Anyone who watches Whales Wars on Animal Planet knows who the Sea Shepherds are. For those who don’t, The Sea Shepherds are an all volunteer organization led by Captain Paul Watson. The show follows the Sea Shepherds on various missions to try and protect whales, in whale sanctuaries, from whaling forces such as the Japanese Whaling Fleet. The Sea Shepherds approach is always non-violent, can’t say the same for the whalers though. If you haven’t watched the show, you should check it out Friday nights, I watch it all the time!
