The Milagro Collection
Sea Shepherd has been on a mission to protect the wildlife, including the critically endangered vaquita porpoise, in the Upper Gulf of California since the first Operation Milagro Campaign in 2015. Since then, enough illegal netting, if stretched out side-by-side, has been pulled from the Gulf’s Sea of Cortez to reach space! Sea Shepherd and our friends at Planet Love Life have turned some of these nets retrieved during Operation Milagro IV into beautiful, handcrafted bracelets. All nets in the Milagro collection were pulled from the Sea of Cortez in the Upper Gulf of California by Sea Shepherd crewmembers.
Jolly Roger T-Shirt
Sea Shepherd’s Jolly Roger is famous worldwide, but did you know the meaning behind its design?
The Jolly Roger logo depicts a crossed shepherd’s staff and Neptune’s trident. Set into the skull is the yin yang symbol using a sperm whale and a dolphin. The shepherd’s crook signifies that we are shepherds of the sea and the trident signifies that we fight for life in the sea. The skull represents the enemy of the sea (i.e. mankind) and the yin and yang with the dolphin and the whales means we must learn from the whales and dolphins how to live in harmony with the sea.
– Captain Paul Watson
We are in the midst of a global plastic epidemic. By 2050 there will be more plastic in the oceans than there are fish (by weight)! These reusable bamboo utensils help to reduce single-use plastic consumption by providing a sustainable alternative to disposable cutlery for meals on the go.
Dog Collars + Leashes
Dog leashes and collars made of post-consumer recycled materials for our four-legged supporters! Head over to our “Packs” section to purchase both together and receive 10% off.
Paul Watson Tote
Designed by our friends at “Under the Skin of Endangered Animals”, this limited edition tote bag incorporates one of Paul Watson’s most famous cautionary assertions; “If the oceans die, we die.”
The artists, brothers Ed and James Harrison, are conservationists, outdoor-enthusiasts and generous Sea Shepherd supporters. Their work celebrates the natural world and raises awareness of some of the world’s most vulnerable animals.
Sea Shepherd’s fleet, known as Neptune’s Navy, includes 15 ships worldwide. Our ship hat collection includes the M/V Farley Mowat, the M/V John Paul DeJoria, the M/V Sharpie and the R/V Martin Sheen. Each has participated in multiple campaigns patrolling the seas protecting the most vulnerable marine wildlife.

Ever thought about what hair ties are made of? Usually, it’s plastic! And think about how many are lost every year. It’s another product we don’t think much about, but it still ends up in our natural environment. Kooshoo created the first 100% organic cotton hair tie and collaborated with Sea Shepherd to create a special color combination. It’s a perfect small gift or stocking stuffer!
Winter is just around the corner and what better way to get cozy than with a Sea Shepherd organic cotton sweatshirt? Represent Sea Shepherd in either the Jolly Roger Hoodie or the Classic Logo Hoodie. Both are Sea Shepherd gear staples!
