Join the Fight to Defend, Conserve and Protect the Oceans by Donating to Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

Together we can defend, conserve and protect marine wildlife worldwide. Thanks to your donation Sea Shepherd Conservation Society can use satellite connections to track poachers, purchase audio-visual equipment to monitor illegal activities, cook vegan food for their crew, maintain their engine room, supply charts for their bridge team and fuel their vessels and small boats. Since 1977, Sea Shepherd has used innovative direct action tactics to defend, conserve and protect the delicately-balanced biodiversity of our seas and enforce international conservation laws. Their mission is to protect defenseless marine wildlife and end the destruction of habitat in the world’s oceans. Despite their relatively small size and limited resources, Sea Shepherd’s campaigns have been effective because they use direct action to achieve results, instead of billboards, petitions or protest marches. Their ships, mainly crewed by passionate volunteers, have saved over 6000 whales in the dangerous Antarctic waters.
