Do I have an episode for you to sink your teeth into! My guest is both loved and feared by many all over the world for his 40 plus years of marine animal and ocean conservation activism.
Captain Paul Watson, esteemed Founder and President of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society has starred in seven seasons of Animal Planet’s television series Whale Wars, and he has received many awards and commendations over the years for his conservation and animal rights activism - including from the Dalai Lama.
Sea Shepherd, which Captain Paul founded in 1977, does so much in service of our seas, such as removing killer nets, conducting vital marine research, cleaning beaches, patrolling waters, as well as taking aggressive nonviolent action against anyone threatening the fragile balance of our ocean’s ecosystems.
Hundreds of thousands of marine animals – some of them already endangered – are targeted and trapped by poachers each year. The sustainability of the planet is at risk, too. With so much at stake, Sea Shepherd is unrelenting in protecting the seas and stopping those who destroy habitats and marine life.
