I will post more info about Captain Paul Watson, and the late Robert Hunter and the website address of the Sea Shepherds (not even sure if I am spelling it right). I have their info at home. I want to also provide a link to access the 1970 footage where it shows these two brave warriors literally standing in front of the huge sealing ship, and in front of the harpoon targetted to kill an endangered whale. Truly inspiring, dramatic footage that will give you goose bumps and move and inspire you.
The sad thing is that I had never even heard of Paul Watson or Robert Hunter until only recently
. Of course I had heard about Greenpeace though, but note that the current Greenpeace only got a "B-" grade from PETA (the animal protecion organization that in my opinion is the most reliable and CONSISTENT
) in its stance on helping animals).
Has anybody else NOT heard of these two warriors? Please let me know - it will give me an idea as to how well-known this organization and their work is and what they might to do reach more people.
By the way, please make sure that any environmental or "animal protecion" group is truly worth your support. For example, World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is in part responsible and supports cruel and crude chemical tests on animals. Watching their weekend informercials to raise money, seeing all the animals they help on tv, you would have never guessed that. SO PLEASE educate yourself of the WHOLE story with respect to seemingly great environmental groups before you decide that you want to support their work. A good place to start is www.meangreenies.com
. Here you will find report cards on some of the top ecological and enviro-groups, and you might just be shocked at what you learn. I know I was. I just called to cancel my monthly donation to WWF and told them I would gladly
resume when they became more animal friendly and I also told them that I did not appreciate their rather misleading tv informercials!!!!
That website again is meangreenies.com. Will get back to you with some awesome sea shepherd footage of some magnificent animals and the direct action taken to save them. Wow!!!
