the campaigns and how people can become involved. The event was also the perfect platform to display the Taiji Awareness Campaign due to the connections regarding the captive industry.  Many people discussed the current campaign in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary and voiced their support for Sea Shepherd. The Taiji Awareness Campaign offered the opportunity to further educate the public about the events unfolding in Taiji and how they can support the Cove Guardians.

Sea Shepherd Adelaide @ Scorcherfest Light Hotel Dec 22nd 2013    

Scorcher Fest is a great live music festival that gives bands the chance to perform in a live festival atmosphere, expand their audience base and meet other bands. This was definitely the case at the Light Hotel. There was a fantastic line up of both experienced performers and first timers, from a different mix of genres. From the acoustic set of Christian Andrew to metal band Burn Collect, and the awesome set by Sea Shepherd supporters Buskill Park.

Between sets we had the opportunity to chat with the punters and share the Sea Shepherd message, receiving some wonderfully encouraging support for Operation Relentless. Thank you to Andrew Cooper, Scorcher Fest and the Light Hotel for supporting Sea Shepherd Adelaide and allowing us to part of this great live music festival.

We had a perfect day for such an awesome event. This was a compact and very personal experience. Artists were walking around, 3 very busy stages, crazy skateboarders and trick bikes on the pipe, food stalls, punters of all ages rockin it out to a threatening sky. A little rain about but that just added to the mystery of the day. A massive shout out to Lynda and the Vans Team for putting on a great show.

Taiji Awareness Project:

Organic & Sustainable Market, Henley Beach 7th December 2013

Beautiful blue sky and a real summer feeling today in Adelaide and with the knowledge that the Killing Boats did not go out this morning in Taiji made for the start of an awesome day. We headed to Henley Beach this morning to present the Taiji Awareness Project to the Organic and Sustainable Market. The activity table was busy most of the morning with many children enjoying the Dolphin Colouring In with the message 'My Home is the Ocean'.

We shared our love for dolphins with the children and in return heard some beautiful dolphin encounters from them. We had great conversations with a handful of adults with the Taiji Awareness Display, some had heard about Taiji others had not. Today we were able to spread that awareness.

Captain Hammarstedt at Brighton Primary School November 8th 2013

Sea Shepherd Adelaide ran a “ Meet The Hammar” school competition. 25 words or less why you wanted the Captain at your School. We were overwhelmed by the response of South Australians and The Brighton Primary School won the right to host, and scare the pants off Peter. There were Hundreds of kids, parents and teachers, all packed into the gymnasium. We were all totally impressed with the level of awareness these students displayed as well as the schools charter of ocean conservation. They dearly thanked us for being there, but we also really thank the staff, parents and students of the Brighton Primary School for their inspiration and well wishes for Operation Relentless.

Sea Shepherd Adelaide @ Year 1 Whale Talk

I had the great pleasure on Friday 1st November to visit a local school down south to give a talk to a Year 1 class on whales. This Year 1 class have been looking at animals and extinction so a talk on whales was very fitting. What made this visit so special was that six year old Lucy came up with the idea of my visit and took it upon herself to organise it with her teacher and her mum. Lucy is very passionate about animals and the environment so I was extremely excited and happy to help Lucy with her idea. We had a great morning talking about whales and what Sea Shepherd does to help save the whales in the Southern Ocean. The children contributed to the talk and all enjoyed seeing photos of whales and our 4 Sea Shepherd Ships. It was a really enjoyable morning and I thank Lucy for inviting me to meet her class.

Steven Lennox has the voice of an angel and gave a beautiful passion filled performance.  Ciaram Granger casted his Blues and Roots musical spell with his sophiscated guitar playing and his misty resonant voice. Craig Atkins gave a moving performance with his style of roots, folk and blues and multi-instrumentalist original singer songwriters that encompassed lyrics with love and music with an environmental and social justice message. Richard Perso closed the night with his blend of Roots, Blues and Folk that combined songs of love, life and all that’s in between with his multi instrumental talent. Thanks to all the artists.

SA Whale Season Launch, Adelaide Museum

Sea Shepherd Adelaide was proud to be involved in opening the SA Whale watching season. The venue was the magnificent Adelaide Museum. South Australia has a history of whaling and it was quite surreal to be amongst the preserved skeletons in the amazing museum foyer. What was more amazing were the groups of school kids and their passion for whales and dolphins.
Thanks so much to the Adelaide Museum, SA Whale Centre and the Victor Harbour Council for their support.

Adelaide Roller Derby

The Atmosphere was electric for the 2013 opening bout of the Adelaide Roller Derby whereby the "Road Train Rollers" took on the "Salty Dolls". The live music set the scene and the athletes lived up to expectations. The Adelaide on shore crew were present with a stand and it was great to meet some of the fans and competitors who dropped by the stand to hear about the most successful Antarctic campaign to date.

The cream of these organisations gathered in Bonython Park to meet with the public and give the public a chance to walk their dogs together in the park.

" Food for the Fleet"

With the Ships arriving back at their Southern Port of Williamstown Victoria, Sea Shepherd Adelaide put out the call to "Help the Sea Shepherd Fleet" with much needed provisions. Three vehicles took the 8 hour journey loaded up with hundreds of kilos of food to meet up for a mid-morning reunion with old and new friends.

Crews from the ships worked alongside the On Shore Volunteers to split the food 3 ways. This was followed by a kind invitation for lunch aboard the Bob Barker and personal tours.

Thanks to Woolworths, Vegan Online, A E Cranwell and Sons, Lenswood SA and the people of South Australia for being so supportive. Sea Shepherd Adelaide has a new saying.." If You Donate, Then We Will Deliver"

Twisted Echidna Launch Party

Sea Shepherd Adelaide was asked by Lorna, Richi and Ian from " Twisted Echidna Booking Agency" to be part of their launch into music promotion. To celebrate, they floated the idea of donating the profits to Sea Shepherd Australia as well as us having a stall. The atmosphere was " Arcade Lane" in the " Adelaide Fringe" district. Three great bands, the Sea Shepherd logo projected on stage and a party atmosphere made for a successful night all round. The guys from twisted have ideas to make it a regular thing in support of the world's oceans, and the Adelaide Chapter will be there to assist with education.

Thanks to Rhys and the team at "Twisted".

Oz Comic-Con

 

Following on from the overwhelming success of the Perth Chapter, the Adelaide Chapter of Sea Shepherd Australia was keen to represent the oceans equally as well.

We were totally taken back by the knowledge of patrons and continued support across the two days. It was truly a testament to the groundswell of supporters across the globe within different demographics. The highlight of the weekend was certainly a visit to the stall by Richard Dean Anderson (aka MacGyver and General O'Neil from Stargate)and Paul Brown from Langley Legends. Richard and Paul are on Sea Shepherd's Advisory Board. The Sea Shepherd stall was certainly a busy affair after their appearances.

Thanks so much to Oz Comic-Con and Rand for having us.

Clean Up Australia Day Glenelg Beach

Following on from our 2012 event that had a handful in total, 2013 was an enormous improvement with about 80 strong. We were contacted by two schools and another group of fantastic Adelaide people, wanting to band together for the day. This year was the theme of really looking for those small pieces of plastics that inherently get into the digestive tracts of birds and fish.

In all we collected hundreds of kilos of various items and our plight made the National News. As usual cigarette butts were the most offending item and there was lots of interest and questions from the general public. Although this is an everyday issue, SS Adelaide will ensure a much larger turnout in 2014 in support of our local environment.

Capri Screening of " Peaceable Kingdom"

It was a great opportunity to work with other Adelaide based NGOs. The working group managed to pack the Capri cinema for an amazing night which includes a compelling and emotional presentation from Philip.

The Brighton Jetty Classic

Adelaide has a huge history of beach culture and surf clubs. The Brighton Jetty Classic is South Australia's largest open water swim.

We were so proud to be part of this event and be placed squarely in between the entry and exit points for the swimmers.

It was great to see all the swimmers wrapping themselves up in our Black JR towels and we were glad to see so many informed people of all ages at the event.

We would dearly love to Thank Lisa, Trevor and Scott from the club for not only having us but locking us in for 2014. Please see www.brightonjettyclassic.com for swim results.

Tour Down Under Aldinga Beach Party

Sea Shepherd Adelaide attended the Santos Tour Down Under UCI World Tour Event this year at Aldinga "beach party". The day started off with riders cycling past the beach esplanade festivities with a straight through pass mid-morning, followed by two sprint challenges. This gave the festivities a fantastic atmosphere for the large crowd of cycling fans, which also provided an exciting environment for Sea Shepherd outreach and merchandise. We were approached by many local and interstate amateur cyclists who were eager to purchase Sea Shepherd cycling tops and bibs. We even had a special appearance from Ali and Lee who model the cycling gear on the Sea Shepherd Australia website. A huge thank you to Aldinga for inviting us.

Big Day Out Adelaide

Big Day Out certainly lived up to its name for the Sea Shepherd crew in Adelaide. A 7am set up and an a late pack up proved successful over the long day, with huge amounts of foot traffic thanks to the location near the main stage area. The crew chatted with a lot of excited revelers, who showed their support with donations and by purchasing merchandise. The Jolly Roger and slides depicting some of the Sea Shepherd campaigns were shown on the large stage screens before the Red Hot Chili Peppers hit the stage, the fans responded with a rush of activity at the Sea Shepherd tent. Thanks to the BDO organisers and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers for the opportunity to attend this awesome event, we hope to return next year.

SSCS Adelaide Dolphin Day

The Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources invited Sea Shepherd Adelaide to take part in the Dolphin Day held at Port Adelaide.

It was a day for the public to come along and learn a bit more about the South Australia's unique Port river dolphins, but also a number of scientific talks took place in conjunction with the SA Maritime Museum.

The Port river dolphins swam past the stalls to give their support to the day. The Sea Shepherd on shore crew had a great time taking part in the dolphin day and it is always great to meet people interested in finding out what they can do to in support of the oceans and marine ecology.

SSCS Adelaide Glenelg Backpackers Gig

Sea Shepherd Adelaide was invited by Voice of Trees to attend the album launch for their EP 'enChanted' on the 5th of January at Glenelg Backpackers.

It was an amazing and intimate venue, which shared the music of three fantastic musicians, their fans and the Sea Shepherd crew. We were asked to supply a Sea Shepherd back drop which included our large Jolly Roger flag being proudly displayed behind Voice of Trees instruments and centre stage.

Our stall here was a great success and wouldn't have been possible without the continued support from Voice of Trees, James Abberley and Ciaram Granger.

Thank you to all who attended, to Kym Higham and also to Glenelg Backpackers especially Holly and Tony for having us.

Deep South Blues festival

Sea Shepherd Adelaide was invited to attend the first Deep South Blues and Roots Festival held at The Governor Hindmarsh. Sea Shepherd fans and supporters including " The Timbers" band made for a fantastic all day event. The festival was a great event to spread the Sea Shepherd word to over 4OO people within this one event - many of whom had not been exposed to the SSCS before. Through this great event we were able to continue our protection, conservation and defence education and engage many new patrons. We had a fantastic day of donor support, information and educational chats. What a great day for SSCS indeedy!

World Vegan day

With the tide turning in Adelaide, SSCS is being invited more and more to local events. The World Vegan day was such a wonderful Family event. The demographic was amazing, giving us hope about what the next generation will do to support Ocean Conservation. We had lots of fun with raffles and outreach on the day. There was an amazing arrangement of fun and fare on show.

SSCS Adelaide looks forward to being involved with such amazing people again next year.

Save the Sea Annual Fundraising Event 
Higher Ground, 9 Light Square, Adelaide

Adelaide welcomed Captain Peter Hammarstedt and SSCS director Jeff Hansen to Adelaide. Jeff came to Adelaide in June 2012 when the Marine Parks Bill was introduced, so it was fitting that on his next visit the Marine Parks were realised.

Adelaide showed that Ocean Conservation is a high priority, and the crowd was well represented by musicians, artists and a wide variety of people from political and environmental circles. 6 months in the planning paid off, with bands playing at an amazing venue at Higher Ground. Adelaide Artists contributed over 30 pieces of work to fundraising. Raffles, Auctions, and amazing music all made for a great night of fun and education. Adelaide was blessed to hear a song written especially for SSCS by " The Timbers". This song has now been played at many events and is due for release soon.

Thank you Adelaide and all that hold Ocean Survival as a top priority, for now and into the future.

Common Roots Festival
"The Common" Montacute

Sea Shepherd were proud to be invited to the exciting Common Roots Festival that was held on the" Common" which is an area of land that with much discussion and lots of pressure from the community they were able to secure a 25yr lease for the land. The community had to show that the land is being used and that maintenance/development is continually happening. So the community held the festival to raise much needed funds for the maintenance of the grounds and the hall that is on the grounds.

Fishermans' Wharf Markets, Port Adelaide

Sunday the 24th of June was Sea Shepherd's first appearance at the Port Adelaide Fishermans' Warf Markets. We set up our stall bright and early and straight away had people asking about when we would be there next.

We had a lot of interest from the public. People stopped to talk with us about Sea Shepherd's various campaigns.  We sold a decent amount of merchandise on the day, and got a lot of coin donations. Other stall holders informed us that the markets were pretty quiet on the day and considering this I think we did a great job of promoting and raising funds for Sea Shepherd.
It was a great day with some really passionate people.

The market is on Sundays and public holidays 10am – 5pm. For more info on the markets please contact the market directly on 08)8341-2040   There is something for everyone and dolphin sight-seeing cruises run from this location!!

Whaletime Playtime Festival

The Annual Whaletime Playtime Festival celebrated the beginning of Whale Season.  Sea Shepherd Adelaide had a stall there for the first time and will continue to do so every year.

The Whaletime Playtime Festival is a festival for kids with lots of entertainment like singing and puppet shows, jumping castles and rides, horse and camel rides.  In order to keep with the KIDS theme, we had a colouring-in competition which proved very popular.   My gorgeous little English Cocker Spaniel, Lulu, proudly donned a Sea Shepherd kids t-shirt and wandered around the festival.  Every child that gave her a pat was directed to our stall for the colouring-in competition by my husband, Dean. This was fantastic as it brought Mums and Dads to our stall.  We had a lot of interest and questions, not only from Mums and Dads, but much older people and teenagers as well.

Heaps of fun was had by all and we look forward to doing it all again next year!!!

Adelaide Roller Derby

Once again the people of Adelaide showed much interest in all things Sea Shepherd. There were many expressions of support for our Captain Paul Watson as well as ongoing support for what we stand for.

It was so great to see families out and about supporting such a fun event. The Salty Dolls defeated Geoff's team the Road Train Rollers, but the real winner of the night was Ocean Conservation.

We look forward to being involved at future events.

Clean up Australia Day

Sea Shepherd Adelaide  volunteers teamed up with Tammy Franks and Jamnes Danenberg from The Greens. They decided to tackle the Glenelg beach area for the clean up.

About a dozen volunteers scoured the walking track along the beach and managed to collect lots of cigarette butts, bottled, lighters, plastic cups etc. The small group of dedicated people attracted some attention and were able to sell some SSCS Merch as well to the locals as well.

We hope to see more volunteers next year.
