  1. We catch the Nisshin Maru

    We catch the Nisshin Maru

    This is the fifth blog post in the series documenting the February to March 2008 leg of the Sea Shepherd anti-whaling Antarctic campaign. Previous posts in the series are here. The following post was an email I sent just over two weeks into the voyage. The next update will come Wednesday, July 16th.

    We just engaged the factory ship just now. As long as we’re on their tail,
    they can’t do any more whaling. They had a group of soldiers on deck and ready for the engagement, but they’re in Australian waters breaking Australian law so what can they do? Shoot a boat full of Australians to prove they rule Australian territory?

    This is the second blog post in the series documenting the February to March 2008 leg of the Sea Shepherd anti-whaling Antarctic campaign. Previous posts in the series are here. The following post was an email I sent on the second day at sea. Due to the holiday, the next whale blog post will be up next Monday, July 7.

    Hello! Greetings from the middle of the ocean after two days at sea. It turns out the Australian government doesn’t like us since we’re pirates, even though we’re protecting their waters by engaging the Japanese whalers, but the individual citizens and cities love us. The Japanese fleet is actually invading the Australian Antarctic Territory to whale (against Australian law), so the Australians have good reason to love us and be pretty pissed off at the whalers. The locals at Melbourne gave us a hero’s sendoff when we left port in Melbourne two nights ago! Continue Reading…

  3. Our ship, the Steve Irwin

    This is the first of many blog posts documenting my time serving on the Sea Shepherd vegan pirate ship, The Steve Irwin, and our mission to stop illegal Japanese whaling there from February and March of 2008. In light of the 2008 IWC Meeting finishing with the usual deadlock, and Sea Shepherd officially announcing its 2008-2009 anti-whaling campaign, Operation Musashi, it seemed a good time to show vegans what’s going on in the world of whaling.

    These posts will document the ship’s journey from Australia to Antarctica for Operation Migaloo (the name of the 2007-2008 Sea Shepherd Antarctic anti-whaling campaign), and describe our sea battles there to stop the illegal Japanese whaling fleet. This will show what few people seem to know is happening to the whales, and what we can all do to stop one of the worst forms of poaching in the world.

    Purpose of this whale blog: Like a lot of other people I know, I wanted to save the whales when I was a kid. But after I grew up, I didn’t realize that they STILL need to be saved, since whaling was illegal and all. And I’m starting to realize a lot of people don’t know that whales are still being hunted as if they’re not endangered. More importantly, it seems a lot of people have no idea that there’s something they can do to directly stop it. But there is.
