Facts & Figures

Did You Know?

Illegal fishing accounts for an estimated 11-26 million tons of the annual catch of fish globally.

In 2 years, we collected 1,233,595 pieces of rubbish from our beaches in 279 beach clean-ups. 80% of these items were plastic.

If not for whaling, ship strikes, pollution and entanglement in fishing gear, some whales could live for over 200 years.

Humpback whales communicate with complex songs that can be as loud as the sound of a jet plane (around 150 decibels).

Around the world, between 70 and 100 million sharks die each year through fishing, shark finning and shark mitigation programs. 

For every pound of trawled shrimp, up to six pounds of "bycatch” is also captured, including turtles and dolphins.

12-15 million tons of plastic ends up in the ocean every year, killing one million seabirds and 100,000 marine animals.

  • If the oceans die, we die.

    Overfishing, poaching and environmental waste have destroyed marine populations and polluted our seas. International laws and agreements exist to protect our fragile marine ecosystems, but enforcement is lacking.

  • We do what international authorities can’t … or won’t.

    When existing laws to protect the world’s oceans and marine wildlife are not enforced, Sea Shepherd engages in direct action campaigns, patrolling the high seas and working with national authorities to tackle illegal fishing in sovereign waters.
