On Sunday the 17th September the Department of Conservation found a dead endangered male New Zealand Sea Lion (Rāpoka/ Whakahao). It had been shot on Tautuku Beach in the Catlins (Otago/ Southland) and was otherwise in healthy condition.

In April of this year another male was found dead at Jacks Bay.

“This is the second Sea Lion to be shot this year in the Catlins. It appears we could have a serial wildlife killer in the region” says Grant Meikle, Sea Shepherd NZ Director and Campaign Leader for Operation Pahu (www.operationpahu.nz).

Sea Shepherd launches Operation Pahu

Operation PahuOperation Pahu is Sea Shepherd’s first campaign in New Zealand and makes a stand for NZ’s endemic dolphin in the South Island.

“Hector’s dolphin or Pahu have declined by over 80% in the last 50 years and many of the small sub populations are as isolated and vulnerable as the North Island Hector’s (Maui)” says Michael Lawry Sea Shepherd New Zealand Managing Director.

Operation Pahu is a long term determined effort to reduce the risk to Hector’s from illegal, unregulated, and unreported (IUU) commercial and recreational fishing with the first phase focus on Te Waewae Bay up to the Canterbury Bight.

Sea Shepherd calls for an end to fish farm expansion in Tasmania

Deformed Salmon from fish farms in Canada from Operation Virus Hunter“Fish farms are wreaking havoc on the Tasmanian marine environment. From the slaughter of seals, the pollution of public waterways to the impact on whale migration routes, this out of control industry needs to be held accountable for the damage its creating,” said Adam Burling spokesperson for Sea Shepherd Australia.

“Many of the fish in fish farms are sick and in a very poor state, being kept alive with a cocktail of chemicals and even fed dyes to make their flesh pink. From an impact on the environment or on us, there is nothing healthy about eating and supporting this destructive industry.

Sea Shepherd calls on Broome to end its relationship with the bloody business of dolphin killing

 

As Taiji dolphin killers look to sister up with the Faroese whale murderers 

Sea Shepherd calls on Broome end relationship with TaijiThe western Japanese town of Taiji, known for its whale and dolphin hunts, said Wednesday it is establishing a sister city relationship with a town in the Faroe Islands known for their bloody pilot whale slaughter, known also as the Grind.

Taiji and Klaksvik on the Faroe Islands in the North Atlantic are the only communities in the world which practice controversial drive hunting of cetaceans and their operations have been obstructed by Sea Shepherd in the past.

Jeedara the film premiers in the USA - Hollywood, while film festival awards continue to roll in

US Audiences rally against USA Oil Giant Chevron for the Great Australian Bight

Paul Brown, Cliff Simon, and Jeff HansenWhile over in LA for Sea Shepherd’s 40 year anniversary event with Captain Paul Watson, I thought I might as well host (along with Captain Wyanda Lublink) a screening of our Great Australian Bight defence documentary titled Jeedara.

The film was well received in Hollywood by the US audiences with reactions on par with Australians, deeply blown away by the beauty and grandness of the Great Australian Bight, while deeply concerned for what BP was proposing, and what now USA oil giant Chevron and Norwegian based Statoil is pushing ahead with.

With their concerns comes a resolve and determination to rally agains Chevron.

A win for the locals in Western Port, Phillip Island - What a fight! What journey! What an outcome!

humpback whale off Phillip IslandIt is sobering to think that 4 years ago the Liberal Government was spending $110 million on preparation and testing for the establishment of a massive container port in beautiful Westernport in Victoria. The jack up barges were out on the water; the seismic testing was being completed and the locals were being spruiked of the “benefits” of this giant port.

Preserve Westernport Action Group, based on Phillip Island and surrounds.  And similar groups around the Bay were having none of it.  The proposed port in Hastings was to be a 5km long concrete monster.  It required 24 million cubic metres of sea bed dredging.

This is a fragile, delicately balanced marine environment.  Not an industrial shipping hub!

Our group lobbied, rallied, held stalls, workshops. We made noise when few others were prepared to join in.
