Sea Shepherd Lodges Conflict of Interest Complaint with CITES

Hammerhead and diversSea Shepherd Global’s Director for Asia, Gary Stokes, has lodged a formal complaint with the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) Australia, highlighting a conflict of interest in relation to Australian-based research and consultancy company, Fishwell Consulting.

In the complaint, Stokes points to two reports prepared by Dr. Ian Knuckey and Matt Koopman of Fishwell Consulting. In 2014, Knuckey and Koopman prepared a report advising the Australian Government on the sustainable harvesting of CITES Appendix II shark species. At the same time, the Fishwell Consulting scientists were advising Hong Kong based airline, Cathay Pacific Airways, on how they could ensure the legal exportation of Australian shark fins for the Chinese market.

Australian Government ignores thousands of people calling for intervention on whaling

333 is the number of whales proposed to be killed this summer  in Antarctic waters. The Australian Government must act and send a ship  to oppose the slaughter. In just over a month more than 7,000 people have emailed Environment  Minister, Greg Hunt, calling on the Australian Government to send a ship to oppose the slaughter of whales in Antarctica. 

“The Japanese Government's whaling fleet is at this moment hunting in  Antarctic waters. Their target is 333 whales. The planned slaughter goes against both international and Australian law, yet the Australian  Government sits idle despite previously promising to send a ship to intervene,” said Sea Shepherd Australia's Managing Director, Jeff Hansen.
