“If the ocean dies, we die”

– Captain Paul Watson, Founder of Sea Shepherd

Sea Shepherd

From our inception in 1977, as a small organization with one boat, Sea Shepherd has grown to become a global movement of thousands of passionate and courageous volunteers, in over 40 countries, working on the decks of nine ships – and soon to be more – operating all around the planet. Our message over these last four decades has been consistent and transparent: we expose, intercept and oppose illegal operations that damage and destroy marine wildlife and habitats.

Sea Shepherd has pioneered a unique and effective approach to ocean conservation. Supported by our dedicated crews, we provide ships, equipment, technical advice, and consultation to multiple partners, including local communities and government agencies around the world.

The people of Sea Shepherd are known to be incorruptible, passionate, persistent, professional, cooperative and effective. Together, we defend life and diversity in the oceans. Together, we ensure that existing laws designed to protect the oceans are upheld. Together, we strive to build political will and capacity to ensure that the rest of the world follows our lead.

Our range is vast and our efforts are unrelenting. We have successfully stopped poachers and habitat destruction in Benin, Ecuador, Gabon, Indonesia, Italy, Liberia, Mexico, Namibia, and multiple other countries. We have facilitated hundreds of arrests, the seizure of dozens of poaching vessels and the confiscation of thousands of illegal nets. Our successes are widely heralded.

We have received multiple awards, including the Amazon Peace Prize from Ecuador and the Distinguished Service Medal from Liberia, among others.

We currently have 22 active Sea Shepherd Conservation Society chapters in North America. Completely run by volunteers, our chapters participate in fundraising efforts, local environmental actions, educational visits and general outreach.
