September 1, 2022 – Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and Sea Shepherd Global jointly released the following statement just moments ago;
Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and Sea Shepherd Global continue standing shoulder-to-shoulder in defense of marine wildlife around the world.
For decades, the words “Sea Shepherd” have been synonymous with the fight to protect endangered species and protecting the oceans habitats. This work is more important now than ever as the world establishes Marine Protected Areas that must actually be “protected,” and as entire species battle extinction.
Sea Shepherd Global and Sea Shepherd Conservation Society will continue to lead with direct action. With our shared mission and our groundbreaking initiatives, we continue to collaborate on how best to accomplish our mutual goal of saving marine wildlife. From the Gulf of Guinea, where Sea Shepherd Global is partnering with Gabon, Sao Tome’ and Principe to patrol Africa’s largest marine protected area, to Mexico where Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is the last line of defense for the endangered vaquita porpoise, our engagement on the front lines is protecting the oceans’ inhabitants and preserving some of the most fragile ecosystems in the world.
We are a volunteer-driven global movement that is entirely donation funded by people around the world who realize the urgent need to protect our oceans.
The challenges facing marine wildlife grow every day, and all Sea Shepherd entities stand together to meet them.
