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.
