Infringement Procedure against Denmark

Sea Shepherd asks European Commission to hold Denmark accountable for pilot whale slaughter

Police officers employed by Denmark on board a Faroese boat actively engaged in herding pilot whales for the Grind slaughter.With the formal support of 27 Members of the European Parliament, Sea Shepherd Netherlands has officially submitted a request to the European Commission to launch infringement proceedings against Denmark for facilitating the slaughter of pilot whales and other cetaceans in the Faroe Islands.

Every year from June through November, hundreds of pilot whales are driven onto the beaches of the Faroe Islands using motor boats, then slaughtered in a practice known as the grindadráp, or Grind. Although there is an EU directive prohibiting member states from all forms of deliberate disturbance, capture, or killing of cetaceans, the self-governing Faroe Islands are a dependent territory of Denmark but not an EU member state and are, therefore, exempt from EU laws.

Sea Shepherd Global Statement Regarding Japanese Slaughter of 333 Minke Whales

Photo: Glenn Lockitch/Sea Shepherd GlobalDespite our efforts to once again disrupt the slaughter of whales in the Southern Ocean, the Japanese whaling fleeting has reached their self-allocated quota of killing 333 minke whales.

Today Sea Shepherd mourns the loss of these whales. We have called an emergency meeting of the Global Board of Directors in Amsterdam this weekend to review our whale defense strategy in the Southern Ocean, and will release a more detailed statement on Monday morning.

Sea Shepherd Assists Liberian Coast Guard in Arrest of Cargo Vessel on Suspicion of Identity Fraud and IUU Fishing

Liberian Coast Guard approaching the Reefer M/V Lian Run. Photo: Alejandra Gimeno/Sea Shepherd Global.On March 21st, after receiving intelligence that a refrigerated cargo vessel was suspected of transmitting a fraudulent identity outside the Port of Monrovia, the Liberian Coast Guard assisted by Sea Shepherd crew and Israeli maritime advisors and conservationists boarded the 93-meter Sierra Leone-flagged motor vessel (M/V) Lian Run.

The Automatic Identification System (AIS), a navigational aid which a vessel uses to transmit its identifying information, such as name and radio call sign, was transmitting an IMO number that did not exist in any record. IMO numbers are unique identifiers that remain linked to a vessel throughout its lifetime to improve the safety of life at sea and reduce maritime fraud.

Sea Shepherd Investigation Reveals Huge Volume of Shark Fins Evading International Shipping Bans

A shark fin worker dries shark fins on the street in Hong KongDespite a worldwide ban on the transportation of shark fins by major shipping carriers, a three-month investigation by Sea Shepherd Global -- as part of their global shark defense campaign Operation Apex Harmony -- has verified that large shipments of shark fin are still arriving in Hong Kong on airlines and shipping lines that have made ‘No Shark Fin’ carriage ban commitments.

Sharks are in big trouble around the world, with some populations crashing by more than 90%. Some species, such as the hammerhead shark, are facing a very real threat of extinction.

Nemesis Update: Day 75

by Captain Alex Cornelissen, from Sea Shepherd Global Headquarters in Amsterdam

Heli Ops to Land on OW. Photo: Glenn Lockitch / Sea Shepherd GlobalHeli Ops to Land on OW. Photo: Glenn Lockitch / Sea Shepherd GlobalAfter 75 days at sea our ships are still in the waters around Antarctica chasing the Japanese whaling fleet.

This is the first year that Sea Shepherd has returned to protect the whales from the Japanese poachers since their new and revised “research” program was started in the 2015/2016 season, when they killed 333 minke whales, more than half of them pregnant females. The Japanese government seems unconcerned by the opinion of the rest of the world and despite tough words from the international community, nothing has been done to put a stop to this “research whaling” charade.
