Sea Shepherd fights to defend, conserve and protect our oceans.
We use direct action to defend marine wildlife and protect their habitat in the world’s oceans. Sea Shepherd’s conservation actions aim to safeguard the biodiversity of our delicately-balanced marine ecosystems.
Overfishing, poaching and environmental waste have destroyed marine populations and polluted our seas. International laws and agreements exist to protect our fragile marine ecosystems, but enforcement is lacking.
We do what international authorities can’t … or won’t.
When existing laws to protect the world’s oceans and marine wildlife are not enforced, Sea Shepherd engages in direct action campaigns, patrolling the high seas and working with national authorities to tackle illegal fishing in sovereign waters.
