Sea Shepherd E-News November 12, 2005 4:16 AM

October 31, 2005 Dear Friend of Sea Shepherd, This past weekend, the Sea Shepherd flagship Farley Mowat left Pitcairn Island on our journey to the Southern Ocean Sanctuary. We are approximately 13 days from Wellington, New Zealand, with 21 crew on board and six sacks of Pitcairn Island mail bound for New Zealand. I will be reporting intermittently from onboard the Farley Mowat as we sail the seas during the two-month long Antarctic Whale Defense Campaign 2005-6 on our mission to locate and intercept the Japanese whalers who intend to target and kill endangered whales in the Southern Ocean Sanctuary of Antarctica. You can access the updates on our Whale Defense Campaign 2005 Blog. Also during this campaign, Sea Shepherd is offering a unique opportunity to our supporters. We will be leaving a time capsule in a dry desert location in Antarctica. Inside this capsule will be messages from people around the world, just like you, who support our efforts to protect and defend the great whales. You can learn about the specific opportunities available to send a message on the Message to the Future brochure. All donations to the Message to the Future campaign will go directly to support our Whale Defense Campaign. The Seal of Approval Campaign ended on October 15th. We had over 50 volunteers approaching businesses around the world asking them to join the Canadian Seafood Boycott. The winner of a trip to visit the seals with Sea Shepherd in February of 2006 is Lorainne Izzo of Bronxville, NY. Congratulations to her and thanks to all those volunteers working so diligently for the seals. We continue to encourage you to enlist businesses to join the Canadian Seafood Boycott. Your efforts are greatly appreciated and we will continue to promote the Canadian Seafood Boycott until the seal slaughter is permanently ended. This Thursday, November 3rd, is holding a Benefit Concert for Canadian Baby Harp Seals at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, CA. This will be a fun night of music and education to help raise funds to oppose the annual Canadian seal slaughter for and Sea Shepherd. For more information, you can view the Benefit Concert Brochure. Your support and efforts have been, and will continue to be, crucial to our successes in addressing each and every issue. We are strong as your support and I thank you for the vital role you play in protecting the oceans with us.

 December 09, 2005 3:26 PM Sea Shepherd News News Releases 12/06/2005 Whale Killers and Whale Defenders on a Collision Course Nine ships are now heading towards the remote coast of Antarctica. Six of these ships are intent upon a deadly mission to slaughter hundreds of protected Antarctic piked whales and 10 endangered fin whales. Three ships are on a mission to prevent the cruel and illegal whale kill. The six ships of the Japanese whaling fleet departed from Japan on November 8 and are now reaching the waters near Antarctica. Two ships from the Greenpeace Foundation departed from Cape Town, South Africa, on November 20 (the Greenpeace ships Esperanza and the Arctic Sunrise are heading eastward along the coast of Antarctica). The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society flagship Farley Mowat departs from Melbourne, Australia, on December 9 to head westward towards the Greenpeace ships. The Japanese fleet is expected to be operating in the area between the two Greenpeace ships and Sea Shepherd’s ship. With the Japanese fleet sandwiched between the Greenpeace and Sea Shepherd ships, the killing fleet should be found sometime in December. Both the Greenpeace ships and the Sea Shepherd ship are equipped with helicopters. “It makes sense for us to work in cooperation with Greenpeace,” said Captain Paul Watson onboard the Sea Shepherd ship Farley Mowat. “We have the same objective in common and that is to stop the illegal killing of whales by the Japanese ships.” Captain Paul Watson, founder and president of the international Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, was also one of the original co-founders of the Greenpeace Foundation in 1972. “We have had our differences in the past,” said Captain Watson. “But strength lies in diversity and this diversity is needed to stop the Japanese whalers. We have a common foe and that enemy is the ruthless crews of the Japanese vessels engaged in the illegal slaughter of the whales. Greenpeace can depend on our cooperation and assistance with this mission.” Sea Shepherd Conservation Society welcomes your support.
