VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE!

 

The Canberra Chapter is excited to announce that we have a new coordinator- And doubly excited that our previous coordinator is staying on with the Canberra team to help Sea Shepherd defend our oceans.

Our new coordinator is Sam, who has been a volunteer for Sea Shepherd since early 2013. She is passionate about the oceans, and aims to breathe new life into Australia’s first inland chapter.

The Canberra Chapter is going to be at various music festivals, markets, community days and local events in Canberra and the South Coast (Batemans Bay, Eden, Moruya, Narooma, Ulladulla and more!) over the next twelve months.

Also, starting on the 15th of August 2014, we will be in the city (Garema Place) every Friday night from 5-8pm providing you an opportunity to grab some merchandise, find out info on our latest campaigns or to accept your donations.

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.

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.
