Who We Are
Sea Shepherd's Mission Statement
Sea Shepherd New Zealand is a non-profit conservation organisation whose mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species.
Sea Shepherd New Zealand uses innovative direct-action tactics to investigate, document and take action when necessary to expose and confront illegal activities on the high seas. By safeguarding the biodiversity of our delicately balanced oceanic ecosystems, Sea Shepherd New Zealand works to ensure their survival for future generations.
Since 2018 Sea Shepherd is a registered New Zealand charity.
