Did you know that Captain Paul Watson was born in Toronto? Sea Shepherd Toronto is proud of that fact and is also proud to be one of the most successful chapters in North America!

Established in 2010, Sea Shepherd Toronto was the first chapter to open in Canada. We travel far and wide to spread our mission – from our downtown core to the vast Greater Toronto Area, and as far east as Kingston, west as Hamilton, and south to Niagara Falls. Sea Shepherd Toronto has been working hard to share and fulfill Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s mission to defend, conserve, and protect the oceans and their species. We educate, spread awareness, and raise funds through many outreach initiatives such as festivals, film screenings, fundraisers, concerts, cleanups, school presentations, and more. We also enjoy mingling and having fun with our dedicated volunteers and supporters at Disgraceland, our flagship meetup location.

Our onshore volunteers have joined several campaigns, including Operation Jairo, Operation Milagro, Operation Infinite Patience, Operation Henkaku, and Operation Ice Watch. We are a proud, dedicated, passionate, and hardworking crew!

Have a question, comment, or something to share? Please contact us at: toronto@seashepherd.org

NOTE: Due to the abundance of onshore volunteer applications for our Toronto chapter, we will recruit volunteers twice a year. Please reach out to us for more information. Thank you for your interest in being part of our crew!
