Once Again the DFO Got It Wrong!

Last summer, Sea Shepherd together with Dr. Alexandra Morton launched Operation Virus Hunter with our sailing MARTIN SHEEN along the coast of British Columbia.

Kelly Slater Is Not An Enemy of the Sharks

By Captain Paul Watson

In 2014, Kelly was quoted in the Australian media saying in response to Premier Colin Barnettโ€™s plan to kill sharks in Western Australia:

โ€œI think itโ€™s kind of silly. Humans want to control everything....

Sea Shepherd and I have navigated into the ice into the Gulf of St. Lawrence in 1979, 1981, 1982,1983, 1994,1995,1998, 2005 and 2008. That was nine times between 1979 and 2008. Never did I see the area so free of ice as it is now.

Two decades ago the idea of clear ice free sailing trough the Gulf was simply not possible. It took us days to break...
