Cause of the Week: Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

This week SameSun Nation would like to throw an endorsement out to “Sea Shepherd”, a non-profit organization intent on saving the oceans from poaching, overfishing, illegal fishing, and anything else in between.

You may have seen them in action on Animal Planet’s popular TV series “Whale Wars”. Their major campaigns include stopping the illegal Japanese whale hunt in the Antarctic whale sanctuary every year (for “scientific research” – ya right), blue fin Tuna poaching, and the obliteration of the shark species for their fins.

Sea Shepherd’s Mission Statement:

Established in 1977, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS) is an international non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organization. Our mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species. Sea Shepherd uses innovative direct-action tactics to investigate, document, and take action when necessary to expose and confront illegal activities on the high seas. By safeguarding the biodiversity of our delicately-balanced ocean ecosystems, Sea Shepherd works to ensure their survival for future generations.

We encourage you to check them out at …every little bit of cash donation and exposure helps, so if nothing else please do give them a plug on your Facebook.
