Correspondence from Antarctica: Valentine’s Day on the Sea Shepherd Campaign in Antarctica

An update on the current Antarctic campaign, from Sea Shepherd crew member Andrea Gordon.

This message was transmitted to New York from the Bob Barker vessel via satellite.


We had a spectacular Valentine’s Day down here in the Southern Ocean. The whales got love of love and the whalers got a new paint job, butyric acid!

This morning, the Steve Irwin sent their Delta boat after the Nisshin Maru. Using a potato launcher and some very good driving, they dodged the NM’s water cannons and shot butyric acid right onto the slipway and flensing deck of the death ship. We could smell the stench all the way on the Bob Barker!

I went out in the small boat this afternoon/evening for an extended supply run. We needed some important supplies from the Steve Irwin, so we used the small boat. Fortunately, the whalers didn’t get in the way or try to block the recovery of the small boat. The only ship with the Nisshin Maru right now is the Shonan Maru #2, and they stayed a few miles away all day. The water was a crystal clear so dark blue it was almost purple.

Then, after five hours in the small boat, we came back to a super yummy vegan spaghetti bolognese dinner, with ultra delicious chocolately brownies. The Steve Irwin even gave us some fresh fruit! Quite a treat now that we’ve been out at sea for two months. There’s nothing that beats saving whales all day and then coming back to a delicious vegan dinner!

    Why are we only attacking on Japanese whaling boats? Norway catches as same volume as Japan does. Greenland, Canada, and Iceland still hunts today, but yet we only attack Japan. Sea Shepherd sounds like nothing more than racist activist to me.

    Put your money where your mouth is hugo and donate to sea shepherd so they have enough of a navy to go after Norway and Iceland at the same time.
    Time to donate or volunteer as crew Hugo – in other words get involved and man-up instead of whinging.

    Happy Valentine’s Day and may the Steve Irwin’s merry crew of eco-moron terrorists end up eaten by whales real soon. Or sharks. I’m good with sharks, too.

    Whales and sharks aren’t vegans.

    I am thrilled that Sea Shepherd is chasing these criminals.
    More Butyric acid on these whalers please!
