Storyline

This stunning and dangerous limited series spotlights both the controversial Japanese whaling trade and the tactics that the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and its staff and volunteers use to cripple it. Aboard the Motor Yacht "Steve Irwin" the group seeks out the Japanese whaling fleet and then uses it's Delta Zodiac, helicopter, and other innovative techniques to enforce the law, including close-quarters ship-to-ship contact, to disable and/or sink the Japanese whaling ships in the fight to enforce international laws on the high seas where law enforcement is minimal or non-existent. The successful confrontations disrupt whale carcass processing and disperse the fleet of whaling vessels. Written by Robert G. Case

too much about humans, too little about whales
8 January 2012 | by (Madison, WI) – See all my reviews

Whale Wars is an OK introduction to the Sea Shepard conversation organization, but follows PC sensationalism in exclusively keying in on human stories, and therefore misses on the real story that Sea Shepard is about: the whales!! There is essentially nothing about what whales are about, how humans have terrorized and murdered these creatures for centuries, how terribly whales die by harpoons and other torture devices utilized by modern whaling ships, how little we know about whales' consciousness and social behavior, how much we do know about them. Without any providing emphasis about the most justifiable reasons for not murdering whales, the series misses out on the main points that should be made in support of Sea Shepard. Even so, this series provide a good introduction to the organization, and should help with awareness and fund raising. Paul Watson obviously approves, but one has to suppose for pragmatic reasons.
