PORTSMOUTH, Dominica – June 2, 2021 – Sea Shepherd is pleased to announce that one of our vessels, John Paul DeJoria, has arrived in the harbor of Portsmouth, Dominica. The ship and its crew will quarantine for seven days prior to reconnecting with the people of this island nation.
Dominica is known as the Nature Isle of the Caribbean. Its lush tropical shores and surrounding waters are home to an abundance of wildlife. Sea Shepherd looks forward to meeting with the government of Dominica to discuss further opportunities to work together toward our common conservation aims.
Sea Shepherd has a long history of working with the people and government of Dominica. In September 2017, Sea Shepherd arrived on the shores of Dominica just days after Hurricanes Irma and Maria, bringing much-needed supplies and support to the survivors of two of the most powerful storms in the island nation’s history. Sea Shepherd returned to Dominica to provide additional aid and resources in January 2018.
