About the Speakers

Captain Peter Hammarstedt

Born in Sweden, Peter joined Sea Shepherd as soon as he was old enough to submit an application. He is the Director of Campaigns for Sea Shepherd Global, sits on the Board of Sea Shepherd Global, the Board of Sea Shepherd Netherlands and is Chairman of Sea Shepherd Australia. Peter also heads Sea Shepherd's illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (IUU) Taskforce for Africa.

 

In his fourteen years with Sea Shepherd, Peter has sailed the seven seas from the foreboding Labrador Coast to the treacherous Antarctic Continent, using direct intervention to save as many lives as possible from illegal whaling, sealing and destructive fishing practices.  Peter believes that in their capacity to suffer, animals are our equals and that when government fails in its responsibility to uphold the law, then it is the responsibility of compassionate people to fill the law enforcement vacuum.  

Jeff Hansen

Jeff Hansen is the Managing Director for Sea Shepherd Australia and a Director for Sea Shepherd Global. Jeff joined Sea Shepherd in 2006 to pursue his passion for marine conservation and protecting the natural world. Serving as a crew-member on two Antarctic whale defence campaigns, Jeff was instrumental in locating the illegal whaling fleet on both occasions.

 

Since Jeff’s baptism of fire with Sea Shepherd, he has not looked back. Jeff continues to play a pivotal role in driving Sea Shepherd both nationally and globally in tackling the three key threats to our oceans: illegal fishing, plastic pollution and climate change.

 

Jeff thinks that no matter the opposition, when ordinary people come together, extraordinary things can happen, and if there is one thing worth fighting for on this planet, it's life.
