Costa Rica – Paul Watson Waiting on Germany’s Extradition Decision

Paul Watson, founder of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

TCRN] – Paul Watson, founder of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, originally arrested at Frankfurt airport involving Costa Rican shark fin poachers in Guatemalan waters, is hoping Germany, which has no extradition treaty with Costa Rica, will refuse the extradition request by the Costa Rica Foreign Ministry.

If Germany decides not to proceed with the extradition of Watson, Foreign Ministry says he does not perform any procedure to insist, as they do not belong.
Watson says he is concerned about getting a fair trial in Costa Rica.

In the mean time Watson’s support has been growing, recently Actress Pamela Anderson came out today in Watson’s defense.

Sea Shepherd prepared to protect marine parks from poaching, over-fishing

THE radical environmental group Sea Shepherd Conservation Society has offered to police the federal government's proposed Coral Sea Marine Park against poachers using its team of shark-fin sniffer dogs _ free of charge.

Sea Shepherd, best known for its pursuit of Japanese whalers in the Southern Ocean, said it would provide expertise, vessels and resources to guard the new marine park.

Fishing groups say the federal government's proposed marine reserves would be under-policed and vulnerable to poachers.

Sea Shepherd said enforcement would be key to the success of the marine parks. Without it, foreign fishing vessels would continue to exploit the region's fragile ecosystems through poaching, over-fishing, shark-finning and other illegal activities.

Founder Paul Watson said: "Sea Shepherd is prepared to work with any government or local agency to protect their waters. We stand ready to put our enforcement expertise to work for Australia's Coral Sea."

Sea Shepherd's Galapagos Islands mission included a team of fin-sniffing patrol dogs to counter illegal shark fishing.

FRANKFURT, Germany — The Canadian founder of an anti-whaling group who is being held in Germany will have to wait a few more days to find out if he’ll be extradited to Costa Rica.

The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society says a judge is expected to decide Friday whether to formally detain or release Paul Watson.

Spokesman Peter Hammarstedt says the decision was supposed to come today but there was no word by the end of business hours, and Thursday is a holiday in Germany.

Saving Right Whales? There's an App for That Rightwhale

It isn't easy being a right whale, and hasn't been for several centuries. They are so named because they were the 'right' whales to hunt: they swim slowly and close to shore, obligingly float at the surface when harpooned, and contain large amounts of oil. Consequently, they were relentlessly targeted by commercial whalers, as a result of which (unsurprisingly) their numbers plunged. Although populations are rebounding in the Southern Hemisphere, they remain perilously low in both the North Pacific and North Atlantic (although here, too, there may be some slow recovery).

Fishermen Propose New Protection for Dolphins

http://www.dolphin-study.com/dolphin_on_front_pag.jpg

NEW ZEALAND - Taranaki Fishermen and fish processing companies who expect to be put out of business by the proposal to extend the set net exclusion zone around Cape Egmont to Hawera have brought forward an innovative approach involving collaborative management of the zone.

This alternative approach is contained in a submission by the fishing industry to the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. Keith Mawson a spokesman for local fishers and processing companies says that the proposed exclusion zone is a blunt instrument and he believes much better approaches are available.

Help Save World’s Most Endangered Dolphins

One of the smallest, and rarest, marine mammals in the world, Hector’s dolphins are found only in the shallow coastal waters off of New Zealand.

There are now fewer than 8,000 of the two subspecies of these dolphins, which are genetically distinct from each other: the South Island Hector’s dolphins, who can be found off of New Zealand’s South Island and the Maui’s dolphin, who can be found off the west coast of the North Island where there are fewer than 100 left in existence.

Anti-dolphin hunt man cleared in Japan

A Japanese court has ruled that a Dutch supporter of militant environmentalist group Sea Shepherd was not guilty of assaulting a man in the dolphin-hunting town of Taiji.

Erwin Vermeulen, 42, was indicted for allegedly punching the man in December when he was stopped from entering an off-limits area near a secluded bay where large dolphin hunts take place.

Sea Shepherd's flagship Steve Irwin is headed for Melbourne, ending its season chasing the Japanese whaling fleet with a claim that it led two of the ships across the Southern Ocean on a ruse.

The anti-whaling activists said they succeeded in drawing the pursuit ships far from the rest of the fleet, in the belief that the Steve Irwin would be refuelled at a sub-Antarctic island by sister ship Bob Barker.
