Sea Shepherd History
Standing fast on the frontlines of marine conservation since 1977
Sea Shepherd is an international marine conservation movement that was founded in 1977 with the mission to defend, conserve and protect the ocean.
Sea Shepherd Australia began in 2007. The country’s southern cities of Perth, Melbourne and Hobart all became launching sites to Antarctica for Sea Shepherd’s Southern Ocean Whale Defence Campaigns. Today, we have passionate and dedicated volunteers in every major capital city and regional towns all around the country.
