Bob Barker was recently contacted by the Associated Press for some comments on the Sea Shepherd collision; especially in light of his $5 million dollar donation to the organization and newly named boat in his honor. Here are some highlights from the famous Price is Right host:

On the collision:
“To think I had just become involved in it, then they had the worst accident that they’ve had! I thought, ‘Barker, what have you brought on to these people?'”

On if he knew about the Sea Shepherd’s controversial tactics before he contributed:
“I knew that they get in there and try to get between the whalers and the whales. They are just doing wonderful things. Sea Shepherd operates under the UN World Charter for Nature to uphold international conservation laws and directly intervene against illegal activities on the high seas.”

On the projectiles launched by the Sea Shepherd:
“Nontoxic, biodegradable, organic chemical warfare.”

On the disaster’s impact and what it will mean for this future support:
“This will probably get more notice for what they’re trying to do out there than anything in a long time, so it has a bright side. I absolutely continue to support them, more so than ever, in good times and bad.”
