We are about to embark on the most dangerous and important voyage in our history - to put an end to whaling in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.
As we struggle to put three vessels to sea with a modest budget, the illegal Japanese whalers are spending an additional AU$27 million on security to stop us.
What is the cost of defending a whale's life? As we risk our lives, will you risk a financial investment? Please help Sea Shepherd defend the whales of the Antarctic waters and donate today to support our vital mission.
8th expedition to oppose the illegal activities of the Japanese whaling fleet in the Southern Ocean
During the past seven campaigns, we have saved the lives of over 2,781 whales and exposed illegal Japanese whaling activities to the entire world. Last season, we were able to save more whales than the Japanese whalers were able to kill. Eight hundred and sixty-three (863) whales are alive and swimming in the sea because you enabled us to intervene by supporting our ships and crews.
We are preparing to send three ships with 88 crewmembers and we hope it will be our last season because we put an end to this annual atrocity. Please be part of this monumental effort to protect these precious, sentient whales – we need you!
