Sea Shepherd Is Coming to NYC on April 23rd! Be Part of It!

Yes, the Sea Shepherd ship the Steve Irwin is coming to New York City, from April 23rd to May 3rd. And we need volunteers to help! No experience necessary!

Which exact dock it’s going to arrive at in the city is being confirmed, and we’ll let you know as soon as confirmation happens.

If you can volunteer, please email nyc@seashepherd.org and state what days you can volunteer, how long on each day, and which position you can assist with. There will be a volunteer meeting/ training a few days before the ship arrives.

We’ll also need food donations for crew, for the ship’s upcoming campaign to fight tuna extinction in the Mediterranean.

(More information after the jump)

Here’s the official request for food donations from the Steve Irwin’s head chef, Nicola Paris:

The food must all be VEGAN – which means no animal products or by-products including meat, dairy, eggs, and honey.

If you are not based in Australia, a great way to help feed our crew from afar is to purchase a supermarket voucher online at https://www.wishgiftcard.com.au/home/
and send to our Melbourne office (Kindness House, Suite 7, 288 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy, 3065)

Please contact Nicola Paris if you have any questions (or ideas about sourcing staples or large donations), or to arrange dropping off the food: 0403 641 524 or seashepherdfood@gmail.com.

    I’m very excited about visiting the ship in New York!

    Why are they buying food in Australia to go to the Mediterranean?

    Most of their food donation support comes from Australia since that’s where the ship is docked most of the time between campaigns. So, outside of this brief NYC visit, the ship will still be in Australia after most campaigns. So any rolling food donation support would most sensibly be passed on to an Australian SSCS office.

    “Since 1977, when disaffected members of the ecological preservation group Greenpeace formed the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and attacked commercial fishing operations by cutting drift nets, acts of “eco-terrorism” have occurred around the globe. The FBI defines eco-terrorism as the use or threatened use of violence of a criminal nature against innocent victims or property by an environmentally-oriented, subnational group for environmental-political reasons, or aimed at an audience beyond the target, often of a symbolic nature.”

    The term “ecoterrorism” was created by extreme right wing forces including Wall Street hedge fund operations in their effort to destroy the last native old growth forests of the Pacific Northwest. I find the Tea Party and Sarah Palin to be terrorists. Blowhole and Jake on this forum are terrorists, too.

    It strikes me as funny how they consider themselves “pirates” but aren’t willing to engage in violent acts to further their cause. By allowing TV crews, they limit themselves, and I believe it is only a quest for a TV following to help support their cause intead of furthering it adequately themselves. Pretending to be shot is cool too…
