Upcoming Events 2013
Please check back here for upcoming events in the Canberra area! If you are interested in becoming an onshore volunteer please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
A Big Thank you Canberra! Your generosity has been amazing. Not just financially, but your words of support and signing up to receive mission updates maintains our strength. We are passionate and committed to saving the whales and will continue our Canberra stalls throughout the winter evenings.
Your contributions go towards repairing the fleet while Sea Shepherd prepares for our next mission, Operation Relentless. Ideally it's a mission we won't have to undertake since Australia has taken Japan to court to put a stop to this so called scientific research programme.Until we know the outcome though, we assume the Japanese death star Nisshin Maru will be down in our whale sanctuary hunting and killing whales. We won't stand for that , we want whales swimming up and down our coast, not being served on sushi plates in Japan.

A Night for the Whales - Tilley's and the Front Bar
It was quite a balmy night in the Nation's Capital for what turned out to be an awesome event. First, Captain Paul Watson began his visit with a traditional indigenous smoke ceremony held at the Tent Embassy on the lawns of Old Parliament House. From there, we had a meet and greet with the Captain at the Front Bar. The main event, held at Tilley's Divine Cafe, was a huge success! We held both a live auction and silent auction, and a raffle of prizes that were generously donated by local artists and businesses. Paul, and Sea Shepherd's Australia Director, Jeff Hansen, spoke and answered questions put forward by the large crowd. After the main gig we headed back to the Front Bar to celebrate what was a fabulous night.
A big thanks goes out to Tilley's and the Front Bar for kindly donating their venues for our use, and another thanks to all the artists and businesses that donated to our auctions. Finally, a huge thank you to all the wonderful people that supported Sea Shepherd on the night and enabled us to raise significant funds for this year's Antarctic campaign, Operation No Compromise.
October 1st - 4th, 2010
Dragon Dreaming Festival
The Dragon Dreaming Festival celebrates art and nature, and the freedom of self expression in a safe, family friendly, tribal gathering not far from Canberra. From the family type, to the man dressed head-to-toe in wood and bark, we were happy to get to speak to a lot of Sea Shepherd supporters! We raised awareness for our cause and many funds for our campaigns. Thank you so much to the many people that generously donated.

Junior Girls Grammar Talk
Ellie and her class mates embarked on a project to discover who it was they most admired in life and felt inspired by the things that person had done. Ellie chose Peter Bethune and she contacted Sea Shepherd to ask us to come to her school to talk about what we do and how the children can be more involved and supportive.
Thank you Ellie. It was a pleasure meeting such bright young your girl as yourself. Keep following your heart.

Rally with 'The Greens' for Captain Pete Bethune's release
Sea Shepherd Canberra attended a gathering outside the Japanese embassy in the ACT in order to send a message to Japanese Foreign Minister Katsuya Okado that whaling is unacceptable, and also to encourage the Australian Government to keep its promise of taking Japan to international court over the illegal slaughter of whales in the Southern Ocean.
