Today Sea Shepherd mourns the loss of these whales. We have called an emergency meeting of the Global Board of Directors in Amsterdam this weekend to review our whale defense strategy in the Southern Ocean, and will release a more detailed statement on Monday morning.

Sea Shepherd Assists Liberian Coast Guard in Arrest of Cargo Vessel on Suspicion of Identity Fraud and IUU Fishing

Liberian Coast Guard approaching the Reefer M/V Lian Run. Photo: Alejandra Gimeno/Sea Shepherd Global.On March 21st, after receiving intelligence that a refrigerated cargo vessel was suspected of transmitting a fraudulent identity outside the Port of Monrovia, the Liberian Coast Guard assisted by Sea Shepherd crew and Israeli maritime advisors and conservationists boarded the 93-meter Sierra Leone-flagged motor vessel (M/V) Lian Run.

The Automatic Identification System (AIS), a navigational aid which a vessel uses to transmit its identifying information, such as name and radio call sign, was transmitting an IMO number that did not exist in any record. IMO numbers are unique identifiers that remain linked to a vessel throughout its lifetime to improve the safety of life at sea and reduce maritime fraud.

Western Australia's GAMEX fishing competition damaging reputation of region with catch of 4m Tiger Shark

Tiger Shark hung up while still alive as part of GAMEX. Photo provided.Exmouth resident and Sea Shepherd spokesperson Grace Keast said, "The annual competition, GAMEX, in Exmouth has previously taken place without conflicts between local conservationists and fishermen but this tide has just turned. The capture of a mature tiger shark measuring nearly 4 metres has caused an outcry in the local community."

"Local eco-tourism could be hard hit by such images. The industry that promotes best practice for swimming with mega-fauna being seen alongside the barbaric treatment of such a beautiful shark is a true contradiction of how we treat our life on Ningaloo Reef. We need to see more protection being offered to the apex predators of the oceans," said Ms Keast

Sea Shepherd Launches Operation Jeedara documentary trailer as part of their Bight defence campaign

Pearson Island

March 21, 2017 - Today Sea Shepherd launched the trailer for their up and coming movie entitled Operation Jeedara.

In August 2016, as part of the Great Australian Bight Alliance, Sea Shepherd sent their flagship vessel, the MY Steve Irwin deep into the Great Australian Bight.

It was an expedition to showcase the beauty of the region that would be lost if BP were allowed to drill for oil there and create a spill of similar or lesser size than their devastating spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.

What Sea Shepherd captured is nothing short of extraordinary, showcasing truly what the Australian spirit is all about.

This documentary is a visual feast that will entice people from all over the world to see one of the Earth’s best kept secrets.

Sea Shepherd and Paul De Gelder launches first aid shark response video

March 17, 2017, Fremantle, Western Australia

Training for first aid response to shark incidence. vital that the injured person is given help quickly. Sea Shepherd has been a strong advocate for many years for non lethal shark mitigation strategies, because the reality is that nets, drum-lines and shark cull's are proven to be merely a false sense of security that make matters worse from a public safety perspective and decreasing biodiversity in our oceans that we all  rely on.

On average, around five to ten shark fatalities occur around the globe per annum, and given the millions of people globally that enter the marine environment, its clear that we are not on the menu, just sometimes in the way. On average, around five to ten shark fatalities occur around the globe per annum, and given the millions of people globally that enter the marine environment every day, it is clear that we are not on the menu, just sometimes in the way.

Sharks are in big trouble around the world, with some populations crashing by more than 90%. Some species, such as the hammerhead shark, are facing a very real threat of extinction.
