Photo: Sea Shepherd Global/Simon AgerThe marine conservation organization's flagship vessel the Steve Irwin departed Saturday from Seaworks, Williamstown in Melbourne, followed by its fast new patrol vessel the Ocean Warrior, which departed from Hobart, Tasmania on Sunday.

They're now on their way to the vast Southern Ocean in an effort to prevent the Japanese whaling fleet, which left Japan on November 18th, from killing its self-allocated quota of 333 Minke whales.

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.

Victory for the Whales in the Bight - BP Decides Not to Proceed with Great Australian Bight Exploration

Southern Right Whales at the head of the Great Australian Bight. This impact nursery was under threat by BP's plans to drill for oil, now it is safe after an amazing community effort to protect this unique marine ecosystem.Today is a very joyous day for the whales, sharks, seals, dolphins, penguins and other incredible marine life that call the Great Australian Bight home, not to mention the communities we have met on Operation Jeedara who hold the Bight so precious to their hearts from a perspective of their livelihoods, way of life, and simply a love of the natural world.

One of the world’s most significant southern right whale nurseries is safe and all of our supporters, donors, volunteers and small staff team should feel very proud of this lasting legacy in preserving what is one of the last great remote wilderness areas left on the planet. I have been lucky enough to visit the Galapagos, and the Great Australian Bight is Australia's Galapagos. The offshore islands like the Pearson Island Group, St Francis Isles, Bunda cliffs and Head of Bight, not to mention the remarkable Kangaroo Island -- this is wilderness and it’s as good as it gets.

NSW Should Reject QLD Premier's Offer of Shark Nets

NSW should reject QLD Premier's offer of the false sense of security provided by indiscriminate lethal shark control measures.

Two rare Japanese devilrays found in the Miami Beach nets in February this year demonstrate the indiscriminate nature of the shark nets.Queensland’s premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk yesterday offered a helping hand to NSW Premier Mike Baird with setting up a lethal and environmentally destructive system for nets and drum lines to cull sharks in northern NSW. Ms Palaszczuk said, “We have the technology, we have the skills. I am prepared to work with the NSW Government to extend our drum lines and shark nets down the northern NSW beaches.”

Sea Shepherd Australia’s Queensland Apex Harmony Coordinator, Jonathan Clark called on Premier Baird to reject the offer as the deadly drum lines are not proven effective in increasing beach safety and are highly destructive to marine environments. He said, “There are several effective non-lethal methods that ought to be seriously trialled including Shark Spotters as indicated by Premier Baird’s own government’s CARDNO review.”

Sea Shepherd Global Announces its 11th Antarctic Whale Defense Campaign: Operation Nemesis

Two Minke whales in the AntarcticThe marine conservation group Sea Shepherd Global is sending its vessels down to the Southern Ocean this December on its 11th direct-action whale defense campaign.

A 2014 landmark ruling by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague declared the Japanese whaling program in the Antarctic not scientific in nature, despite their claims of hunting the whales for scientific research. The Japanese were also found in contempt of the Australian Federal Court for killing protected whales in the Australia Whale Sanctuary.
