OPERATION NEMESIS UPDATE: Images of Japanese Poachers caught with Dead Whale Go Viral

Photo: Glenn LockitchIn the 48 hours following Sea Shepherd’s discovery of a Japanese whaling vessel poaching in the Australian Whale Sanctuary, images of the harpooned minke whale on its deck have gone viral, generating international outrage, as well as criticism from the Australian government.

Photographs and video footage taken from the helicopter of Sea Shepherd’s MV Steve Irwin show the crew of the Nisshin Maru factory ship hastily concealing the slaughtered whale with a tarp, while the crew of the nearby Yushin Maru scrambled to cover their harpoon guns. But the damage was already done. “Once again Sea Shepherd caught the Japanese whale poachers with blood on their hands,” said Sea Shepherd Global Director, Captain Alex Cornelissen. The images immediately went viral on Twitter and Facebook, reaching over 4.5 million views by Tuesday morning, and has been picked up by all major international press outlets in the US, Europe, Asia, and Australia/New Zealand.

Sea Shepherd Catches Japanese Poaching Fleet with Dead Whale in Australian Sanctuary

First dead Antarctic minke whale to be documented since the ICJ ruling against Japanese whale poachers After five weeks of patrolling the Southern Ocean, Sea Shepherd has located the Japanese whale poachers’ factory whaling vessel in the Australian Whale Sanctuary with a dead minke whale on its flensing deck, the first to be documented since the International Court of Justice ruled against their whaling operations in the Antarctic in 2014.

The Nisshin Maru was spotted by the helicopter of Sea Shepherd’s MY Steve Irwin at 12:34AM GMT (11:34AM AEDT) at a position of 64 57.6S - 085 09.6E, within the Australian Whale Sanctuary. When the helicopter approached, the Nisshin Maru crew scrambled to hide the slaughtered whale with a tarp, while the fleet’s harpoon ships Yushin Maru and Yushin Maru #2 quickly covered their harpoons.

Photo: Sea Shepherd Global / Josh ReynoldsToday the Prime Minister of Japan plans to meet with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in Sydney. Sea Shepherd calls on Mr Turnbull to take action on ending illegal whaling on behalf of this whale loving nation.  The Turnbull Government in Opposition promised to send a vessel to oppose whaling by Japan, stating that “we had blood in the water and a blind eye in Canberra", yet there has not even been a word of opposition to this summer's planned slaughter. Currently Sea Shepherd has two vessels, the Ocean Warrior and the Steve Irwin patrolling the Southern Ocean in order to halt whaling in Australia's waters by Japan.

Operation Nemesis Campaign Update

January 9, 2017

Ocean Warrior and MY Steve Irwin meet up for a supplies exchange and strategy session in the Southern Ocean. Photo by Simon Ager/Sea Shepherd GlobalWe are now just over a month into our 11th Antarctic Whale Defense Campaign, Operation Nemesis, with the MY Steve Irwin and the Ocean Warrior currently patrolling the Southern Ocean Sanctuary to stop illegal whaling.

After just three weeks, on December 22nd the Ocean Warrior discovered one of the Japanese whaling fleet’s harpoon ships hiding behind an iceberg. Caught with its harpoon uncovered, the Yushin Maru was clearly in the middle of hunting for their self-allocated 333 minke whales. Interrupted from its hunt, the harpoon vessel tried trailing the Ocean Warrior instead, but was quickly outrun by Sea Shepherd’s fast new ship, a first in any Southern Ocean campaigns.

Sea Shepherd Captain Found Guilty of Causing ‘Unnecessary suffering to dolphins’ by Danish Court

Sea Shepherd Crew of the MV Spitfire from left to right: Celine Le Diouron and Marion Selighini both from France and Captain Jessie Treverton from the UK.Friday, November 25th, the Danish court in Tórshavn, Faroe Islands found Sea Shepherd Captain Jessie Treverton of the UK guilty of breaching Faroese animal welfare laws by causing 'unnecessary suffering' to a pod of dolphins.

Each year over 800 pilot whales and other small cetaceans are regularly slaughtered in the Faroe Islands in a practice known as the grindadráp, which Sea Shepherd has actively opposed since the 1980s.

Sea Shepherd slams Baird's 1940's backwards approach to saving lives - merely another false sense of security

Whale caught in shark netIn response to the news today that NSW Premier Mike Baird will approve shark mesh nets for Ballina NSW, Sea Shepherd Australia had the following response.

"There is no way that the NSW Government can justify calling this a 'trial'. Shark nets are old technology. We know how they work. We know what they will do. Upwards of 80% of the catch will be by-catch and that will include dolphins from the Richmond River pod. We know that shark bite incidents will still occur as they have at netted beaches in Queensland. These nets will merely give surfers a dangerous false sense of security," remarked Jonathan Clark Queensland Coordinator - Apex Harmony Campaign.
