My Week on the M/V Farley Mowat
by Les Stroud – Survivorman
Joining the Sea Shepherd on a campaign was never anything I took lightly. I realize that they have received some fame, along with some infamy, from the TV show ‘Whale Wars‘. But my instinct told me that the Sea Shepherd team was involved in some very powerful and effective activities meant to put a stop to at least some, if not all, of the atrocities occurring in our oceans today. As a man of action, this appeals to me– I don’t mind sending my dollars to help out. And I don’t mind voting in a direction that I think will make a difference. I enjoy debating the issues in groups of people. However, unless I can get actively involved I never quite feel like I am grasping and as a result, having an understanding of the full story.
