Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  The first 27 years of life are ruled by the sum of the first three letters of the name.

Nici Higginbottom

14 (N is the 14th letter of the alphabet) + 9 (i is the 9th letter of the alphabet) + 3 (c is the 3rd letter of the alphabet) = 26

So the number 26 rules her first twenty-seven years of life.

26 = Celebrity.  Television series.  Good looking.

Eric Young cruised the Illinois River hunting the high-jumping Asian carp, while armed with a pitchfork and wearing a protective football helmet.

These greedy, hungry, flying-fish torpedoes are threatening to invade the Great Lakes, slapping fisherman along the way as the leap out of the water at the sound of boat motors.

“It’s like a 30-pound bean bag smashing into you at 30 miles an hour, so it doesn’t hurt, but you’re well aware you just got hit with a fish,” Young said.

Viewers might recognize him as “Showtime” Eric Young when he anchored down in the ring as a pro-wrestler, but now he has set sail for a whole new challenge. From Florida to California, Young is adrift in the world of extreme fishing, learning all of the bizarre ways to snag the big one — such as using paddleboards to reel in sharks or to freedive spear-fishing for striped bass — on Animal Planet’s TV series, “Off the Hook: Extreme Catches.”

Young called fishing “American ingenuity at its finest” and said the show is about “meeting these people that are tenacious and hardworking” with an “interesting or ingenious way of catching fish.”

“Nightline” went with Young in the Illinois River near Bath, Ill., about 200 miles south of Lake Michigan, to hunt a species of the insidious Asian carp. Once imported by catfish farmers in the 1970s to clean their ponds, the invasion has turned into an environmental disaster because the carp can’t seem to be stopped.

Nate Wallick and Zach Hoffman, known on YouTube as the Peoria Carp Hunters, came along for the ride to navigate the river. The duo’s super-hero YouTube videos showing them using water skis, tubes and homemade armor to kill the invasive carp have catapulted them to fish-fighting fame.

While it may seem like fun and games, the carp hunters mean serious business.

“[The carp] spawn three times a year,” Wallick said. “They eat 40 percent of their body weight a day in plankton. They’re known to grow up to be 100 pounds. So they put out millions of eggs and just how fast they are reproducing, if they were to get into the Great Lakes, it would be devastating.”

So from ages twenty-seven to fifty-four he has the numbers 5 (born on the 5th of the month), 43 (sum of the 4th, 5th, and 6th letters of the name), and 48 (5+43=48) going on.

Ages 45 to 54 are ruled by the sum of the day of birth and the 6th letter of the name.

Jeremy John Wade      May 5th, 1956

Jimmy has been working with native and exotic wildlife under the supervision of Mike “Skeet” Johns at the Native Village in Hollywood, Florida on the Seminole Indian reservation for many years. Starting at the age of eleven he has been working along side and learned much from friends and Native Village alums Ian Tyson, Paul Simmons, Tre Huntoon, David Weathers, Dexter Osborn, and Richard Decoste. Jimmy met his partner and good friend Paul Bedard at the Native Village when Jimmy was a young volunteer there. Paul knowing much and Jimmy knowing little at the time, they worked side by side wrangling gator’s and catching venomous snakes. Under Skeet’s supervision Jimmy taught his younger brother Andy to wrestle gator’s at a young age. Andy often goes with the “Gatorboys” on their adventures and has become very skilled at working with animals. Growing up Jimmy’s parents George and Kim Riffle backed Jimmy on any of his decisions “Even though we know he could be hurt we still support him.”

At an early age Skeet took Jimmy under his wing and taught him about wildlife and how to live off the land. He taught him how to identify, appreciate and respect native wildlife and the land itself. Since the age of eleven Jimmy has wanted to follow in Skeet’s footsteps. The two became close friends as Jimmy moved from volunteer to manager of the Native Village by the age of 18. Skeet passed away in 2005 and left Jimmy at the Native Village to literally walk in his footsteps.

Jimmy still works at the Native Village and spends much of his time with his partner Paul exploring the Everglades and the swamps of Florida as well as new areas outside the state. Jimmy says, “The learning experience I get everyday working with wildlife and meeting new people is a blessing from God. I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.”

Paul grew up in rural southeastern New England. Starting at a young age Paul spent most of his time outdoors exploring nature. He would routinely go on long bicycle rides to find new areas to explore and new animals to interact with. He often made the almost 30 mile round trip bike ride to a place in a near by town called Rattlesnake Hill in search of Timber Rattlesnakes; catching his first at the age of 12. “I’m lucky I didn’t get killed.. I caught it with a stick and a pillow case… and then road home with it tied to my handle bars.. I probably caught 8 or 10 out there over the next 3 years.. I don’t know how I wasn’t bitten.” “I would definitely tell young kids to stay away from rattlesnakes.”

Both cycling and interacting with animals would always be a big part of Paul’s life. In his early twenties while earning a BA from the University of Massachusetts Paul became an elite level triathlete. At the age of 24, Paul became the youngest athlete (at the time) to finish a Double Iron Triathlon (4.8 mile swim, 224 mile bike and a 52.4 mile run; all done back to back without stopping). By 1998 Paul’s weekly training regiment often consisted of 5 to 10 miles of swimming; 500 to 600 miles of cycling and over 100 miles of running. In 1999 the long training helped him win the Oddessy Double Iron Triathlon.

After college Paul stayed in New England for the summer months to train and focus on triathlons, and spent the rest of the year in the south exploring the outdoors and interacting with animals. Cutting his triathlon training by almost two thirds in the off-season left Paul with time for other things like spear-fishing and diving with sharks in the Florida Keys with childhood friends Chris and Mark Rackley and their partner Manny Puig. He also learned to catch and wrestle alligators with swamp legend Mike “Skeet” Johns former owner and curator of the Native Village in Hollywood Florida. He began working with and catching Venomous snakes with Jonathan “Cattail” Vasquez and Ray Beccera in the Big Cypress Swamp. Paul began working with his partner Jimmy Riffle about 9 years ago. He met Jimmy who was working with Skeet at the Native Village. “Jimmy has become like a brother to me; I’ve seen him go from a little red-neck kid to one of the best gator, and animal handlers in the world… he is so advanced for his age. He also is smart enough to know that he doesn’t know everything, and has a great desire to learn”. Over the years Paul has worked with and around animals of all kinds including gator’s, sharks, crocodiles, venomous snakes, bears, and big cats just to name a few.

Not much has changed over the years. Paul still goes to New England for 3 months every year to see family; train, and work as a lifeguard at Horseneck Beach, just as he has for the past 17 years. He still spends most of the rest of the time in Southern Florida working with animals with his good friend and partner Jimmy Riffle. “Life is great… I wake up everyday and thank Jesus for all the amazing blessings in my life…. I am SO blessed and thankful…. everyday is a new adventure and has a new surprise… There are very few days in my life that I can recall, that I wouldn’t love to be able to live over 10 or 20 times. I’m the luckiest guy in the world… my heroes are all my best friends and my dad. People think my friends and I are these really tough guys; because we work with all these dangerous animals, put our own stitches in and because I used to run a hundred miles a week and stuff…… but they have no idea. My friends are definitely some gnarly dudes…. but if you took all of us and combined us with Rambo, Dirty Harry, The Predator and John Wayne; we would still look like a little girl scout with a tummy ache compared to my dad. He is the toughest guy I’ve even seen or even heard of… and he’s the most selfless guy I know…. he’s been working for his family since he was 11. He would dig basements under houses with a shovel and give all the money to his parents. If I end up one tenth the man he is…. I’ll be a huge over achiever.”

Animal Planet was created in cooperation with the BBC by Discovery Communications on October 1, 1996.

On January 1, 1997, Animal Planet’s distribution grew as a result of Discovery Communications, buying the channel space of WOR EMI Service (a national feed of New York’s WWOR-TV), that was implemented in the light of the SyndEx laws enforced by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

It is available throughout the United States, as well as in over 70 countries around the world.

Country-specific versions of the channel have been created in Canada, India, Japan, Taiwan and other countries.

The National Aquarium in Baltimore has an exhibit of “Animal Planet Australia: Wild Extreme”. It opened in late 2005 in a multi-million dollar expansion. Animal Planet and the National Aquarium in Baltimore (in 2004) announced a multi-year partnership which produced an original orientation film that gives Aquarium visitors background on the Australian area which inspired the new exhibit and a dedicated area inside the expansion where visitors can learn about Animal Planet’s conservation efforts and other programming. The partnership also has possible future productions of TV programs about the National Aquarium in Baltimore’s research and exhibits.

In 2006, BBC Worldwide sold its 20% interest in Animal Planet US back to Discovery Communications. The BBC maintained its 50% ownership in Animal Planet Europe, Animal Planet Asia and Animal Planet Latin America, as well as its minority position in Animal Planet Japan and Animal Planet Canada. Animal Planet is additionally an associate member of the Caribbean Cable Cooperative Genius Products has announced a U.S. distribution agreement not only with Animal Planet, but also with TLC.

Jakks Pacific has just signed a license to make Animal Planet pet products.

On February 3, 2008, Animal Planet “relaunched” itself under a new image that “sheds its soft and furry side for programming and an image with more bite.” As part of the relaunch, Animal Planet replaced their elephant and spinning globe logo for a starker text image that allows more flexibility in its usage. Eight new shows and specials scheduled to air in February, with the new shows aimed at reaching a more adult audience with programming designed to tap into humans’ basic instincts with stories that reiterate what makes humans human.

The goal is to move from being perceived by viewers as paternalistic, preachy, and observation-based to being seen as active, entertaining and edgy. That means targeting adults 25-49, rather than full families, with less voice-of-God narration and more visceral imagery and sounds. Think of it as swapping a drab narrator saying that a lion is about to kill its prey for the blood-curdling scream of the doomed creature as it meets its demise.
—Anne Becker, Broadcasting & Cable

Recent additions to the channel, such as Meerkat Manor and Orangutan Island, already reflect this newer focus on “predation programming” and more immersive story telling. Animal Planet hopes this new direction will help revitalize stagnating ratings, after primetime viewing in 2007 dropped 9%. Animal Planet has offered new dramas, fantasy and comedy shows during the 2008-2009 season.

Animal Planet is also well-known for its annual stunt program, the Puppy Bowl, a yearly special shown during the afternoon leading up to the NFL‘s Super Bowl, primarily consisting of puppies at play commentated by the late sports broadcaster Harry Kalas.

Animal Planet HD is a 1080i high definition simulcast of Animal Planet, that launched on September 1, 2007. It is currently available on Verizon Fios, Dish Network, Cox, Comcast, Charter, DirecTV and Time Warner Cable.

It was also recently launched, (February 3, 2009) in Norway for Canal Digital, in which Norway is the first country outside the US to get this channel in HD.

Stephen Robert Irwin (22 February 1962 – 4 September 2006), known simply as Steve Irwin and nicknamedThe Crocodile Hunter“, was an Australian television personality, wildlife expert, and conservationist. Irwin achieved worldwide fame from the television series The Crocodile Hunter, an internationally broadcast wildlife documentary series co-hosted with his wife Terri (née Raines). Together, the couple also co-owned and operated Australia Zoo, founded by Irwin’s parents in Beerwah, Queensland
Irwin died on 4 September 2006 after being fatally pierced in the chest by a stingray barb while filming in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society ship MY Steve Irwin was named in his honour, christened by his widow, who stated: “If Steve were alive, he’d be aboard with them!” 
Irwin was born on his mother’s birthday to Lyn and Bob Irwin in Essendon, a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria. He moved with his parents as a child to Queensland in 1970. Irwin described his father as a wildlife expert interested in herpetology while his mother Lyn was a wildlife rehabilitator. After moving to Queensland, Bob and Lyn Irwin started the small Queensland Reptile and Fauna Park, where Steve grew up around crocodiles and other reptiles
Irwin became involved with the park in a number of ways, including taking part in daily animal feeding, as well as care and maintenance activities. On his sixth birthday he was given a 12-foot (4 m) scrub python. He began handling crocodiles at the age of nine after his father had educated him on reptiles from an early age. Also at age nine he wrestled his first crocodile, again under his father’s supervision. He graduated from Caloundra State High School in 1979. He soon moved to Northern Queensland, where he became a crocodile trapper, removing crocodiles from populated areas where they were considered a danger. He performed the service for free with the quid pro quo that he be allowed to keep them for the park. Irwin followed in his father’s footsteps, becoming a volunteer for the Queensland Government’s East Coast Crocodile Management program. 

Career

Rise to fame

Irwin feeding a crocodile at Australia Zoo
The park was a family run business, until it was turned over to Steve. He took over the running of the park, now called Australia Zoo (renaming it in 1992). Also that year, he appeared in a one-off reptile and wildlife special for television. In 1991, he met Terri Raines at the park, while performing a demonstration. The two married in June 1992, in Terri’s hometown of Eugene, Oregon. The footage, shot by John Stainton, of their crocodile-trapping honeymoon became the first episode of The Crocodile Hunter. The series debuted on Australian TV screens in 1996, and by the following year had made its way onto North American television. The Crocodile Hunter became successful in the United States and also, after repackaging by Partridge Films for ITV, in the UK. In 1998, he continued, working with producer and director Mark Strickson, to present The Ten Deadliest Snakes in the World. By 1999, he had become very popular in the United States, making his first appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. By this time, the Crocodile Hunter series was broadcast in over 137 countries, reaching 500 million people. His exuberant and enthusiastic presenting style, broad Australian accent, signature khaki shorts, and catchphrase “Crikey!” became known worldwide. Sir David Attenborough praised Irwin for introducing many to the natural world, saying “He taught them how wonderful and exciting it was, he was a born communicator.” 
A 2000 FedEx commercial with Steve Irwin lightheartedly dealt with the possibility of occupational death from snakebite and the fanciful notion that FedEx would have saved him, if only FedEx were used. 
Under Irwin’s leadership, the operations grew to include the zoo, the television series, the Steve Irwin Conservation Foundation (renamed Wildlife Warriors), and the International Crocodile Rescue. Improvements to the Australia Zoo include the Animal Planet Crocoseum, the rainforest aviary and Tiger Temple. Irwin mentioned that he was considering opening an Australia Zoo in Las Vegas, Nevada, and possibly at other sites around the world. 

Film

In 2001, Irwin appeared in a cameo role in the Eddie Murphy film Dr. Dolittle 2, in which a crocodile warns Dolittle that he knows Irwin is going to grab him and is prepared to attack when he does, but Dolittle fails to warn Irwin in time. Irwin’s only starring feature film role was in 2002’s The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course, which was released to mixed reviews. In the film Irwin (who portrayed himself and performed numerous stunts) mistakes some CIA agents for poachers. He sets out to stop them from capturing a crocodile, which, unknown to him, has actually swallowed a tracking transmitter. The film won the Best Family Feature Film award for a comedy film at the Young Artist Awards. The film was produced on a budget of about $12 million, and has grossed $33 million. To promote the film, Irwin was featured in an animated short produced by Animax Entertainment for Intermix. 
In 2002, the Irwins appeared in the Wiggles video/DVD release Wiggly Safari, which was set in Irwin’s Australia Zoo. It featured Irwin-themed songs written and performed by the Wiggles such as “Crocodile Hunter”, “Australia Zoo”, “Snakes (You can look but you better not touch)” and “We’re The Crocodile Band”. Irwin was featured prominently on the cover and throughout the movie. 
In 2006, Irwin provided his voice for the 2006 animated film Happy Feet, as an elephant seal named Trev. The film was dedicated to Irwin, as he died during post-production. Another, previously incomplete scene, featuring Irwin providing the voice of an Albatross and essentially playing himself, was restored to the DVD release. 

Animal Planet and later projects

Animal Planet ended The Crocodile Hunter with a series finale entitled “Steve’s Last Adventure.” The last Crocodile Hunter documentary spanned three hours with footage of Irwin’s across-the-world adventure in locations including the Himalayas, the Yangtze River, Borneo, and the Kruger National Park. Irwin went on to star in other Animal Planet documentaries, including The Croc Files, The Crocodile Hunter Diaries, and New Breed Vets
As a part of the United States’ “Australia Week” celebrations in January 2006, Irwin appeared at the Pauley Pavilion, UCLA in Los Angeles, California. During an interview on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Irwin announced that Discovery Kids would be developing a show for his daughter, Bindi Sue Irwin. The show, Jungle Girl, was tipped to be similar to The Wiggles movies, with songs that surround a story. A feature-length episode of Australian kids TV show The Wiggles entitled “Wiggly Safari” appears dedicated to Irwin, and he’s featured in it heavily with his wife and daughter. The show includes the song “Crocodile Hunter, Big Steve Irwin”. 
In 2006, the American network The Travel Channel had begun to show a series of specials starring Irwin and his family as they travelled on cross-country tours. 

Media work

Irwin was also involved in several media campaigns. He enthusiastically joined with the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service to promote Australia’s strict quarantine/customs requirements, with advertisements and posters featuring slogans such as, “Quarantine Matters! Don’t muck with it”. His payments for these advertising campaigns were directed into his wildlife fund. 
In 2004, he was appointed ambassador for The Ghan, the passenger train running from Adelaide to Alice Springs in the central Australian outback, when the line was extended all the way to Darwin on the northern coast that year. For some time he was sponsored by Toyota
He was also a keen promoter for Australian tourism in general and Queensland tourism in particular. In 2002, the Australia Zoo was voted Queensland’s top tourist attraction. His immense popularity in the United States meant he often promoted Australia as a tourist destination there. 

Honours

In 1997 whilst on a fishing trip with his father, Steve discovered a new species of turtle, Steve was given the honour of naming the newly discovered species and named it after his family; Irwin’s Turtle Elseya irwini
In 2001, Irwin was awarded the Centenary Medal for his “service to global conservation and to Australian tourism”. In 2004, he was recognised as Tourism Export of the Year. He was also nominated in 2004 for Australian of the Year, an honour which was won by Australian Cricket Captain Steve Waugh. Shortly before his death, he was to be named an adjunct professor at the University of Queensland‘s School of Integrative Biology. On 14 November 2007 Irwin was awarded the adjunct professorship posthumously by the University of Queensland. In May 2007, the Rwandan Government announced that it would name a baby gorilla after Steve Irwin as a tribute to his work in wildlife conservation. The Crocodile Rehabilitation and Research Centre in Neyyar Wildlife Sanctuary was named by the Kerala government after late Steve Irwin. 
In 2009, a genus and a species of Australian air-breathing land snail was named after Steve Irwin, the genus and species Crikey steveirwini Stanisic, 2009, in the land snail family Camaenidae

Environmentalism

Irwin was a passionate conservationist and believed in promoting environmentalism by sharing his excitement about the natural world rather than preaching to people. He was concerned with conservation of endangered animals and land clearing leading to loss of habitat. He considered conservation to be the most important part of his work: “I consider myself a wildlife warrior. My mission is to save the world’s endangered species.” Irwin bought “large tracts of land” in Australia, Vanuatu, Fiji and the United States, which he described as “like national parks” and stressed the importance of people realising that they could each make a difference. 
He had urged people to take part in considerate tourism and not support illegal poaching through the purchase of items such as turtle shells or shark-fin soup. 
He founded the Steve Irwin Conservation Foundation, which was later renamed Wildlife Warriors Worldwide, and became an independent charity. He was described after his death by the CEO of RSPCA Queensland as a “modern-day Noah,” and British naturalist David Bellamy lauded his skills as a natural historian and media performer. Irwin and his father discovered a new species of turtle that now bears his name, Elseya irwini — Irwin’s Turtle — a species of turtle found on the coast of Queensland. 
He also helped to found a number of other projects, such as the International Crocodile Rescue, as well as the Lyn Irwin Memorial Fund, in memory of his mother (who was in a fatal car crash in 2000), with proceeds going to the Iron Bark Station Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre. 
Irwin, however, was criticised for having an unsophisticated view of conservation in Australia that seemed more linked to tourism than to the problems Australia faces as a continent
In response to questions of Australia’s problems with overgrazing, salinity, and erosion, Irwin responded, “Cows have been on our land for so long that Australia has evolved to handle those big animals.” The Sydney Morning Herald concluded with the opinion that his message was confusing and amounted to “eating roos and crocs is bad for tourism, and therefore more cruel than eating other animals”. 
According to Terri, Sir David Attenborough was an inspiration to Irwin. When presenting a Lifetime Achievement Award to Attenborough after Irwin’s death at the British National Television Awards on 31 October 2006 Terri stated “If there’s one person who directly inspired my husband it’s the person being honoured tonight.” She went on to say “[Steve’s] real, true love was conservation – and the influence of tonight’s recipient in preserving the natural world has been immense.” Sir David reciprocated with praising Irwin for introducing many to the natural world, saying “He taught them how wonderful and exciting it was, he was a born communicator.”

Personal life

Family

Terri Raines Irwin, the widow of Steve Irwin 

In 1992, Irwin married Terri Raines from Eugene, Oregon, United States. The pair had met a few months earlier, when Terri had visited the zoo on a holiday; according to both of them, it was love at first sight. Terri said at the time, “I thought there was no one like this anywhere in the world. He sounded like an environmental Tarzan, a larger-than-life superhero guy.” Although he and Terri were happily married, they did not wear wedding rings; in their line of work, wearing jewellery could pose a hazard to them and/or the animals. Together they had two children: a daughter, Bindi Sue Irwin (born 24 July 1998), and a son, Robert Clarence “Bob” (named after Irwin’s father) Irwin (born 1 December 2003). Bindi Sue is jointly named after two of Steve Irwin’s favourite animals: Bindi, a saltwater crocodile, and Sui, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier who died in June 2004. 
Irwin was as enthusiastic about his family as he was about his work. He once described his daughter Bindi as “the reason [he] was put on the Earth.” His wife once said, “The only thing that could ever keep him away from the animals he loves are the people he loves even more.” 
Terri Irwin recently reported that Steve had an ongoing premonition that he would die before he reached age 40. She wrote about this in her book Steve and Me about their lives together. 

Controversies

MV Steve Irwin approaching Melbourne in February 2008 

A controversial incident occurred during a public show on 2 January 2004, when Irwin carried his one-month-old son, Bob, in his arm while hand-feeding a chicken carcass to Murray, a 3.8-metre (12 ft 6 in) saltwater crocodile. The infant was close to the crocodile, and comparisons were made in the press to Michael Jackson‘s dangling his son outside a German hotel window. In addition, child welfare groups, animal rights groups, and some of Irwin’s television viewers criticised his actions as irresponsible and tantamount to child abuse. Irwin apologised on the US NBC Today Show. Both he and his wife publicly stated that Irwin was in complete control of the situation, as he had dealt with crocodiles since he was a small child, and based on his lifetime of experience neither he nor his son were in any danger. He also showed footage of the event shot from a different angle, demonstrating that they were much further from the crocodile than they had appeared in the publicised clip. Terri Irwin said their child was in no more danger than one being taught to swim. No charges were filed; according to one journalist, Irwin told officials he would not repeat the action. The incident prompted the Queensland government to change its crocodile-handling laws, banning children and untrained adults from entering crocodile enclosures. 
In June 2004, allegations were made that he disturbed wildlife (namely whales, seals and penguins) while filming a documentary, Ice Breaker, in Antarctica. The matter was subsequently closed without charges being filed. 
After Irwin’s death, the vessel MV Robert Hunter owned by the environmental action group Sea Shepherd was renamed MV Steve Irwin in Steve’s honour. Sea Shepherd is a controversial environmentalist group that conducts direct action operations including the sinking of whaling ships to protect marine species and environments. Shortly before his death, Irwin had been investigating joining their 2007/08 voyage to Antarctica to disrupt Japanese whaling activity. Following his death, as an alternative the renaming of the vessel was suggested by Sea Shepherd and endorsed by his widow Terri. 

Politics

After questions arose about Irwin being paid $175,000 worth of taxpayers’ money to appear in a television advertisement and his possible political ties, Irwin told ABC that he was a conservationist and did not choose sides in politics. 
His comments describing Australian Prime Minister John Howard as the “greatest leader in the world” earned him scorn in the media. 

Search and rescue effort in Mexico

In November 2003, Irwin was filming a documentary on sea lions off the coast of Mexico‘s Baja California Peninsula when he heard via his boat’s radio that two scuba divers were reported missing in the area. Irwin and his entire crew suspended operations to aid in the search. His team’s divers searched with the rescue divers, and Irwin used his vessel to patrol the waters around the island where the incident occurred, as well as using his satellite communications system to call in a rescue plane. On the second day of the search, kayakers found one of the divers, Scott Jones, perched on a narrow rock ledge jutting out from the side of a cliff. Irwin and a crewmember escorted him to Irwin’s boat. Jones did not recognise Steve Irwin. The other lost diver, Katie Vrooman, was found dead by a search plane later the same day not far from Jones’ location. 

Sports fan

Having grown up in Essendon, Irwin was a fan of the Essendon Bombers, an Australian rules football club in the Australian Football League. Irwin took part in an Australian Rules football promotion in Los Angeles as part of “Australia Week” in early 2006. After his death, a picture of Irwin wearing a Bombers Guernsey was shown by ESPN.com in their Bottom 10 ranking of the worst Division I FBS college football teams after Week 1 of the season in tribute to him. 
Like many Australians, he was a avid cricket fan. This was seen during his visit to Sri Lanka where he played cricket with some local children and said “I love cricket” and “It’s a shame we have to go catch some snakes now”. This was seen during the Crocodile Hunter episode “Island of the Snakes”. 
Living in Queensland most of his life, Irwin was also a fan of rugby league. As a teenager, he played for the Caloundra Sharks as a second-rower, and as an adult he was known to be a passionate Brisbane Broncos fan and was involved with the club on several occasions. On one occasion after turning up to training he asked if he could tackle the largest player, Shane Webcke. Despite being thrown to the ground and looking like he’d been crushed he was jovial about the experience. Irwin laughingly shared the experience with the Queensland State of Origin squad before the 2006 series. Irwin also supported rugby union, being a fan of the national team, the Wallabies. He once wore a Wallaby jersey during a demonstration at the zoo. A behind-the-scenes episode of The Crocodile Hunter showed Irwin and the crew finding a gas station in a remote part of Namibia to watch the Wallabies defeat France in the 1999 Rugby World Cup Final. Irwin was also a talented surfer. 
Irwin loved mixed martial arts competitions and trained with Greg Jackson in the fighting/grappling system of Gaidojutsu. 

Other personal trivia

  • Irwin was the feature of The Wiggles “Wiggly Safari” 2002 DVD release.
  • Irwin was particularly interested in Singapore Zoo, which he considered a sister institution of the Australia Zoo.
  • In 2004, during an interview with Larry King, he admitted that he had a fear of parrots, having received many painful bites from the animals in the past.
  • In 2005, in an interview for New Idea, he stated that he was afraid of being killed in a car crash.
  • Terri Irwin has stated in an interview that Irwin believed in God. Stories that he had joined a church a short time before his death appear to be urban legend.

Death

On 4 September 2006, Irwin was fatally pierced in the chest by a stingray spine while snorkelling at the Great Barrier Reef, at Batt Reef, which is located off the coast of Port Douglas in north Queensland. Irwin was in the area filming his own documentary, Ocean’s Deadliest, but weather had stalled filming. Irwin decided to take the opportunity to film some shallow water shots for a segment in the television program his daughter Bindi Irwin was hosting, when, according to his friend and colleague, John Stainton, he swam too close to one of the stingrays. “He came on top of the stingray and the stingray’s barb went up and into his chest and put a hole into his heart,” said Stainton, who was on board Irwin’s boat the Croc One
The events were caught on camera, and a copy of the footage was handed to the Queensland Police. After reviewing the footage of the incident and speaking to the cameraman who recorded it, marine documentary filmmaker and former spearfisherman Ben Cropp speculated that the stingray “felt threatened because Steve was alongside and there was the cameraman ahead.” In such a case, the stingray responds to danger by automatically flexing the serrated spine on its tail (which can measure up to 25 cm/10 in in length) in an upward motion. 
Cropp said Irwin had accidentally boxed the animal in. “It stopped and twisted and threw up its tail with the spike, and it caught him in the chest. It’s a defensive thing. It’s like being stabbed with a dirty dagger.” The stinging of Irwin by the bull ray was “a one-in-a-million thing,” Cropp told Time magazine. “I have swum with many rays, and I have only had one do that to me…” 
Initially, when Irwin’s colleague, John Stainton, was interviewed by CNN’s Larry King late on 4 September 2006 he denied the suggestion that Irwin had pulled the spine out of his chest, or that he had seen footage of the event, insisting that the anecdote was “absolute rubbish.” The following day, when he first described the video to the media, he stated, “Steve came over the top of the ray and the tail came up, and spiked him here [in the chest], and he pulled it out and the next minute he’s gone.” 
It is thought, in the absence of a coroner‘s report, that a combination of the toxins and the puncture wound from the spine caused Irwin to die of cardiac arrest, with most damage being inflicted by tears to arteries or other main blood vessels. A similar incident in Florida a month later in which a man survived a stingray barb through the heart suggested that Irwin’s removal of the barb might have caused or hastened his death. The coroner’s report has not yet been released. 
Crew members aboard his boat called the emergency services in the nearest city of Cairns and administered CPR as they rushed the boat to the nearby Low Islets to meet an emergency rescue helicopter. However, despite the best efforts of Irwin’s crew, medical staff pronounced him dead when they arrived a short time later. According to Dr Ed O’Loughlin, who treated Irwin, “it became clear fairly soon that he had non-survivable injuries. He had a penetrating injury to the left front of his chest. He had lost his pulse and wasn’t breathing.” 

Cairns, Queensland 

Irwin’s body was flown to a morgue in Cairns. His wife, Terri Irwin, was on a walking tour in Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park in Tasmania at the time, and returned via a private plane from Devonport to the Sunshine Coast with their two children. 
Fatalities due to stingrays are infrequent and occurrences are not consistently collated, while there have been several others in Australia. Irwin’s death is believed to be the only fatality from a stingray ever captured on film. 
Stainton told CNN‘s Larry King “[The tape] should be destroyed”. In an ABC interview with Barbara Walters, Irwin’s wife Terri said she has not seen the film of her husband’s deadly encounter with the stingray and that it would not be shown on television. On 3 January 2007, the only video footage showing the events that led to Irwin’s death was handed over to Terri, who said that the video would never become public, and noted her family has not seen the video either. In an 11 January 2007 interview with Access Hollywood, Terri said that “all footage has been destroyed.” Despite these statements, numerous videos, including screamers, surfaced on sites such as YouTube claiming to be footage of Irwin’s death. Several pictures have also surfaced on Google Images. 
Production was completed on Ocean’s Deadliest, which aired for the first time on the Discovery Channel on 21 January 2007. The documentary was completed with footage shot in the weeks following the accident. According to Stainton, “Anything to do with the day that he died, that film is not available.” Perhaps to maintain the film’s original purpose as a nature documentary and prevent it from becoming a documentary of Irwin’s final days, his death is not mentioned in the film, aside from a still image of Irwin at the end alongside the text “In Memory of Steve Irwin”. 

Reaction

News of his death prompted widespread worldwide shock. Former Australian Prime Minister John Howard expressed his “shock and distress” at the death, saying that “Australia has lost a wonderful and colourful son.” Queensland Premier Peter Beattie commented in a Channel Seven television interview that Irwin “will be remembered as not just a great Queenslander, but a great Australian”. Several Australian news websites went down because of high web traffic and for the first time the top 10 list of most viewed stories for Fairfax Digital news sites were swept by one topic. Talk-back radio experienced a high volume of callers expressing their grief. Flags at the Sydney Harbour were lowered to half staff in honour of Irwin. 
The U.S. feed of the Animal Planet cable television channel aired a special tribute to Steve Irwin that started on Monday, 4 September 2006. The tribute continued with the Animal Planet channel showing highlights of Irwin’s more than 200 appearances on Discovery Networks shows. 
On the evening of his death, Enough Rope re-broadcast an interview between Irwin and Andrew Denton originally broadcast in 2003. CNN showed a repeat of his interview on Larry King Live, originally recorded in 2004. The Australian federal parliament opened on 5 September 2006 with condolence speeches by both the Prime Minister John Howard and the Leader of the Opposition Kim Beazley. The Seven Network aired a television memorial show as a tribute to Irwin on 5 September 2006, as did the Nine Network on 6 September 2006. 
Jay Leno delivered a tribute to Irwin, describing him as a great ambassador of Australia. Irwin appeared on Leno’s talk show on more than ten occasions. There were also tributes on Live with Regis & Kelly and Barbara WaltersThe View; on the former show, Kelly Ripa came close to tears with her praise of Irwin. 
Hundreds of people visited Australia Zoo to pay tribute to the deceased entertainer and conservationist. The day after his death, the volume of people visiting the zoo to pay their respects affected traffic so much that police reduced the speed limit around the Glass House Mountains Road and told motorists to expect delays. BBC reported on 13 September 2006 that thousands of fans have been to Australia Zoo since Irwin’s death, bringing flowers, candles, stuffed animals and messages of support. 
Dan Mathews, vice-president of animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, said it was “no shock at all that Steve Irwin should die provoking a dangerous animal.” He added that “Irwin made his career out of antagonising frightened wild animals, that’s a very dangerous message to send to children.” He also made a comparison with another well known conservationist: “If you compare him with a responsible conservationist like Jacques Cousteau, he looks like a cheap reality TV star.” The son of Jacques Cousteau, Jean-Michel Cousteau, also a producer of wildlife documentaries, also took issue with Irwin’s hands-on approach to nature television. Cousteau said, “You don’t touch nature, you just look at it.” Although it “goes very well on television”, Irwin’s approach would “interfere with nature, jump on animals, grab them, hold them, and have this very, very spectacular, dramatic way of presenting things” which Cousteau felt is “very misleading”. 
Jacques Cousteau’s grandson, Philippe Cousteau Jr., however, was himself working with Irwin on the “Ocean’s Deadliest” documentary at the time of Irwin’s death, and later described him as “a remarkable individual.” Describing their project, he said, “I think why Steve was so excited about it that we were looking at these animals that people think of as, you know, dangerous and deadly monsters, and they’re not. They all have an important place in the environment and in the world. And that was what his whole message was about.” 
In the weeks after his death, Irwin’s conservation foundation Wildlife Warriors reported that thousands of people from around the world were offering their support via donations to the conservation group. 

Backlash against stingrays

In the weeks following Irwin’s death, at least ten stingrays were found dead and mutilated, with their tails cut off, on the beaches of Queensland, prompting speculation that they had been killed by fans of Irwin as an act of revenge. Michael Hornby, a friend of the late naturalist and executive director of Irwin’s Wildlife Warrior fund, condemned any revenge killings. 
“We just want to make it very clear that we will not accept and not stand for anyone who’s taken a form of retribution. That’s the last thing Steve would want,” he said. 

Funeral and memorials

Queensland Premier Peter Beattie extended the offer of a state funeral to Irwin’s family, an honour also agreed to by Prime Minister John Howard. The family decided that such a funeral would not have been appropriate, a sentiment echoed by many Australians outside media and political circles. Steve Irwin’s father, Bob Irwin, stated that his son would not have wanted such an honour, and would want to be remembered as an “ordinary bloke.” Beattie stated he would honour the decision of the Irwin family regarding their arrangements. Irwin was farewelled by family and friends at a private funeral service held at Caloundra on the afternoon of 9 September. The naturalist was buried in a private ceremony at the zoo on the same day. The grave is inaccessible to visitors of the Australia Zoo. 

Memorial service

A public service was held at the 5,500-seat Crocoseum at Australia Zoo on Wednesday morning 20 September 2006. The service was broadcast live, commercial free, in the eastern states of Australia, by free-to-air channels Seven, Nine and the ABC in Australia, as well as live on subscription channel Sky News Australia. In addition, it was broadcast live around the world, particularly the United States, where the service was broadcast commercial free on Animal Planet, as well as to Asia and Germany. A BBC camera crew was also sent especially to Australia to cover the memorial service for the United Kingdom. It is estimated that over 300 million viewers worldwide watched the service. The memorial was also rebroadcast on Animal Planet on 1 January 2007 as part of their New Year’s Day celebration, and again the following day. 

The “Crocoseum” at Australia Zoo, where Steve Irwin’s memorial service was held. 

Messages from around the world came from people including Hugh Jackman, Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake, Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe, Kelly Ripa and Larry King. Costner called him a fearless man who was brave enough to let people see him as he was. 
Prime Minister John Howard made an early speech at the service, as did Irwin’s father Bob and his daughter Bindi. 
Wes Mannion and John Stainton also made speeches and David Wenham read a poem. Anthony Field from The Wiggles partly hosted the service, often sharing the screen with various animals, from koalas to elephants, and Australian music star John Williamson sang True Blue, which was Irwin’s favourite song. Professor Craig Franklin of the University of Queensland told the crowd that the university was about to make Irwin an adjunct professor for his contributions to the study of crocodiles. In a symbolic finish to the service, Irwin’s truck was loaded up with gear and driven out of the arena for the last time as Williamson sang. 
In a final tribute, Australia Zoo staff spelled out Irwin’s catchphrase “Crikey” in yellow flowers as Irwin’s truck was driven from the “Crocoseum” for the last time to end the service. Flags on the Sydney Harbour Bridge flew at half mast on the day of the memorial service. 

Other Australian memorials

  • Several permanent memorials for Irwin have already been considered or announced. Premier Peter Beattie suggested a national park be named after Irwin or a permanent memorial might be constructed in his honour, though the details of the structure would depend on Irwin’s family.
  • On 1 January 2007, Glasshouse Mountains Road, the road that runs by Steve and Terri Irwin’s Australia Zoo, was officially renamed to “Steve Irwin Way”.
  • There will be a nature park in Australia named after Irwin, the Australian federal government announced in July 2007.

American memorials

  • Animal Planet is also creating the Steve Irwin Crocodile Hunter Fund called “The Crikey Fund” to “provide a way for people from across the globe to make contributions in Irwin’s honour to support wildlife protection, education and conservation”.
  • On the Happy Feet DVD, there is a deleted scene where the main character Mumble meets an albatross voiced by Irwin and a blue whale. The scene was unfinished at first but was included on the DVD release to honour Irwin’s memory as Irwin had insisted on being in a film that contained a message about the environment. However, they took this scene off the movie and decided to let Irwin play an elephant seal named Trev.

Indian memorial

  • A crocodile research centre in Neyyar Wildlife Sanctuary was named by the Kerala government after Steve Irwin.

The state’s forest and wildlife department is perhaps the first government body in the world to name a memorial after Irwin, whose documentaries on wildlife and reptiles endeared him to thousands of viewers. The centre is now called the Steve Irwin Crocodile Rehabilitation and Research Centre. 

Death anniversary

On 4 September 2007, Australian fans gathered at the Irwin family zoo on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland to commemorate the first anniversary of Irwin’s death. State Premier Peter Beattie described Irwin as one of the state’s greatest cultural ambassadors. On 15 November, Irwin’s widow Terri and children, Bindi and Bob, remembered his life and achievements on “Steve Irwin Day.”

Each letter of the name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 27 to 54 are ruled by the sum of the day of birth and the 4th, 5th, and 6th letters of the name.

5 (born on the 5th of the month) + 5 (e is the 5th letter of the alphabet) + 13 (m is the 13th letter of the alphabet) + 25 (y is the 25th letter of the alphabet) = 48

So from ages twenty-seven to fifty-four he has the numbers 5 (born on the 5th of the month), 43 (sum of the 4th, 5th, and 6th letters of the name), and 48 (5+43=48) going on.

Richard (Ric) O’Barry was first recognized in the 1960s for capturing and training the five dolphins that were used in the well-known TV series Flipper. Soon after Kathy, one of the Flipper dolphins, died, according to O’Barry, while in his arms in what he believed was a suicide, he made a radical transition from training dolphins in captivity to assertively combating the captivity industry. O’Barry was featured in The Cove, a film that uses covert techniques to expose the yearly dolphin drive hunting that goes on in Taiji, Japan.

After leaving the Navy, O’Barry began training dolphins in the 1960s with the Miami Seaquarium. It was while working with the Miami Seaquarium that O’Barry was hired to work on the television series Flipper. Though O’Barry admits he readily noticed the remarkable intelligence of the mammals he was working with, he also attests to ignoring this factor when weighing it against the large profit he was making from the show. In his own words,”I was young, I had a glamorous job, I was driving a Porsche and it was easy to do.”

When one of the five Flippers, a female Bottlenose Dolphin named Kathy died, O’Barry could no longer deny what he saw as cruelty and potentially fatal consequences of the captivity industry he had helped to establish. O’Barry maintains that Kathy died in his arms from a form of suicide.

Activism

Directly following Kathy’s death O’Barry released his first dolphin from a sea pen holding off the island of Bimini. Then in 1970, on the first Earth Day, he founded the original Dolphin Project with the primary goal of releasing dolphins from captivity.

O’Barry currently lives in Coconut Grove, Florida and has been fighting against the captivity industry for the past 38 years. In 1989 O’Barry founded the non-profit organization, Dolphin Project Inc., to study Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins in estuarine waters. Since 1989 the organization has successfully documented and surveyed over 850 different individual bottlenose dolphins. In addition, O’Barry has written several books to raise awareness about dolphins in captivity including Behind the Dolphin Smile (1989) and To Free a Dolphin (2000).

In the course of O’Barry’s activities he and his associates have been convicted for violations of the Marine Mammals Protection Act in the US, on the basis that these activities brought life-threatening injuries to dolphins.

O’Barry is the Marine Mammal Specialist for Earth Island Institute and Director of the Save Japan Dolphins coalition. In 2009 he was being sued for $300 million by a dolphinarium in the Dominican Republic for alleged business interference.

The Cove

He also worked on the feature length documentary The Cove, directed by Louie Psihoyos. The 2009 film centers on Taiji, Wakayama in Japan, bringing attention to the hunt of 23,000 dolphins taken there every year.

The Cove utilizes equipment and tactics never previously used by filmmakers in order to obtain footage that the Japanese government refused to allow the film crew to capture.

Sea Shepherd’s Mission Statement 

Established in 1977, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS) is an international non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organization. Our mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species.

Sea Shepherd uses innovative direct-action tactics to investigate, document, and take action when necessary to expose and confront illegal activities on the high seas. By safeguarding the biodiversity of our delicately-balanced ocean ecosystems, Sea Shepherd works to ensure their survival for future generations.

In 2007, Paul Watson persuaded the Discovery Channel to make a reality show documentary about the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s campaign against Japanese whaling in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary off the coast of Antarctica. The Japanese claim that their whaling is legally accepted research, which Sea Shepherd and others contend is a cover for banned commercial whaling. Sea Shepherd has been both criticized and praised for tactics of direct action sabotage which include throwing stink bombs of butyric acid as well as ramming, boarding, and otherwise attempting to disable the Japanese vessels.

The program premiered on November 7, 2008, on the Animal Planet cable channel and follows events on the vessel Steve Irwin as the group attempts to deter the hunting of Minke and Fin whales in the Southern Ocean. The show came at a time when Animal Planet was being rebranded to attract broader audiences and compete with non-animal-centric programming.

Synopsis

Season one

MY Steve Irwin arriving in Melbourne, 2008.

The 2007-08 Antarctic campaign was named Operation Migaloo, after the only known albino humpback in the world. This campaign was the focus of the first season of Whale Wars, which premiered on November 7, 2008.

On January 15, 2008, after attempting to entangle the whaling vessel’s propeller and throwing containers of butyric acid onto the decks, two Sea Shepherd members, Benjamin Potts and Giles Lane, from the Sea Shepherd vessel MV Steve Irwin boarded the Japanese whaling vessel Yushin Maru No. 2 from a rigid-hulled inflatable boat. The pair were delivering a letter advising the Japanese that they were “whaling illegally” with the hope of creating an international incident. The Japanese responded by saying that the men would be held until Sea Shepherd stopped what they called “dangerous and illegal activities.”

The crew of the Yushin Maru No. 2 detained the men for two days, before turning them over to the Australian customs vessel MV Oceanic Viking on the orders of Japanese authorities; subsequently, the Steve Irwin rendezvoused with the Oceanic Viking and the two crewmembers were returned to Sea Shepherd. On April 9, first mate Peter Brown was described in a newspaper article as saying that the incident only became a hostage situation because the Sea Shepherd vessel left the scene, so the Japanese would be forced to hold the two crewmen longer. He was quoted as saying, “It’s all giant street theater.”

On March 3, Sea Shepherd members threw bottles of butyric acid and packages of slippery methyl cellulose powder onto the Japanese vessel Nisshin Maru. Australian foreign minister Stephen Smith condemned Sea Shepherd’s actions for potentially causing injury The Japanese Government called in the Australian and Dutch ambassadors to protest the actions and urge those countries to prevent any violence. Watson said: “They are so full of crap. We filmed and photographed the entire thing. Not a single thing landed anywhere near their crew … It is their way of trying to get sympathy.”

The International Whaling Commission issued a statement on March 8, 2008 that “called upon the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society to refrain from dangerous actions that jeopardise safety at sea, and on vessels and crews concerned to exercise restraint.” The statement also reiterated earlier IWC resolutions from May and July 2007 that read in part, “The commission and its contracting governments do not condone and in fact condemn any actions that are a risk to human life and property in relation to the activities of vessels at sea.” The Australian Government also called for all parties to “excercise restraint” and “responsible behaviour” in the Southern Ocean.

On March 17, 2008 Paul Watson claimed that he was shot by the Japanese crew or coast guard personnel during the campaign. The incident is heavily documented during the show in the final episode, and the first six episodes are covered as a buildup to what is portrayed as the major incident during the campaign. The footage in Whale Wars shows Watson standing on the deck of the Steve Irwin while Sea Shepherd crew throws glass bottles filled with butyric acid at the Nisshin Maru whaling vessel. The Japanese respond by throwing flashbang devices. Watson is then shown reaching inside his jacket and bullet-proof vest and remarking “I’ve been hit.” Back inside the bridge of the Steve Irwin, a metal fragment is found inside the vest. The Institute of Cetacean Research has dismissed Sea Shepherd’s statements as lies. The Institute and Coast Guard said that they used seven flashbang devices designed to flash and make noise in the air without causing harm. Neither of the two conflicting accounts have been independently verified. The Australian Foreign Affairs Department had condemned “actions by crew members of any vessel that cause injury”. Two media releases were made on the same day from the office. One said that the Australian Embassy in Tokyo had been informed by the Japanese that the whalers had “fired warning shots” while the updated version used the phrase “‘warning balls’ – also known as ‘flashbangs’ – had been fired”, and that no gunshots had occurred.

Season two

The 2008-2009 Antarctic campaign was named Operation Musashi after the 17th-century Japanese strategist Miyamoto Musashi. On December 4, 2008, actress Daryl Hannah joined Sea Shepherd’s crew aboard the Steve Irwin to take part in this season’s operation.

On February 6, 2009, Watson reported that the Steve Irwin had collided with the Yushin Maru 2 as the Steve Irwin tried to block its attempt to prevent the transfer of a dead whale up the slipway of the factory ship Nisshin Maru. As Watson explained the incident, “We were in the process of blocking the transfer from the Yushin Maru 2 when the Yushin Maru 1 moved directly in front of the bow to block us. I could not turn to starboard without hitting the Yushin Maru 1. I tried to back down but the movement of the Yushin Maru 2 made the collision unavoidable.” The Japanese whalers blamed Sea Shepherd for the crash, characterizing the incident as a “deliberate ramming.” The collision was filmed by cameramen for the Whale Wars reality series, and formed part of a multi-day conflict during which Sea Shepherd attempted to prevent the Japanese fleet from harpooning whales, respectively tried to block whales from being transferred to the factory ship for processing by blockading the Japanese’ vessel’s slipway. The Japanese made extensive use of LRADs to deter Sea Shepherd. They were also accused of aiming the device at the Steve Irwin’s helicopter while in flight, something the group especially condemned, seeing that the helicopter was only engaged in filming, and could have crashed if the pilot had lost control.

Season three

The Bob Barker docked in Hobart, Tasmania.

At the start of the campaign, Marjorie Kaplan, president and general manager of Animal Planet, said in a news release: “The issues surrounding whaling in the southern ocean are important and complex. The majesty of these beautiful creatures and the lengths to which the Sea Shepherds will go in order to prevent whaling has made Whale Wars intense and vital television.” She also said that Japan had denied requests to film on their vessels.

In June 2009, Sea Shepherd announced its 2009-10 Antarctic campaign, called Operation Waltzing Matilda. The campaign would include the record-breaking Earthrace vessel, now renamed Ady Gil in honor of the benefactor who helped acquire the vessel for Sea Shepherd. The Ady Gil was a futuristic styled ship that held the world record for circumnavigation of the globe by a motorized vessel. The eco-friendly vessel usually ran on a low emission fuel “derived mainly from animal fat, soybeans or other forms of bio-diesel” but was forced by operational reasons to switch to a more polluting petroleum diesel. Pete Bethune, the operator, said that an agreement was reached with Sea Shepherd for the boat to adopt a support role.

The Ady Gil docked in Hobart, Tasmania.

Captain Paul Watson and his crew of 40 left with the Steve Irwin and Ady Gil from Fremantle, Australia, and from Hobart, Tasmania, respectively, last December. It was well publicized that the Sea Shepherds had added more vessel firepower to keep up with the larger, faster and more numerous whaling vessels. What they kept secret, however, was that Bob Barker, famous for “The Price Is Right” and one of the best-known personalities in the world of animal activism, donated funds to purchase a third vessel to add to the Sea Shepherd’s fleet. Ironically, the ship is a former Norwegian whaling vessel but has since been renamed and refitted. With a crew of 26 and led by Captain Chuck Swift and first officer and Whale Wars veteran Peter Hammarstedt, the Bob Barker was docked off the coast of Africa on the island nation of the Republic of Mauritius, until it was ready to join its Sea Shepherd colleagues and engage in a surprise “engagement” to stop whaling.

Bob Barker is a strong advocate for animal rights; in particular, he’s an animal-rights activist, which means he has puts his name on the line and his money where his mouth is.

For years he ended ‘The Price Is Right’ by urging people to get their pets neutered; in 1987 he stepped down as host of the Miss USA/Universe Pageants because that organization wouldn’t eliminate fur prizes. In January of this year, he donated $5 million to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society to purchase a ship to thwart illegal Japanese whaling operations.

On Wednesday’s ‘The Huckabee Show’ (weekdays, syndicated), Barker appeared with Chuck Swift, captain of the MV Bob Barker, the anti-whaling ship named after the game-show host, and the pair discussed the international whaling treaties broken by the Japanese, Barker’s donation to the Sea Shepherd society, and the successes they have made in saving whales from destruction.

Paul Franklin Watson (born December 2, 1950) is a controversial and outspoken Canadian animal rights and environmental activist, who founded and is president of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, a direct action group devoted to marine conservation.

The Toronto native joined a Sierra Club protest against nuclear testing in 1969. He was an early and influential member of Greenpeace, crewed and skippered for it, and later was a board member. Watson argued for a strategy of direct action that conflicted with the Greenpeace interpretation of nonviolence, was ousted from the board in 1977, and subsequently left the organization. That same year, he formed Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. The group is the subject of a reality show, Whale Wars.

He also promotes veganism, voluntary human population control, and a biocentric, rather than anthropocentric, worldview.

Paul Watson was born in Toronto to Anthony Joseph Watson and Annamarie Larsen, and grew up in St. Andrews, New Brunswick. After working as a tour guide at Expo 67, the World’s Fair that took place in Montreal in 1967, Watson “rode the rails” in boxcars west to Vancouver.

In 1968 and the early 1970s, he joined the Canadian Coast Guard, where he served aboard weatherships, search and rescue hovercraft, and buoy tenders. He signed up as a merchant seaman in 1969 with the Norwegian Consulate in Vancouver and shipped out on the 35,000 ton bulk carrier Bris as a deck hand. The Bris was registered in Oslo, Norway and manifested for the Indian Ocean and Pacific trade.

Watson has one child (born 1980) with his first wife, Starlet Lum, a founding director of Greenpeace Quebec, Earthforce!, Project Wolf, and Sea Shepherd. His second wife, Lisa DiStefano, a former Playboy model, was Sea Shepherd’s Director of Operations during the Makah anti-whaling campaigns in Friday Harbor.  His third wife, Allison Lance, is an animal rights activist and a volunteer crew member of Sea Shepherd.

In October 1969, Watson joined a Sierra Club protest against nuclear testing at Amchitka Island. The group which formed as a result of that protest was the Don’t Make a Wave Committee, which evolved into the group known today as Greenpeace.  Watson sailed as a crewmember aboard the Greenpeace Too! ship in 1971 and skippered the Greenpeace boat Astral in 1972.  Paul Watson continued as a crew member, skipper, and officer aboard several Greenpeace voyages throughout the mid-1970s. According to Watson, in June 1975 during a Greenpeace campaign to confront Soviet whaling, an incident occurred which changed his life.

Greenpeace states that Watson “…was an influential early member but not, as he sometimes claims, a founder.”  Paul Watson has characterized the Greenpeace position as “revisionism”.

The first Sea Shepherd vessel, the Sea Shepherd, was purchased in December 1978 with assistance from Fund for Animals.  Sea Shepherd soon established itself as one of the more controversial environmental groups, known for provocative direct action tactics. These tactics have included throwing objects onto the decks of whaling ships, the use of “prop foulers” in an attempt to sabotage the ships, boarding whaling vessels, and the scuttling of two ships in an Icelandic harbor.  Watson remains the leader of Sea Shepherd today and uses the title “Captain” in reference to his role in the organization, although he has never been licensed as a ship’s captain.  The organization and its activities to halt whaling are the focus of a reality TV series, Whale Wars, airing on Animal Planet.

Watson was a field correspondent for Defenders of Wildlife from 1976 to 1980 and a field representative for the Fund for Animals from 1978 to 1981.  Watson also was a co-founder of Friends of the Wolf and Earthforce Environmental Society.

During the 1980s, Watson declared his support for Earth First! and cultivated friendships with David Foreman and Edward Abbey. He proclaimed Sea Shepherd to be the “navy” of Earth First! Watson has claimed to have invented the tactic of tree spiking.

Although currently unaffiliated with it, Watson did work with the Green Party of British Columbia in Vancouver in the 1980s and 90s.  He ran for mayor in 1996, placing fourth.

In April 2003, Watson was elected to the board of directors of the Sierra Club for a three-year term.  In 2006, he did not seek re-election. He resigned from the board a month before his term ended, in protest against the organization’s sponsorship of a “Why I Hunt” essay contest.

Watson feels that “no human community should be larger than 20,000 people,” human populations need to be reduced radically to “fewer than one billion,” and only those who are “completely dedicated to the responsibility” of caring for the biosphere should have children, which is a “very small percentage of humans.” He likens humankind to a virus, the biosphere needs to get cured from with a “radical and invasive approach,” as from cancer.  In January 2008 Paul Watson was named by The Guardian as one of its “50 people who could save the planet” for the work of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.

Watson published Earthforce!, a guide to strategy for environmental activists in 1993.  In it, he specifically endorsed the tactics of “monkeywrenching” previously described by Dave Foreman and Edward Abbey.  According to Foreman in Eco-Defense—The Field Guide to Monkey-Wrenching, these are tactics of sabotage, covert activity, and direct action.  Watson says he incorporated his own personal experience in writing the book.

In Earthforce! An Earth Warrior’s Guide to Strategy, Watson also expresses disdain for truthfulness in the pursuit of environmental protection goals:

The nature of the mass media today is such that the truth is irrelevant. What is true and what is right to the general public is what is defined as true and right by the mass media. Ronald Reagan understood that the facts are not relevant. The media reported what he said as fact. Follow-up investigation was “old news.” A headline comment on Monday’s newspaper far outweighs the revelation of inaccuracy revealed in a small box inside the paper on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Watson was explicit on this score: “If you do not know an answer, a fact, or a statistic, then simply follow the example of an American President and do as Ronald Reagan did—make it up on the spot and deliver the information confidently and without hesitation.”  In a subsequent book, Ocean Warrior, Watson reiterated this view, saying: “Survival in a media culture meant developing the skills to understand and manipulate media to achieve strategic objectives.”

Paul Watson continued as a crewmember, officer, and skipper (in 1972) aboard several Greenpeace voyages throughout the mid-1970s. He considers himself a founding member of Greenpeace and Greenpeace International, a claim Greenpeace disputes. Friends noted that his personality, his liking to “push himself front and centre”, was to blame in addition to his espousing direct actions that Greenpeace considered too controversial.

In 1977, Watson was expelled from the Greenpeace’s board of directors by a vote of 11 to 1 (Watson himself cast the single vote against it). The group felt his strong, “front and center” personality and frequently voiced opposition to Greenpeace’s interpretation of “nonviolence” were too divisive.  Watson subsequently left the group. The group has since labeled his actions at the time as those of a “mutineer” within their ranks.  That same year, he founded his own group, the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.

During an interview in 1978 with CBC Radio, Watson spoke out against Greenpeace (as well as other organizations) and their role and motives for the anti-sealing campaigns.  Watson accused these organizations of campaigning against the Canadian seal hunt because it is an easy way to raise money and it is a profit maker for the organizations.

Greenpeace has called Watson a violent extremist and will no longer comment on his activities.

Watson was arrested in 1993 in Canada on charges stemming from actions against Cuban and Spanish fishing boats off the coast of Newfoundland.  In 1997, Watson and his then fiancée Lisa Distefano were convicted in absentia by a court in Lofoten, Norway on charges of attempting to sink the small scale Norwegian fishing and whaling vessel Nybrænna on 26 December 1992, and sentenced to serve 120 days in jail but Dutch authorities refused to hand him over to Norwegian authorities although he did spend 80 days in detention in the Netherlands before being released.

There have not been any successful attempts at prosecuting Watson for his activities with Sea Shepherd since the trial in Newfoundland. Watson himself defends his actions as falling within international law, in particular Sea Shepherd’s right to enforce maritime regulations against illegal whalers and sealers.[43] Watson caught a Costa Rican fishing boat poaching in Guatemalan waters while he was on a journey to Costa Rica, having been invited by its president to help in the fight against shark poaching there. The authorities in Costa Rica later filed seven charges of attempted murder against Watson and a colleague, Rob Stewart, in what Watson and Stewart have described as an effort to cover up mafia-funded illegal shark finning operations.  They eventually fled to international waters to escape arrest by Costa Rican coast guards after they had filmed what they attest was mafia-funded shark-finning in private docks. These events are featured in Sharkwater, a documentary about sharks and activism.

Paul Watson leads protest against Makah whaling, Port Angeles, Washington, 1998.

Watson was also told to leave Iceland after having turned himself in to the Icelandic police after disabling two ships in harbor. Kristjan Loftsson of Iceland’s largest whaling company told The New Yorker that Watson is persona non grata in that country.

In April 2010, the Japanese Coast Guard obtained an arrest warrant for Watson “…on suspicion of ordering sabotage activities against Japan’s whaling fleet.”

After his election to the national Sierra Club Board of Directors in 2003, Watson supported an unsuccessful slate of candidates supporting strict immigration controls as an element of a population stabilization policy. This effort was denounced by another candidate in the election, Morris Dees of the Southern Poverty Law Center, as a “hostile takeover” attempt by “radical anti-immigrant activists.”  Watson responded by saying that the only change he was seeking in the organization’s immigration stance was to restore the position it had held before its 1996 “neutrality policy.”  Watson left the Sierra Club board in 2006.

In April 2008, Watson stated that, while the deaths of three Canadian seal hunters (a fourth one is still missing) in a marine accident involving a Canadian Coast Guard vessel and a fishing boat during the 2008 Canadian Commercial Seal Hunt were a tragedy, he felt that the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of seals is an even greater tragedy. Canadian Federal Fisheries Minister Loyola Hearn accused Watson of trivializing the memory of the lost sealers.  Watson replied that Mr. Hearn was trying to distract attention from his government’s incompetence as the boat the men were on capsized while under tow by a Canadian Coast Guard vessel, while his political ambitions continued to support and subsidize an industry that had no place in the 21st Century.  Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams was quoted as saying, “I think what a lot of people don’t realize is that this man is a terrorist.”  In response, Watson said that calling him a ‘terrorist’ might be cute, but it had no foundation in reality, as he had never injured anyone, or been convicted of a crime.  Due to the operations against Canadian seal hunters, Danny Williams called Watson a terrorist and said that the Sea Shepherds were not welcome in the province.

In October 2009 Watson, who carries a US passport, complained to media outlets about having his request for an Australian visa denied. He states that the Australian government was attempting to sabotage the upcoming 2010 Sea Shepherd campaign by denying him entry into the country. Watson and several other shipmates were also unable to join the MV Steve Irwin on its promotional tour of Australia until they were able to provide documentation from the governments of the United States, Canada and Norway, exonerating them from previously claimed acts of violence, specifically claims by Sea Shepherd of intentionally sinking a ship in Norway.

On March 17, 2008 Paul Watson said that he was shot by the Japanese crew or coast guard personnel during the Operation Migaloo anti-whaling campaign in the Southern Ocean. The incident is documented during the season finale of season 1 of the Whale Wars TV reality show, and the first six episodes are covered as a buildup to what is portrayed as the major incident during the campaign. The footage in Whale Wars shows Watson standing on the deck of the Steve Irwin while Sea Shepherd crew throws glass bottles filled with butyric acid at the Nisshin Maru whaling vessel. Butyric acid was used for its foul odor and sticky properties.  The Japanese respond by throwing flashbang devices. Watson is then shown reaching inside his jacket and body armour and remarking “I’ve been hit.” Back inside the bridge of the Steve Irwin, a metal fragment is found inside the vest.

The Japanese Institute of Cetacean Research has dismissed Sea Shepherd’s statements as lies. The Institute and Coast Guard said that they used seven flashbang devices designed to flash and make noise in the air without causing harm.  Neither of the two conflicting accounts have been independently verified. The Australian Foreign Affairs Department had condemned “actions by crew members of any vessel that cause injury”. Two media releases were made on the same day from the office. One said that the Australian Embassy in Tokyo had been informed by the Japanese that the whalers had “fired warning shots” while the updated version used the phrase “‘warning balls’ – also known as ‘flashbangs’ – had been fired”.

Watson has been called an eco terrorist by the Japanese government for his direct action tactics against whalers, and have repeated their position after conflicts during the 2009-10 whaling season.

His leadership style has variously been called arrogant, as well as pushing himself too much “front and center”,” which was cited as being one of the reasons he and Greenpeace parted ways.  The atmosphere aboard his vessels has been compared to an “anarchy run by God”.

At an animal rights convention in 2002, Paul Watson was also quoted as saying, “There’s nothing wrong with being a terrorist, as long as you win. Then you write the history.”  Recently, Fox News commentator Glenn Beck also discussed the comment, criticizing Watson’s views.  Watson responded to Beck’s comments on the official Sea Shepherd website by stating that he had said that but that it was taken out of context, quoting Gerald Seymour‘s “One man’s terrorist is another’s freedom fighter.”

Watson has stated that he does not consider himself a ‘protester‘, but an ‘interventionist‘, as he considers protesting as too submissive.  He often takes the attitude that he represents (or stands in for) law enforcement which is either unwilling or unable to enforce existing laws.

Bob Barker Captain, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

Born and raised in Southern California, Chuck Swift, 44, has a history of involvement in conservation and animal welfare issues spanning the last 20 years.

Swift began volunteering for Sea Shepherd in 1990 and remained involved for nearly a decade. His campaign roster includes the 1994 Whales Forever campaign in which Sea Shepherd was violently attacked by the Norwegian Coast Guard, multiple seal campaigns including the explosive 1996 confrontation in the Magdalene Islands, and a variety of other campaigns before and after.

During his absence from Sea Shepherd, he worked in various professions, earned a degree in Business Administration, a professional certificate in Change Leadership from Cornell University, and as time permits, he continues his studies toward a Masters in Communication and Leadership. Since his return to Sea Shepherd in early 2009, he has functioned as Sea Shepherd’s Deputy CEO, positively influencing both the administrative and ship operations sides of organization – most notably helping to secretly acquire, refit and then ultimately captain Sea Shepherd’s newest ship the Bob Barker during Operation Waltzing Matilda.

Swift believes that the time for talking is over, and prefers a direct action approach on behalf of Sea Shepherd’s customers (“the salty ones”) currently threatened by societal greed and exploitation. While serious about his dedication to the protection of marine and other ecosystems, Swift maintains that a good sense of humor and positive attitude are critical to the success of any movement. He has been heard to say, “We should take our mission seriously, but never ourselves.”

Peter James “Pete” Bethune (born April 4, 1965) is a New Zealand promoter of bio-fuels and conservationist. He is the holder of the world record for the fastest trip around the world in a powerboat and is involved with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. He was captain of the Ady Gil (previously the Earthrace) until it sank following a collision with a Japanese whaling vessel. He was convicted in Japan for a direct action that involved boarding a whaling vessel and received a suspended sentence. 

Personal life and early career

Bethune grew up in Hamilton East, New Zealand as one of five children. He studied science at the University of Waikato and engineering at the University of Auckland. He has two daughters with his wife, Sharyn, from whom he is separated.

He began his career as an oil exploration engineer and worked in the North Sea and Libya. In 1997, he co-founded CamSensor Technologies. The company manufactured automated camera systems for controlling robots used in complex tasks such as cutting up and grading meat carcasses. He later moved to Sydney to establish the business there.

He is adamant about the potential for alternative fuels. In 2003, Bethune wrote a 20,000-word paper while pursuing his Master of Business Administration degree from Macquarie University about the use of renewable energy for road transport. In regards to him enjoying fishing and hunting along with his previous occupations, Bethune told a reporter for The New Zealand Herald: “I’ve come from a very unusual background to be a conservationist.”

Captain of Earthrace

Earthrace, Malmo, Sweden, August 20, 2007.

Based on his research at Macquarie, Bethune set out to prove that hydrocarbon fuels could be replaced by sustainable bio-fuels. He had Earthrace designed and built in order to break the world record for a circumnavigation by a powerboat in hopes that it would call attention to the viability of bio-diesel as an alternative fuel. He mortgaged his New Zealand home and financed the building in the hopes of recouping the expenses from sponsorships. He declined a $4 million sponsorship from a company that would have required them to use regular diesel.

His first attempt began in Barbados on March 10, 2007. He encountered significant delays due to issues with the propellers and other mechanical problems. On the night of March 19, while around 22 kilometres (14 mi) offshore from Guatemala, Earthrace collided with a local fishing boat. No Earthrace crew were hurt, but one of the three crew members from the fishing boat was killed. The crew was absolved of any responsibility after a 10-day investigation during which they were held in custody. The delays prevented them from completing the circumnavigation in record time, but because Earthrace took an official start time when leaving San Diego, the team decided to “restart” with this new start/finish line. They departed San Diego on April 7, 2007 and needed to return by June 21 to break the record. The attempt was abandoned on May 31 after a crack was discovered in the hull shortly after leaving Malaga, Spain.

He departed from Valencia, Spain, in another attempt on March 1, 2008. As a publicity stunt, Bethune and two others had undergone liposuction in order to convert a small amount of their own body fat into fuel. The idea arose from a previous plan to tour New Zealand in a car with an attached mobile bio-diesel plant. He finished at the Spanish port of Sagunto on June 27. The journey was completed in 60 days, 23 hours and 49 minutes, beating the former record by over two weeks. Bethune then embarked on a world tour with the vessel to promote awareness of alternative fuels.

Captain of Ady Gil

Ady Gil, Hobart, Australia, December 16, 2009.

After touring ports around the globe, the Earthrace was put on sale for $2.6 million and Bethune considered using it to interfere with Japanese whaling in the Southern Ocean if a buyer could not be found. Hollywood production-house owner Ady Gil purchased the boat and Earthrace was renamed after him on October 17, 2009. Gil left the ship to Bethune and a crew of five who refitted for Antarctic waters to participate in anti-whaling activities as part of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Bethune said before the operation: “I’m a conservationist. One of the things I’ve learned on Earthrace is stand up for stuff you believe in. Year after year the Japanese go down there and nothing seems to change… If they want to go amping things up a bit, then bring it on.” His wife later told the press that he first became alarmed by the state of the oceans when skippering the vessel during the record attempts.

On January 6, 2010 the Ady Gil was involved in a collision with the Japanese whaling vessel MV Shōnan Maru 2 in the Southern Ocean, and the Ady Gil subsequently sank. An investigation into the collision by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) was inconclusive and unable to assign blame for the collision. AMSA was unable to verify claims made by Sea Shepherd, while the Japanese government declined to participate with the investigation saying any information it had might be needed for an inquiry by its own authorities.

Arrest, trial, and conviction

On February 15, 2010, Bethune boarded the Shōnan Maru 2 claiming to be conducting a citizen’s arrest on her captain, Hiroyuki Komiya, alleging attempted murder and to present a claim for $3 million for the loss of his vessel. Japan’s Institute of Cetacean Research issued a statement calling it a publicity stunt. He used a jet ski to approach the ship then climbed onto its deck after cutting through an anti-boarding net that was draped around the hull. He was detained by the ship’s crew and taken to Tokyo, where he was arrested by the Japanese Coast Guard on March 12 on charges of trespassing.

On April 2, 2010, Bethune was indicted in Japan on five charges: trespassing, assault, illegal possession of a knife, destruction of property and obstruction of business. The assault charge is based on the allegation that he threw a bottle of butyric acid onto the Shōnan Maru 2 days before the boarding, causing chemical burns to a whaler’s face. The Sea Shepherd group claims the burns were self-inflicted when the crewman was shooting pepper spray at the protesters. Bethune could have faced up to 15 years in prison if found guilty of injury, or up to three years if found guilty of trespass. Bethune’s lawyer claims the charges are unfounded and states that his client will strongly deny them. He was held without bond in the maximum security Tokyo Detention Centre while he stood trial.

Bethune’s trial began on May 27. Bethune was charged with intruding on the ship, forcibly obstructing business, violating the Firearms and Swords Control Law and damaging property.

Several major newsmedia reported that Bethune pleaded guilty to four charges while others reported that he admitted four charges or that he conceded four of the charges but has contested an assault charge. Newsreview.com claims that Bethune did not “plead” guilty as there is no such thing as a plea in Japanese criminal proceedings and he and his Japanese lawyers claim that Sea Shepherd’s actions are protected by the United Nations World Charter for Nature, which allows private organizations to interfere in government-like ways in the interest of the environment. Though he admitted to launching a projectile of butyric acid, he contested the assault charge against him on the grounds that he lacked intent to injure the ship’s crew. In his tearful final statement delivered on June 10, Bethune said: “I did not have the intention of hurting crew members. I took action because I wanted to stop Japan’s illegal whaling.” Prosecutors demanded a sentence of two years in prison.

The Labour Party’s Chris Carter accused the New Zealand Government of “washing their hands of the fate” of Bethune. Bethune has received visitations from consular staff. Prime Minister John Key said “…it’s worth noting that I can’t get involved in a prosecution in another country any more than I can get involved in a prosecution in New Zealand. What I can do is make sure the person is being treated fairly.”

On June 4, in what was later said by Paul Watson to be a legal strategy on the part of Sea Shepherd, Sea Shepherd announced that it was no longer going to be formally associated with Bethune since a set of bow and arrows was on the Ady Gil during the anti-whaling operation. The group stressed that the weapon was not intended to be used against any person, and Bethune previously had stated to Animal Planet cameras during Whale Wars filming that he intended to use the bow and arrows to spoil whale meat for commercial use. Sea Shepherd said it would continue to support Bethune during the trial in Japan. On July 7, Pete Bethune was given a two-year suspended sentence. In addition, he was banned from Japan for five years. Bethune was deported to New Zealand on July 9.

Bethune held a press conference upon returning to New Zealand. He told reporters: “My trial in Japan represents a miscarriage in justice. Not because I stood before that court, but because the captain of the Shōnan Maru 2 did not.” He also called the New Zealand Government a “lap dog” for its lack of support.

A anti-whaling activist from New Zealand who was handed a suspended sentence for obstructing the annual Japanese whale hunt has vowed to continue his crusade.

Peter Bethune was deported from Japan after receiving a suspended two-year sentence for obstructing Japanese whaling in the Antarctic Ocean.

Speaking on his return home, Bethune said he would never give up his fight.

But the 45-year-old said he was unsure if he would return to Antarctic waters.

Bethune was detained aboard a Japanese whaler in the middle of the Antarctic Ocean in February after clambering aboard. He was arrested when the vessel returned to Japan.

The former member of the conservation group Sea Shepherd was escorted by immigration officers onto an Air New Zealand flight bound for Auckland on Friday.

Throwing stink bombs

Speaking in the city on Saturday, Bethune said that he was ready for a coffee.

“I want to go to a coffee shop,” he told the NZ Herald newspaper.

“In prison, there’s nothing to do. You are stuck in a cell 23-and-a-half hours a day and I have been looking forward to going to a coffee shop and having a coffee and a muffin.”

AFP news agency reported that Bethune said he would never give up his fight to stop Japanese whaling.

The activist, who spent four months in a Tokyo jail, had pleaded guilty to four out of five charges but had denied assault.

He had admitted charges of trespassing, vandalism, possession of a knife and obstructing business.

Bethune was also found guilty of assault, by throwing stink bombs made of butyric acid – rancid butter – at whalers.

He was part of the Sea Shepherd anti-whaling group, which tries each year to block Japan’s annual hunt.

He was the captain of the Ady Gil, a speed boat split in two during a clash with the whalers on 6 January.

Earlier, he had told his trial that he had wanted to confront the Japanese ship’s captain and hand him a $3 million bill for the destruction of the vessel.

Large numbers of police officers were on duty outside the court in Tokyo where the verdict was delivered on Wednesday.

Japan abandoned commercial whaling in 1986 after agreeing to a global moratorium.

But it says that whaling is part of its culture and catches hundreds of whales each year as part of what it calls a scientific research programme.

Whale Warrior Captain Pete Bethune Free to Return Home

On January 6, 2010, Captain Hiroyuki Komura of the illegal Japanese whaling vessel the Shonan Maru #2 deliberately rammed and destroyed Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s vessel, the Ady Gil. Captain Komura almost killed six Sea Shepherd volunteer crewmembers and did not respond to the Ady Gil’s mayday distress signal. Japanese authorities refused to cooperate in investigations and declined requests by Australian and New Zealand maritime authorities to question Captain Komura.

Instead, Captain Peter Bethune, the man who Captain Komura almost killed and whose ship was destroyed, was taken back to Japan literally as a prisoner of war abducted from the waters of the Australian Antarctic Territory. Captain Bethune was incarcerated for boarding the ship that had rammed and destroyed his ship, when he had every right to board that vessel to confront Captain Komura face-to-face for his crimes.   

Captain Komura should have been the man on trial. He was not, because in the waters of the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary, might—rather than the law—makes right, and Captain Bethune was taken back to Japan to be made an example of and persecuted for defending the whales.

The verdict of the Japanese court was always to be “guilty.” Sea Shepherd was never under any illusion that Captain Bethune would be given a fair trial. In court, there was no discussion of the reason why Captain Bethune boarded the Shonan Maru #2, and Captain Komura was not called as a witness; in short, the court never allowed any evidence of the Ady Gil’s destruction to be heard.

Sea Shepherd spent in excess of half a million U.S. dollars on Captain Bethune’s defense, not because we believed he would be acquitted, but in an attempt to mitigate his sentence.

Captain Bethune was facing up to fifteen years in prison. He was sentenced to two years and he will be deported back to New Zealand on July 9th with his sentence suspended.

Captain Bethune’s mission was successful. His efforts helped save the lives of 528 whales. He was able to take one of the harpoon vessels off the hunt when it was forced to return him to Japan. Most importantly, he exposed the brutality and illegality of the Japanese whaling fleet to the world. When you’re willing to risk your life to save the whales, five months as a Japanese prisoner is a good trade-off for the lives saved.

Captain Bethune is a hero to the Save the Whales movement and he will be welcomed home to New Zealand as a national hero for having the courage to do what his government was fearful of doing—defending whales from the Japanese poachers in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.    

Global support for Captain Bethune and negative publicity about Japan’s whaling program has led to this success. With Captain Bethune, the Japanese government was well aware that each day it held him would be a day that would generate protest against its abominable whale slaughter. This fact, coupled with protests over the showing of the Academy Award winning film “The Cove,” has helped to make the whale and dolphin slaughter the most embarrassing foreign affairs issue currently scandalizing the Japanese government.

The Japanese court acknowledged that Captain Bethune never intended to hurt anyone and was operating under his conviction to save whales from illegal whaling.  The truth is that Japan wants Captain Bethune out of Japan and with the sentence suspended they can quickly send him home.

Sea Shepherd is proud of Captain Bethune’s achievements and satisfied with the results of this ridiculous trial that saw a man incarcerated for saving the lives of whales, yet ignored the crimes of a Japanese poacher who sank a ship and almost killed six conservationists.

Captain Bethune is free, and that is what matters. Sea Shepherd is free to return to the Southern Ocean again to defend the whales, and we intend to be even more effective next season than during our last highly effective season.

Captain Bethune is an inspiration in courage and dedication, and his efforts, his sacrifice, and his resolve will not be forgotten.

Animal Planet announced it has given the green light for a new “Whale Wars” one-hour special series episode featuring Captain Pete Bethune of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.  

During the two-hour season finale, viewers’ last glimpse of eco-pirate and anti-whaling activist Bethune will be when he is taken into custody by Japanese authorities and brought to Tokyo, where he had been held on charges of trespassing, obstructing the passage of a vessel, carrying a knife and damaging property.

According to Animal Planet, Bethune, whose story arc has captivated audiences this season as his beloved vessel the Ady Gil collided with the Shonan Maru 2 and sank into the bottom of the Southern Ocean, spent months in custody but was released on July 9, 2010 and returned home to New Zealand. 

The special is slated to air following the season finale of BLOOD DOLPHINS on Friday, September 17 at 10 PM (ET/PT).

The exclusive one-hour special episode features Bethune recalls his ordeal on board the ship that held him for nearly a month and subsequently the three months he was detained in Japan. 

How was he treated during his detention? What went through his mind during that harrowing time? The outspoken whale warrior will share revelations, opinions and thoughts on the experience after spending four months contemplating his decisions and fate until finally being released. In addition to Bethune’s interview, the special will reveal his background, showcase the most exciting highlights from the season featuring Bethune, Captain Paul Watson and other members of Sea Shepherd, and delve into what’s next for this environmental cowboy.

“Whale Wars viewers really have connected with Pete’s passion this season,” says Marjorie Kaplan, president and general manager of Animal Planet. “His actions in this campaign put him at the center of some very dramatic action.  We’re fortunate that he’s agreed to open up about his extraordinary experiences at sea and on land to save whales.”

Born in Sweden and raised in the United States, Peter, 25, joined the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society as soon as he was old enough to submit an application.

A fervent advocate for the rights of animals, Peter believes that in their capacity to suffer, animals are our equals. From the foreboding Labrador Coast to the treacherous Antarctic continent, Peter has sailed the seven seas trying to put those words into action. He has saved as many lives as he can from illegal whaling, sealing and destructive fishing practices.

In his numerous years with Sea Shepherd, Peter has been held hostage by Ecuadorian fisherman, physically attacked by sealers, assaulted and arrested by the Canadian Coast Guard (twice), involved in a confrontation which included the side-swiping of an illegal whaling ship, been rammed by another and pulled up countless miles of fishing longline. In the war to defend life in the oceans, this Swede is far from neutral.

Between campaigns, Peter is finishing a degree in Media and Communications at Stockholm University and is actively campaigning with the Swedish Animal Rights Alliance.

Helicopter Pilot and Aviation Director, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

American Chris Aultman, 40, of Long Beach, California, is a dedicated environmental conservationist and commercial helicopter pilot living in the United States. Prior to joining the Sea Shepherd team, Aultman served for six years in the United States Marine Corps as a helicopter avionics technician. During this period Chris spent 13 months at sea and became a veteran of the Gulf War.

Aultman’s first experience with the destruction of the world’s oceans was seeing the disastrous effects of the millions of barrels of oil dumped into the Persian Gulf during that war. This and many other experiences caused Chris to start to see the world for what it really was, and nothing was ever the same again.

Many years later, Chris met the founder of Ocean Defenders Alliance, who was tabling for Sea Shepherd Conservation Society at a local scuba show. Already a commercial helicopter pilot and flight instructor, Chris asked if Sea Shepherd ever needed helicopter pilots. This proved to be a very ironic question since it was his involvement with Ocean Defenders Alliance that brought him to meet Captain Paul Watson and become the helicopter pilot for Sea Shepherd.

Chris has flown during the last four Antarctic Whale Defense campaigns and is ready to return to the world’s oceans for the defense and conservation and marine wildlife.

We recently reported that Michelle Rodriguez will be joining Captain Paul Watson and the Sea Shepherd on their next voyage to the Antarctic. Now Rodriguez has revealed that she will follow a vegan diet while on the ship.

Rodriguez explained, “I’m not (a vegetarian) but I will have to be because on the ship, it’s a vegan ship – you can’t be a hypocrite; you can’t be sitting there trying to save animals and then killing them. That’s just weird.”

The Avatar actress admits that she is inspired by Captain Watson and acknowledges the dangers involved.

“I have a tendency not to think before I do things, which you know what, it really adds a little spice to life – because if you thought too much about things before you do them, you’d never do them,” explained Rodriguez.

Ages 27 to 54 are ruled by the sum of the day of birth and the 4th, 5th, and 6th letters of the name.

Daryl Christine Hannah       December 3rd, 1960

3 (born on the 3rd of the month) + 25 (y is the 25th letter of the alphabet) + 12 (l is the 12th letter of the alphabet) + 3 (C is the 3rd letter of the alphabet) = 43

So from ages twenty-seven to fifty-four she has the numbers 3 (born on the 3rd of the month), 40 (sum of the 4th, 5th, and 6th letters of the name) and 43 (3+40=43) going on.

Shannon Mann

Quartermaster, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society
Shannon was born in the prairies of Canada, spending summers exploring the northern forests and lakes of the Canadian flatlands. Early in her life she developed an affinity for animal life and their interaction with the environment. Shannon has always had a compassionate eye to the earth and the creatures that inhabit it. Scholastic by nature, she studied drosophila flies during university life and later developed high-tech software for cell phone companies. However, her passion for the beleaguered earth and its creatures was never far from her heart. 

In 2005, Shannon heard Paul Watson speak at the Annual Animal Rights Conference in Los Angeles. She understood immediately that his was a cause worth being involved in. She returned from the summer conference, contacted the Sea Shepherd, and was accepted as a volunteer for the Antarctic campaign of 2006-2007. 

Shannon’s tenacious personality and rock-solid belief system have perpetuated her understanding of boundaries, limits and the power of the human spirit. She credits Watson with helping her to understand the power of dedication and fight. During her journey with the Sea Shepherd, she’s developed confidence in her ability to navigate the sea and whip up delicious vegan fare, all while fighting for the animals who are helpless to defend themselves. 

While Shannon battles on the rocky seas, she relies on the kindred spirit of her sister to care for her best buddy Jack, her beloved rescue dog back home. Shannon’s non-profit organization FLEA (Friends of Life, Environment, and Animals) was granted charitable status in Canada in 2008, fueling her passion for the environment and shaping a plan for her future endeavors. Her most passionate goal is to put an end to whaling in the Antarctic Sanctuary once and for all.

Deckhand, Cook and Rescue Swimmer, Bob Barker

Fiona is living her ultimate dream by being able to work full time representing animals and their rights around the world. This year she was a crew member onboard the Bob Barker as part of the Sea Shepherd’s Operation Waltzing Matilda Whale Defense Campaign 2009-2010 in Antarctica.

A Sydney, Australia, girl, Fiona, 32, grew up by the sea and the bush with a natural love of everything wild.

Founder of Excellence in World Zoos, she was able to combine her love of animals with her two degrees of Economics and Property. Her organization instigates redevelopment of poor enclosures in developing countries. Her first project was the Australian Zone of the Beijing Zoo in time for the Olympics.

Fiona has worked as a property consultant for eight years, but always weaved in volunteering with animals throughout this time. She spent six months volunteering in Africa and America in wildlife rehabilitation, volunteered in three zoos and is now head of the youth committee for the Foundation for the National Parks and Wildlife in New South Wales.

With a human population predicted to double to 12 billion, Fiona believes there is a huge amount of work to be done in her life to prevent the extinction of many species of wildlife.

Chief Cook, Bob Barker 

Growing up in South Africa, Amber Paarman noticed injustice at an early age and saw striking parallels between the exploitation of human beings and animals. Raised as a vegetarian, she also recognized that change only comes about by taking action. Rather than turning her back on the abandoned and abused animals in South Africa, Amber opened up her home to many dogs, cats, horses and birds. But it took Sea Shepherd arriving in Cape Town after the 2005 Antarctic Whale Defense Campaign for Amber to take her passion for animals to a global level.

Since then, she has pulled up long lines in the Galapagos, opposed sealing in Canada, and tackled whalers in the Antarctic. Amber can be found in the galley combining her love for animals with her love of food. With health, nutrition, and cruelty-free as her main ingredients, Amber keeps the Bob Barker crew well-fed and ready for action.

Between Sea Shepherd campaigns, Amber actively campaigns against vivisection, fur farming, and fox hunting around the world, and finds the time to expose animal abuse wherever she goes. For Amber, being an animal rights activist is a full-time job. Not to lose sight of what she is fighting for, Amber also always finds time to help animals directly by volunteering at animal shelters and by teaching people about the environmental impacts of a meat-based diet.

Amber hopes that by fighting for whales and cooking vegan food, she is able to motivate people to reassess the way that other animals are seen as food as well.

Bosun’s Mate, Bob Barker

Growing up in Atlanta, Andrea’s passion for protecting animals first began on land. Working with Sea Shepherd in 2005 to save baby harp seals, she developed a profound desire to protect marine life.

This past year, while on sabbatical from her job as a public defender in Brooklyn, she has been volunteering with Sea Shepherd. She spent the summer investigating environmental crimes in the Galapagos Islands and then joined the Bob Barker on its maiden voyage in Africa.

Driven by a desire to save lives – whether whales, seals or humans – Andrea is devoted to protecting all of Earth’s inhabitants. Besides working with Sea Shepherd, she saved lives in a different capacity – in the courtroom. Providing help to those who could not afford a lawyer, she spent four years as a public defender for the Legal Aid Society of New York City. She is currently co-founding the Galapagos’s first animal hospital, Darwin Animal Doctors.

Andrea hopes to inspire other people to cherish and protect all life, whether in their own town or in the most remote regions of the planet.

How did your training in the Navy prepare you for your position with Sea Shepherd?
I spent my six and a half years in the Navy as a surface warfare officer, where I was assigned to a marine transport ship in San Diego, California, and a frigate out of Seattle, Washington. On both of those vessels, I was required to be a small-boat officer, which made me very familiar with Sea Shepherd’s Delta and Gemini launching, recovery, and general small-boat operations. I’ve spent countless hours in a Navy small boat. I was also required to qualify as an officer of the watch, so I had experience with ship maneuvering (but not through ice!), navigation, rules of the road, helicopter operations, radars, radio communication, and everything else that comes along with being on the bridge of a 300- to 500-foot ship. As a bonus, I was also a helicopter control officer on the frigate, ensuring the safety of a helicopter when launching and recovering.
The difference: Sea Shepherd plays music on the bridge, we get to ride the bow in major storms, our ship’s log has drawings and colorful stamps (after three mistakes in the Navy, you have to rewrite the log) … and the Steve Irwin is vegan!

What was the most rewarding part of your post with Sea Shepherd?

I would say being able to utilize my skills in an appropriate arena—the ocean—and feeling useful. The ultimate for an animal activist is to go on campaign and be in the action and feel the wind and sea spray and life as opposed to being in an office, which, of course, is important as well.
It was wonderful. The day we found the fleet, a minke whale crossed in between us and the factory ship, Nisshin Maru, and we knew we were his or her protector. The whale could safely carry on and live another peaceful day, and to do that for at least one whale was a mission accomplished. But we knew we couldn’t stop there … whaling needs to end.

What was one of the most difficult things about fighting against whalers?

When we were out in the Southern Ocean, it was four against one. The harpoon ships are so fast and maneuverable (they could do a 180 in their own wake!) and easily did circles around us. It made it difficult to ever feel as though we had the upper hand, and we often felt a bit like a tin can. It would be amazing if we were no longer outnumbered.
What animal rights issues are you most passionate about?
It was very difficult to decide where to focus my efforts, but I thought Sea Shepherd was the perfect place since I have skills for ship-handling, guts for action, and a heart for humanity.
Immediately, I would like to work on getting Sea Shepherd another ship to use down in Antarctica. But in addition to focusing on marine life, I will also be concentrating my efforts on ending vivisection—another arena of extreme cruelty to animals.

Whale Wars
can be a pretty intense show. Have you ever had a moment where you thought you couldn’t keep going? What made you persevere?

There was never a moment when I thought I couldn’t keep going. All the action was extremely intense with lots of adrenaline going through everyone’s blood. The action became very addicting, and when we had to leave the whaling fleet, it was very, very disappointing. I was not ready to leave. We definitely need more ships out there.

Now for the question on everyone’s mind: How has being named PETA’s Sexiest Naval Woman positively affected your life?

It’s a very fun title to have, and who wouldn’t be honored to have the title of PETA’s Sexiest Naval Woman? I thought there might only be two vegetarians out there to compete with, but what a wonderful surprise to hear that there were so many! I’m looking forward to wearing my winning T-shirt and sparking some interesting conversations with animal lovers, as well as educating those who want to debate the issues.

Can we look forward to a third season of the show?

Oh, yes. There is a third season. Sea Shepherd has just merged with Earthrace, a round-the-world, record-breaking trimaran, so I suspect that the tactics next year are going to be completely different. Anything could happen when you bring a boat that looks like a spaceship down to the Southern Ocean!

Will you be on deck again?

Oh, I got so addicted to Sea Shepherd’s campaigns that I want to go on all of them! Before the merge, I met Earthrace in New Zealand and loved the boat, so I will be trying out to crew on it. With Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s new popularity, there are so many new, interesting, skilled, and keen volunteers, so I’m not sure if I will be selected, but my fingers are crossed!

Locky MacLean from “Whale Wars,” whose full name is Lockhart MacLean, is the First Officer on the Steve Irwin vessel in the Animal Planet reality docu-drama.

Round-the-world sailor and environmentalist, Locky (“Whale Wars”) was born in France, grew up on the west coast of Canada and went to the University of California at Santa Barbara. Locky MacLean has lived on a solar-and-wind-powered sailboat for the last 10 years, sailing to over 25 countries on four continents, crossing the world’s oceans. These voyages have led Locky (“Whale Wars”) to coral islands in the Pacific, which are threatened by climate change; forests in New Guinea and Indonesia being cleared for palm oil; and the war-torn coasts of Sri Lanka, Yemen and Sudan.

Originally involved with Sea Shepherd 10 years ago on board the Ocean Warrior during the SOS Sea Turtle Campaign and Long-lining Campaign in the Caribbean, Central America and Galapagos, Locky MacLean has worked for Greenpeace Asia-Pacific and Greenpeace International on board the ships Rainbow Warrior II and Esperanza in Europe, Australia and Asia. However, Locky (“Whale Wars”) has returned to “the hardest working and most effective NGO” in the world (Sea Shepherd), and is most happy being back and part of a cause he believes in.

Locky MacLean is passionate about conserving the world’s biodiversity, and, with his wife Barbara, a journalist and photographer from Brazil, is currently at the helm of the Sea Shepherd vessel Steve Irwin en route to the Mediterranean to protect the endangered bluefin tuna.

Locky (“Whale Wars”) is also working on the “Blue Ship” project, a 30-meter solar- and wind-powered aluminum expedition sailing vessel to identify and set up marine reserves in the world’s last pristine regions.

Quartermaster and International Executive Director, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society
Kim McCoy, 34, is a passionate animal and environmental advocate with an undergraduate degree in business administration and a J.D. specializing in international environmental law. 
 
McCoy graduated from law school with honors, and while there, she served as editor-in-chief of the internationally acclaimed Animal Law Review. She also interned with the International Environmental Law Project, with a special focus on CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora); the Center for Environmental Justice, a Sri Lankan NGO based in Colombo; and the National Center for Animal Law. McCoy is a member of MENSA (the “high IQ society”) and founder of the MENSA Animal Law Special Interest Group. She is an official member of the National Disaster Animal Response Team, where she most recently assisted with animal rescue in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. 
 
McCoy is a published law review author, public speaker, and scuba diver with a special fondness for diving with large sharks. She is a certified black belt in American karate, yoga instructor, and mountain paraglider. Her experiences traveling and living overseas (particularly in developing countries) — coupled with a strong desire to put an end to animal cruelty and suffering — led her to choose a vegan lifestyle nearly five years ago. Having previously lived in Japan for two years, she has a fondness for Japanese culture (not including the slaughter of innocent cetaceans) and a special interest in the Japanese public’s general lack of awareness and acceptance of propaganda surrounding the issue of illegal whaling.
McCoy is deeply committed to the defense and conservation of marine animals worldwide and believes firmly in the merits of aggressive, nonviolent direct action as an effective and necessary means to accomplish these goals.

Ady Gil Crewmember, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

After working eight years for the Dutch police force specializing in organized environmental crime, Laurens, 29, realized there was an area of the world where no authority is upholding international conservation laws: our oceans. After little research, Laurens discovered the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society as the only organization willing to stand up against the evil powers committing the atrocities that destroy our Blue Planet.

With more then 70 percent of our oxygen coming from the oceans, healthy oceans are vital for life on Earth. Humanity has to do whatever it takes to protect the great waters. For Laurens “doing whatever it takes” meant giving up his job as a crime investigator, selling his belongings and moving to Australia to join the Steve Irwin crew for the 2007/08 campaign: Operation Migaloo. The campaign saved over 500 whales. But unfortunately whaling wasn’t shut down forever.

Laurens returned for the 2008/09 campaign: Operation Musashi as the Japanese whalers returned to Antarctica to slaughter the gentle giants once more, and again in 09/10 for Operation Waltzing Matilda. This time, he was on the Ady Gil crew before it was destroyed, and then the Bob Barker briefly as the Ady Gil crew transferred over before returning to shore. The former crime investigator decided to rejoin the Sea Shepherd crew to help shut down one of the most barbaric crimes against life the world has ever seen: the slaughter of whales in a Whale Sanctuary.

In between campaigns, Laurens works as a freelance writer and sport instructor.

Benjamin Potts

Chief Cook, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society
Born and bred in Sydney, Australia, Ben grew up amongst rocky sandstone escarpments, emerald coastal rainforests, diverse eucalypt wood lands and beautiful sandy southern beaches. Surrounded by two large national parks and the myriad of wildlife that skirt white mans’ invasion of the Sydney basin, his home was an ideal place to explore and develop a love of the natural world in his youth. 

Ben’s father worked for the National Parks and Wildlife Service. He used to bring home animals that he had seized from smugglers and trappers. These animals would either be taken to a wildlife refuge for rehabilitation or, if they were local, released back into the bush. These animals gave Ben the opportunity to form friendships and an appreciation of Australia’s unique and amazing wild citizens and he considers these creatures to be part of his extended family. 

After school, Ben spent more time in the bush as an infantry soldier in the Australian Army followed by a number of jobs ranging from outdoor guide to tree planter, traveling throughout eastern Australia from the tropics to the snowy high country. In Tasmania, he witnessed first-hand the destruction of the last remaining stands of Australia’s old growth forests which contain some of the oldest and tallest trees in the world. The animals in these forests lose their homes when the forest is cleared for monoculture plantations. Seeing his country and its inhabitants destroyed for a quick buck made him extremely distressed and angry, and he vowed to defend it in the future. 

This decision led him to volunteer with Sea Shepherd to defend the great whales. He had seen documentaries featuring Sea Shepherd, and he wanted to be involved in an organization which is on the front-line of defending threatened species and attempting to halt man’s wholesale destruction of the natural world. He is extremely proud and felt privileged to have been a crew member in the lead up to and during the 2008 campaign which was a pivotal experience in his life and gave him the confidence and drive to fight for life on this planet. 

Ben plans to further his education in the environment by studying conservation biology and ecology as well as continuing to be involved with Sea Shepherd and local direct action environment group, Still Wild Still Threatened.

LAURA DAKIN

Chief Cook

Laura was born on November 16, 1983, in the small fishing village of Dorset in Weymouth, England. Growing up traveling among England, Bermuda, India and Australia, she developed a huge love of the oceans, the forests, and life on Earth. She spent much of her childhood caring for injured and abused animals and developed a deep concern for the welfare of all wildlife.

Angered, frustrated and determined to make a difference in the world, Laura set out to learn how she could be most effective, and in January 2005, she turned that anger into action by becoming a Sea Shepherd crew member.

While living in Bermuda and working for the fashion industry (of all things!), she spotted the Farley Mowat (one of Sea Shepherd’s ships), where it was preparing to sail for Canada to defend the baby harp seals. After a short tour on board, the deeply moved aspiring activist could not resist and asked the Captain when the ship was leaving. “Tomorrow morning,” he replied. She raced home, packed a bag, and called her boss to beg for four weeks of holiday leave. That was four years ago, and she has never looked back! Her passion, determination, and resolve to end the slaughter of innocent marine life grow every day.

In her four and a half years as a Sea Shepherd crew member, she has experienced collisions with illegal whaling vessels, pulled in miles of longline, and has had the pleasure of freeing sharks, turtles, and manta rays from the grasp of the longline’s deadly hooks. She has been physically attacked by poachers and has been arrested on the ice floes protecting baby harp seals, but her commitment is long from over. Laura will not stop until the war for the Earth is won.

LUKE VAN HORN

Communications Officer, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

Born in the United States, Luke was raised on a small dairy farm in southern Michigan. He attributes his strong work ethic and self-reliance to growing up in this environment.

Luke went on to explore the western United States, spending several years in the Rocky Mountains and most recently on the West Coast. It was during this time that he developed a deep appreciation for the natural world and realized the importance to protect it.

In recent years, Luke has become increasingly concerned that our impact on the environment is reaching a tipping point. He felt the best way to make a personal impact was to join Sea Shepherd in the southern ocean defending a mammal both cherished and decimated by humans.

When he’s not on campaign, Luke works as a software engineer. In his free time, he enjoys trail running, sailing and hiking. He currently lives in Washington state.

—————————————————————————————-

Luke Van Horn,who’s new to “Whale Wars” this season, spoke with the Mole about life aboard the “Steve Irwin.” Here’s more from our conversation:

What’s a typical day like aboard this ship?
A typical day depends on what is going on. Sometimes I would be woken up twice during the night to handle situations. But a normal morning, I’m up, go the bridge and make sure our email is working properly. Paul (Watson, founder of Sea Shepherd) is up, but he seems to always be up, he just goes and goes and goes! I had to make sure all the systems were working. If I had side projects going,I had to do some triage.
 
Is there any one task that’s absolutely key?
Yes, the most important thing is getting the ice charts that show where the ice floes are. That’s crucial for us. It can change so quickly too. So interpreting that data and trying to plan ahead for what the currents are doing, that takes a lot of time.
 
Did you ever have any down time at all, whether a day or a few hours?
Those times were few and far between. We were able to relax a little for New Year’s and Christmas. We took the time for ourselves, just to hang out. One of the downsides of this campaign is that you’re with this crew of amazing individuals and you wish you had more time to spend just being with them, getting to know them better. 
 
How was the food on board? In season one, we saw how busy the cooks were feeding everyone these healthy vegan meals.
The galley staff is amazing, one of the hardest working groups on the ship. Cooking for more than 40 people is pretty amazing, and it’s physically demanding to do it on a ship. 
 
Did you lose weight on the voyage? 
I lost 15 pounds, but I didn’t get seasick. Most people (on a ship) have a real loss of both energy and a desire to eat. And you had to be careful that you didn’t overeat so there was always enough to go around.
 
Before being involved in “Whale Wars,” what was your own whale experience, had you seen pods of them in the wild, or at Sea World?
I was pretty limited. Yes, I had seen them at Sea World, and was not a whale expert before the campaign. I fully respect them. Getting to see them up close—to see a pod of Orcas in the wild, and the Minnkes, it is really indescribable, especially down there, surrounded by icebergs and penguins. You never expect to see whales like that.
 
You mentioned how important email is to the crew, it almost makes this journey sound like anybody’s office!
Email is a lifeline and I’m so grateful we have that. It’s a challenge on this ship. It’s an older ship, built in the 70s and the wiring is old. The cool part of it is the range of electronics that we have, but that also makes email a challenge. Being able to be in touch with friends back home, to be in contact, even if we do have to be careful with what we say, is so important. Email is relatively modern but I cannot imagine doing this without it. And for the cost to be down to where it can be used on a campaign like ours…I know everyone is grateful we have it.
 
What can viewers expect to see this season, without giving too much away?
Well, there is no shortage of dynamic events. You’ll see that the rolling seas and weather make it hard to do your job. All those swings and the wind, you’ll see cables can just fly off. And for everyone, there is the tiredness of your body being on overload, trying to do everything. There are a lot of new people on board this time so everyone is adjusting..
 
What made you want to participate in Sea Shepherd’s mission, had you been involved in animal activism before?
Other than volunteering at a local animal shelter, no. But seeing the industrial slaughtering and packaging of whales, the factory aspect of it—it’s disturbing, and I’m planning to go back for another campaign.

Ship engineer Larry Routledge stands in the cabin as he prepares the new Earthrace stealth high-tech anti-whaling powerboat brought by the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society for its imminent deployment for Perth and then the Southern Ocean, on November 5, 2009 in Auckland, New Zealand. The 24-metre trimaran has paint which deflects radar waves, so can approach Japanese whaling vessels almost unseen. It will join the Society’s ship Steve Irwin on a three-month voyage protesting against the Japanese whaling program, leaving Perth on December 7.

Merryn is a doctor with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

She works in community paediatrics, is a DEA member from Victoria and is a doctor on the Steve Irwin in Antarctica hassling Japanese whalers. Here is her first blog. I suspect that many DEA members are envious. You can donate by going to  www.seashepherd.org -Editor.

Hello all!
 
We made our way down to Antarctica on the Steve Irwin over the last two weeks, after a farewell party in Perth that included Bindi Irwin singing a song about friendship with whales. I had to push my fashionable cynicism aside – it was lovely and afterwards she and her brother did a great job of being normal kids, quietly trailing close behind their Mum.

Alarming evidence of climate change when we saw an iceberg at 47 degrees south… usually they don’t appear til the fifties at least.

We’ve been tailed since we left Australian waters by a Japanese harpoon “spy” vessel keeping track of our movements. There have been with a few spectacular run-ins on the high seas and then in the ice. A couple of days ago, as we neared the continent we were slowed in an ice field. Their ship, the Shonan Maru 2, made multiple runs at the side of our vessel, all the while announcing “I am turning. Keep clear”. It was pretty outrageous. As was their aiming an acoustic weapon at our helicopter pilot when he flew over them! Weapons are illegal in Antarctic waters and interfering with a pilot is prohibited under international aviation treaties to which Japan and Australia are signatories. As we know: not necessarily a dererrent to the whaling fleet.

We sought assistance from the French Antarctic base at Durmont D’Urville and spent a couple of days in their waters. Our first officer helicoptered over to the base for a meeting. The French were supportive, providing an official letter offering their support for our mission and that we could take shelter from the whaling vessel with their ice breaker “La Astrolabe”. (And I believe from photographic evidence they may have given our helicopter pilot and first officer some great cheese though they haven’t told us vegan crew!).

For the last two days we’ve been anchored in Commonwealth Bay, for tactical reasons (can’t discuss!)- which has given us a chance to drill up and do some amazing once in a lifetime activist-tourism.

After the “penguin swim” – jumping off the side of the ship into the freezing antarctic waters, no wet suit (people were very amused when I took the defibrillator out on deck in case of long QT syndrome) – we went in our delta boat onto the Antarctic continent, to visit the Australian Antarctic explorer Mawson’s hut.

It was absolutely magical. The weather was perfect: a couple of degrees above zero, perfectly lit, no wind. Every vista of a penguins, ice, ocean, icebergs, grey granite rocks, penguins and seals under a bright but moody sky looked like a professional photograph; I’m sure a set designer couldn’t create a more remarkable place! (No offence meant to any scenic painters in my audience 😉

There are literally thousands of Adelie penguins here and they are just gorgeous. They swim and dive around the boat, doing mega-quick jumps above the water surface like dolphins. And cause great hilarity when they hop vertically out of the water and land upright on the ice (or once, in our small boat!).

There was small colony of huge Waddel seals was lying around on the ice, turning lazily to size us up before settling back to sleep like cats. Neither seals or penguins were particularly bothered by our presence – in fact groups of the Adelies would run up to stare at us, or follow us around curiously. One of our crew, Michael, a professional nature photographer (his amazing frog pictures can be found at www.itsawildlife.com) was in heaven.

We walked up to the penguin rookery overlooking spectacular ice cliffs with a view of Commonwealth Bay, then took tours of Mawson’s hut with the conservators and enjoyed the hospitality of the 10 base members. Doctor:patient ratios were pretty favorable: they have two doctors on their expedition team – one is also a qualified engineer (!), the other the expedition leader, and they compare constructing their bases to orthopaedic surgery.

Personally I was really excited to see one of the world’s longest-situated tidal sensors pulled out of the water by the guys from the base with some of our divers. The data it contains is important for measuring sea level rise caused by global warming. Matt style, I now have a climate change holiday snap to add to my climate change talk!

Soon we’ll be in the thick of the campaign again. I’ll be thinking of you all over the next few weeks and would love to hear news from home – especially some post-Copenhagen updates (though I’m afraid they might be depressing), and especially if the Liberal party is tearing themselves apart. Looking forward to sharing some stories and photos when I arrive home!

Love, best wishes, merry Christmas!!

SIMON AVERY

Bosun’s Mate and Boat Driver, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

Born in Britain and resident of the United States, Simon, 44, joined the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society as a deckhand aboard their flagship, The Steve Irwinin 2008. During the Operation Musashi Antarctic Campaign, one of Simon’s principal roles was small boats driver in operations against the Japanese whaling fleet.

Simon’s boat-driving skills were honed over the previous decade while serving as a land steward on some of the wildest and most spectacular islands off the coast of Britain. A conservation biologist with more than 13 years experience of protecting threatened marine wildlife, Simon feels that his instinctive passion for wildlife conservation naturally led him to volunteer for an organization that is at the vanguard of the struggle to end the savage pillaging of the world’s oceans by the combined forces of greed and ignorance.

When not volunteering with Sea Shepherd, Simon works as a biologist, working to protect seabirds and other wildlife for a range of organizations, both in Britain and the United States.

ARNE FEUERHAHN

Deckhand, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

Arne grew up in northern Germany and has always had a close connection to the sea – both as a small boy exploring the shores of the North Sea and later as a diver down in the deep.

Before his time as volunteer crewmember with Sea Shepherd, Arne was an unemployed vegan, a so-called “dumpster diver” in the backyards of Berlin. At some point, he decided to change his life and try to give those who cannot defend themselves a voice. So, with a little motivation, he sent in a crew application and eight months later found himself chasing the Japanese whaling fleet in the defense of the whales with Sea Shepherd for Operation Musashi.

Arne will start his nautical studies this summer to gain more knowledge about ships and seafaring. In a few years, he hopes to set up a new organization of his own, which will work hand-in-hand with Sea Shepherd and other conservation groups to protect life in our oceans.

Chadwick Halstead

Deckhand, Steve Irwin

Chad Halstead, 25, was born and raised in Philadelphia. Chad is a long-time animal rights activist, ethical vegan and adventure seeker, who believes that only our actions of today will make the difference in our world tomorrow. As a crewmember on the deck department and driver of the Delta (small boat), he had joined Sea Shepherd to do his part in resistance against the common destruction of this world’s lands and oceans. With an interest in Arctic travel and life at sea, he was more than comfortable spending months in the Southern Ocean defending whales.

When not on the ship, Chad is surfing, painting, enjoying life with friends and looking forward to the upcoming campaigns with hopes to influence changes not only in the oceans, but the way people consume and dispose of their resources on land as well. He believes that oceans, rivers, lakes, marshlands, beaches and forests are all interconnected, and unless people find ways to reduce their impact on the environment, everything will soon fail. Chad encourages everyone to be a part of the solution and not the problem.

A Ph.D. candidate, qualitative researcher, and tutor in Information Systems (i.e. a professional student), Andrew has a wide variety of academic interests covering strategic decision-making and governance within NGOs; not-for-profits and activist groups; online activist communities; and corporate governance and corporate social responsibility.

Also a long-time environmental, political, and social activist, Andrew has experience spanning from time spent on the frontline of direct actions (blockades, occupations, protests, rallies etc.) right through to roles of a more strategic, organizational and/or administrative capacity (e.g. president of a student union). At all times and in all capacities, Andrew is always willing to put himself physically on the line for his beliefs.

A student of martial arts from a young age, Andrew has grown up believing and adhering to the principles of Bushido (the way of the warrior) and the maxim penned by Miyamoto Musashi of “Bun Bu Itchi” or, roughly translated, pen and sword in accord (words and actions are one).

Outside of work, Andrew is a veteran boarder (snow, skate and wake), coffee addict, music lover, vegetarian/vegan (for over 20 years), chronic procrastinator, and quixotic daydreamer extraordinaire.

This was his first campaign with Sea Shepherd. Prior to Operation Musashi, Andrew and his current wife, Molly, spent six months on board The Steve Irwin readying it for its campaign.

He hopes to come back for future campaigns with Sea Shepherd.

Deckhand, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

Born in Adelaide, South Australia, Molly is an anthropologist who completed her honor’s thesis on environmentally sustainable communities in Australia. Frustrated with the inaction of academia, she left her hometown to pursue her own three-year study of eco-communities. She filmed as she went in the hopes of creating a documentary that would encourage and give direction to fellow eco-panicked city dwellers.

Molly first heard of Sea Shepherd when she was locked onto a log loader in an anti-old growth logging action alongside a Sea Shepherd deckhand. During the 36 hours they were locked together, he explained that a Sea Shepherd campaign was 95% grunt work and 5% glory; when you find the fleet and it starts running, whaling ends, and it makes everything worthwhile. Molly saw a tangible way to create positive change, and she was sold.

Ending whaling is important to Molly as she sees it as a stepping stone in the greater environmental struggle. Living oceans are often overlooked in the environmental movement, but they are vital. Oceans absorb 80% of the world’s carbon and contain the majority of its species. To want to protect something, your heart must go out to it, so for Molly, the fight to save the oceans starts with the whales. They are a symbol of the living ocean, which is dying in our time. Molly believes if we can’t save the whales then we can’t save the oceans, and if we can’t save the oceans then we can’t save ourselves.

“I think we are at that point in human history where we are required to quit our day jobs. Many people serve the environment part time whilst at the same time working to save money for their future, but without the environment and planet to live on, there is no future. I wish everyone would just stop right now and volunteer his/her life to saving the environment: Find an organization you like, and if you can’t find one, form your own organization. The best part is there is nothing to lose because money won’t be the currency of the future; adaptability, life experience and practical skills will be wealth. The feeling of fighting for the Earth is fantastic. It is what living really feels like. I wish every single person could experience that feeling,” says Molly.

Between bouts of grassroots activism, Molly enjoys making ethnographic documentaries and working as a circus trainer in Hobart, Tasmania. In her spare time she loves snowboarding, roller derby, live music, the cinema as well as doing laps at the pool, exploring the library, trading vintage bargains, searching for the best coffee in town, traveling, and being married to the most gorgeous man in the world (Andrew Perry).

Photography has given Chantal Henderson a wild life on the high seas.

8th June 2008

The baby sea lion is stuck in a moment he can’t get out of.

As he stares into the eyes of a nine-metre orca on the remote shores of an Argentinian beach, he has no idea what is about to happen.

He is only four weeks old, and yet to develop the skills that alert him to this kind of danger.

A moment later, the little one is gone – lost in the jaws of the huge mammal, known as Mel.

And a few metres away, Chantal Henderson is perched quietly, as she captures the moment on her camera.

The orca she is photographing is one of a group of 22, seven of which have learnt how to intentionally strand themselves on the pebble beaches of Peninsula Valdez to hunt baby sea lions from the shore.

The baby sea lion is just one of many who will become a meal during the orca season from February to April, and the action is played out in much the same way as in a David Attenborough documentary Chantal saw as a child.

“I was quite young when I saw it and I always had it in the back of my mind that I would go there,” she said.

In the last few years, the Cotton Tree local has been to Argentina nine times as part of her work with Punta Norte Orca Research, a non-profit organisation she helped to create in 2004.

One of Chantal’s photos of the ocra in Argentina

She went back there this orca season to continue to document the lives of the animals she has come to know so well.

“It’s pretty amazing. The orcas are quite incredible animals. It’s quite a rush to be within arm’s reach,” she says.

“There’s a male that’s 20 to 25 years old. He should be hunting but he sits back all the time.

“Jazmin’s a really strong female leader. She’s always quite curious about what we’re doing. She lifts her eye up all the time to check us out.”

Chantal says she is able to identify the whales based on their scars, fin shape and social behaviour.

“They tend to group with the same ones all the time,” she says.

“You know when they’re about to hunt because the baby seals will just be playing and quite oblivious to the orca there.

“Then they get their tails thrusting and come in at a hundred miles an hour to the shore. Not many people would like to see it, actually.”

Her return trip to Argentina was the latest in a string of adventures for Chantal, who recently boarded the Sea Shepherd ship named after Steve Irwin.

The Coast-based chiropractor spent December and January chasing Japanese whalers in the Southern Ocean, while working as the designated photographer on the ship.

She was able to keep her friends and family updated regularly via email, as she captured moments that made world headlines, such as when two of the protesters were taken hostage by the Japanese whalers.

Chantal also became a headline herself, after she was flung into the freezing cold Antarctic waters. She was on the smaller Zodiac, which was being lowered into the water from the main ship when the accident happened.

Her boyfriend, David Jennings, was the driver of the Zodiac, but jokingly insists the accident was not his fault.

“It was the guy holding the bower lines,” he adds.

The pair met the day before the ship was due to depart from Melbourne, but both insist that finding love had been the last thing on their minds at the time.

Like Chantal, the American says he has wonderful memories of his time working as a “good pirate” in the Southern Ocean.

“I was looking for another adventure and I really love Antarctica,” he says.

“It’s beautiful – really foreign. It’s almost like you don’t belong there.

“It’s so simple and so harsh… The colours are reduced to just the whites, blues, greys and blacks.”

Chantal is planning an exhibition of her photographs on the Coast in June, to raise money for the Sea Shepherd.

Erwin Vermeulen is Dutch and is working with Sea Shepherd in the engine room as chief engineer since August 2009.

1) Prior to be working on ships of Sea Shepherd , you spent twenty years working on commercial vessels , right? What’s the big difference now of working for an environmental organization ?

Erwin Vermeulen: On commercial ships you feel like a job with all the rules, and I use now all aware of the work I have done all these years in the organization. The big difference here is that everyone works together, everyone is here with a purpose. Everyone comes from a different reality and history, but these people are on board with the same goal. Already in commercial vessels , there are all the work for the career they want to build and is placed first.
In recent months I am not really be “working” , I am here since August 2009. The truth is that I ‘ve been feeling that I have made a difference by being involved with the Sea Shepherd , so do not consider it a job. For me no matter how long I’m on board or how much time I spend at sea, being here makes me happy.

2) And basically what happened to you? After twenty years, suddenly you had a “click” and decided to do something for the planet? After being on board commercial ships and go to work for Sea Shepherd realities are so different …

Erwin Vermeulen : I separated from my girlfriend last year and this time I felt it was the right time for some changes in my work and my life. The work on commercial ships was basically between a port and another Sea Shepherd as well as being a better working environment , we are always in better places and more attractive terms.

3) This was his first Sea Shepherd campaign in Antarctica. How do you feel after this experience?

Erwin Vermeulen : Paul has been interviewed since he started his expeditions in protection to whales in Antarctica and he recently said that ” Waltzing Matilda ” was undoubtedly the most effective of all campaign ever conducted by Sea Shepherd. The permanent organization was to record the time behind the whale , I would say the Nisshin Maru. The time that they lost no whaling was amazing and of course they lost enough money on it this year. Even heard of a Japanese spokesman that they are no longer interested in hunting whales, but keep the members of Sea Shepherd ” occupied. ” What I want to say that the world is upside down!

4) And what is your position on whaling ? You always worried about the possible extinction of species and this awareness has just come in time working with Sea Shepherd?

Erwin Vermeulen: I personally have always been interested in marine animals , even during my previous work on ships and my travels . I always loved looking at the beauty of nature, such as dolphin watching and surfing on the bow of the ship or to see the breath of a whale ” humpback “, it is virtually impossible not to admire and love all these animals when you see them in their habitat.

5 ) What do you miss the ” outside world ” or civilization , since you spend most of the time shipped ?

Erwin Vermeulen : I ‘m already accustomed to life at sea, but the little things that I like to do when I get “land” is smoking a cigarette, a beer and walk more than two hundred feet up and down.

6 ) What do you think could be improved in the Sea Shepherd to make the next campaign even more effective in Antarctica?

Erwin Vermeulen: Every campaign depends on the speed in which we find the whalers , which involves all electronics that can give us that information. I believe there is much that needs to be improvised or improved for the next campaign , but if we could get another ship as Ady Gil, who can go pretty fast, might make a difference to find the whalers and stop them continue with their actions as soon as possible . The Nisshin Maru is a very big ship , when the Steve Irwin and Bob Barker are very small , so I think if we had a ship larger and faster will be a completely different story for the next campaign .

Matt Kimura
Bosun, Bob BarkerMy name is Matt Kimura and I’m honored to serve as bosun on the Bob Barker.As bosun I’m responsible for the deck, small boats, and the 8-person deck crew.I spent 16 years working on ships and tugboats.  I have extensive small boat open ocean experience. 10 years ago, I became a grammar school teacher.When I told my students how the Japanese whaling fleet intends to come down to Antarctica to slaughter 950 whales, they let out this collective gasp.  I didn’t need to explain about treaties, endangered species, research quotas, or sanctuaries.  The children knew in their heart that killing whales was wrong.  It was at that point that this campaign took on a new meaning for me.I promised my students that I would go down to Antarctica with Sea Shepherd and do everything possible to make sure that they and all children grow up in a world where whales are cherished and protected not hunted down and slaughtered.  I intend to keep that promise.Three days ago we engaged the Nisshin Maru.   As we pulled up behind the factory ship, three harpoon ships and the security ship, the Shonan Maru, surrounded us from behind. They then started circling us like a pack of wolves.  They would pass as close as 50 meters alongside then cut dangerously close across our bow.When the Yushin Maru 3 came up within 40 meters that was close enough. TheYushin Maru 3 then veered right into our side.  I yelled for the deck crew to get down as you could hear metal screeching and our ship heeled over.A quick survey of our vessel revealed a one-meter gash just above the waterline.  The Yushin Maru 3 however went dead in the water and has not been seen since.from:  http://www.seashepherd.org/matilda/keeping-a-promise.html————————————————————————————————————-using the number/letter grid:1      2      3       4       5       6      7      8      9

Teen sailor Laura Dekker says she will leave the Netherlands on Wednesday in her quest to become the youngest to circumnavigate the globe alone. But it won’t yet be the first leg of the 14-year-old’s solo voyage.

Laura said on her blog Saturday she will sail with her father to Portugal, and will begin her round-the-world venture from there later. She said she did not know when that would be.

Laura won a prolonged battle last Tuesday when a court released her from the guardianship of Dutch child protection agencies that had blocked her attempts to leave last year when she was still 13. The authorities said being alone and absent from school for so long would be harmful for her education and psychological development.

On her blog, Laura posted a picture of the schoolbooks she is taking, packed snugly in a wooden rack.

She planned to set out at 9 a.m. (0700GMT) in her 38-foot (11.5-meter) yacht Guppy from the southern Dutch harbor of Den Osse with her father Dick Dekker, who has supported Laura’s ambitions to enter the record book as the world’s youngest round-the-world sailor.

The family court in nearby Middelburg ruled that Laura’s preparations appeared adequate and it was up to her parents to decide whether to let her make the attempt. Her mother, Babs Mueller, who is separated from her father, recently withdrew her opposition.

“It’s great that I can now officially say it will happen on Wednesday,” she wrote.

In an earlier blog posting, Laura wrote that she and her father would sail together to Portugal to make final adjustments and safety checks aboard the red twin-masted ketch.

Laura, who was born on a yacht off the coast of New Zealand, has been whittling away at the objections to her unassisted voyage since the authorities stepped in last year. She got a bigger, sturdier sailboat, took courses in first aid and learned to suture her own wounds, and practiced coping with sleep deprivation. She made at least one solo trip across the North Sea to England.

But her plans and legal wrangles have contributed to a global debate over the wisdom of allowing ever-younger sailors to take on the risks of sailing the high seas alone.

Concerns were heightened in June when American teen Abby Sunderland had to be rescued in the Indian Ocean. A wave snapped the mast off her yacht and left her helpless until she was eventually rescued by a French fishing boat more than 2,000 miles (3,200 kilometers) west of Australia.

Laura is trying to beat the record set last May by Australian Jessica Watson, who was 16 years old when she completed a 210-day voyage on her 34-foot (10-meter) yacht, Ella’s Pink Lady, around the world. Watson says she has just completed a book on her experience.

Watson remained at sea nonstop for her trip around the globe, but Laura plans to stop at several ports along the way where she can meet family and rest.

World’s Youngest Sailor Sets Sail Under the Sea Shepherd Flag

Sea Shepherd Conservation Society Founder and President, Captain Paul Watson, along with Laurens de Groot, had a unique conversation around midnight on August 3, 2010 while driving north on Highway 405 from San Clemente to Los Angeles, California. It was early morning in the small Dutch harbor of Den Ostse in the Netherlands when Captain Watson called Laura Dekker—a 14-year-old sailor from the Netherlands—just as she was setting out with her 38-foot sailing yacht Guppy to begin her quest to be the youngest sailor to circumnavigate the globe solo.

Dekker was born on her parent’s sailing yacht off the coast of New Zealand. She has already crossed the North Sea solo at the age of thirteen. Two months ago, Dekker met with Sea Shepherd Netherlands Director Geert Vons and Laurens de Groot in the Sea Shepherd Amsterdam office. She asked if she could fly the Sea Shepherd flag and promote the efforts of Sea Shepherd during her voyage.

Vons, de Groot, and everyone else within Sea Shepherd Netherlands and Sea Shepherd International were immediately enthusiastic.

“I have always said that people should be willing to live their dreams and to be undeterred from pursuing their objectives,” said Captain Watson. “Laura fought the Dutch authorities in court and won. She was not going to let them tell her she could not follow her dreams. Sea Shepherd has always stood for the power of the individual to make a difference, to challenge the odds, and to boldly go where others have feared to venture.”

Dekker will initially sail to Portugal with her father and begin her solo voyage from there. Her first stop will be in the Canary Islands. She is also expected to stop in the Galapagos Islands, where Sea Shepherd Ecuador will organize a warm welcome for her.

Over 100 well-wishers gathered at the dockside of the southern Dutch harbour of Den Osse to wave goodbye to Dekker and her father. It was only last week, that Dekker won a bitter legal fight to overturn a child protection order that had placed her under the guardianship of social workers to stop her setting sail last year when she was thirteen. She has become a Dutch folk hero after rejecting, with parental support, claims by the child protection authorities that the long sea voyage would be too dangerous and damage her “emotional development.”

The teenager has also shrugged off warnings from NATO commanders about piracy off the Horn of Africa and hoisted the black Jolly Roger flag of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society as she set sail.

“The oceans are in trouble, and the community that is best suited to defend biodiversity and marine habitats are the surfers, the scuba divers, the swimmers, and the sailors.” said Captain Watson. “I believe Laura will be a future leader in ocean conservation and this voyage will present her with the greatest educational experience possible—an intimate and thorough acquaintance with the sea and all her beauty, mystery, and challenges.”

“Bon voyage and behouden vaart, Laura,” added Captain Watson, “from the crew of all Sea Shepherd ships, as well as our directors, staff, volunteers and members.”
