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

think differently
7 June 2009 | by archaeonSee all my reviews

most of the crew may be inexperienced at sea, but who cares? at least they are doing something against whaling. in a world full of cowards who just calm their conscience by donating a few bucks to some more or less effective organisation it's good to know that there are other people who really take action. just having an opinion like "i oppose whaling" doesn't help these animals. and politics, as we can see, can mostly be interpreted in favour of the exploiting whaling industry.

their methods may look like a prank to one or another but they are way more effective than circling the whalers with a zodiac and just waving banners. think about that.
