Wednesday, Mar 25, 2020

Looking for something to watch at home? We've got you covered with seven documentaries about Sea Shepherd's ocean conservation campaigns.

Defending Turtles in Cabo Verde (12 mins) - Every year, tons of discarded fishing gear wash up on the beaches of Cabo Verde, a remote island nation in the central Atlantic Ocean, where thousands of loggerhead sea turtles come to lay their eggs. Sea Shepherd and local conservation organisation Biosfera have teamed up to remove this deadly fishing gear from the beaches and stop it from choking the mother and baby turtles before they safely reach the waters. Watch this inspiring video about our campaign to protect the turtles of Cabo Verde. 

Sea Life Savers (49 minutes) - A documentary about Sea Shepherd's Operation Albacore on board the M/V Bob Barker, working in partnership with the Gabonese military and government agencies to stop illegal fishing off the coast of West Africa (49mins). Watch on Youtube, or download and watch here.

Untrashing Djulpan (25 mins) - This powerful documentary tells the story of the collaborative marine debris campaign between our passionate crew and Indigenous Rangers from Northeast Arnhem Land, NT. Watch on Facebook.

Plunderers of the Sea (24 minutes) - This Arté investigative news documentary shows the effects of illegal fishing in West Africa (Senegal and Liberia). Filmed on the M/Y Sam Simon, the second half of the documentary features Sea Shepherd's Operation Sola Stella in Liberia as an example of how partnerships between governments and marine conservationists can successfully fight this problem. It originally aired in French and German, and is now available streaming online with a choice of English, Italian, Polish or Spanish subtitles.

Part-Time Heroes (13 minutes) - This short documentary shows the dedication and hard work of Sea Shepherd's diverse crew of volunteers from around the world. It shares, in their own words, why they literally put their lives on the line to enforce international conservation law against the illegal fishing industry. Watch on YouTube. 

Jeedara (46 mins) - Celebrate the victory of oil-giant Equinor recently becoming the fourth fossil fuel company to withdraw their plans for the Great Australian Bight by watching Jeedara. This film tells the story of our campaign that saw the M/V Steve Irwin sail into the heart of the Great Australian Bight in 2016 to document the beauty of the region. Watch on Youtube

The Shark Cull (48 mins) - The Shark Cull explores the Western Australian shark cull, exposing the brutal cruelty of the controversial program that took place between January and April 2014. This explosive documentary is a must see for anyone interested in the protection of sharks and marine conservation.

Watch it live with Sea Shepherd on our Facebook Watch Party screening Thursday March 26th at 6pm CET. If you can't join us live, then watch it anytime on YouTube.
