Operation Zero Tolerance
In our ninth season in Antarctica, Sea Shepherd is embarking upon its biggest campaign yet to defend at-risk whales!
We’re returning stronger than ever to the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary with a fleet of four ships, one helicopter and more than 100 international crewmembers — the whales’ Navy!
What To Do
During the past eight seasons, Sea Shepherd’s direct-action interventions have saved the lives of more than 3,600 whales and exposed illegal Japanese whaling to the world.
This year, our campaign is aptly dubbed Operation Zero Tolerance because we aim to send the whalers home without them killing a single whale.
We have a great track record of success to build upon. The last two seasons, we sent the whalers home early with just a fraction of their kill quota.
Japanese whaling is a dying industry — continuing only due to government pride and massive subsidies.
Hundreds of millions in debt, the industry cannot continue to sustain such huge financial losses.
With your help, we will meet our goal of sinking the Japanese whaling fleet economically to finally bring peace to the whales of the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.
Zero tolerance. Zero cruelty. Zero kills.
