Board of Advisors
Sea Shepherd’s Board of Advisors
Sea Shepherd advisors are experts in their fields.
The purpose of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s Board of Advisors is to give professional and knowledgeable advice to the organization in individual areas of expertise. Our advisors come from diverse backgrounds and hold varied points of view, not always compatible with each other. We view this as a strength, providing us with a wider spectrum of viewpoints and enabling us to avoid making mistakes in areas of which the Captain and the crew of the ships may not be familiar.
Sea Shepherd Advisory Board members help the organization navigate through the waters they are familiar in. Just as the Captain requires a Pilot to enter an unfamiliar port, our advisors steer us through a sea of facts, statistics, philosophy and tactics in which we may not be knowledgeable.
Sea Shepherd advisors are experts in their fields, ranging from the scientific and technical to the philosophical and tactical. Most importantly, they are people with a wealth of experience in their fields.
All of Sea Shepherd’s advisors are supporters of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, although they may not agree with us on every issue or endorse every tactic and strategy we employ. What is important is that they all share a deep concern for protecting and conserving the diversity of life in our oceans.
Sea Shepherd’s advisors have no legal responsibility for the actions of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.
