In a timely show of support, Hollywood star and anti-whaling activist Isabel Lucas has recorded a new ad for the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society encouraging people to donate to the group. The ad is scheduled to air on Australian television networks tonight.

Sea Shepherd’s Australian director Jeff Hansen told The Daily Telegraph that the ad was filmed in Melbourne last winter but needed a high-profile supporter to do a voice-over and appear at the end. “Isabel was out here late last year and appeared on Rove and said she would love to support us,” he said.

Hansen added that the ad had not cost the group “a cent” – because Lucas and its creators had given their time for free.

The 24-year-old actress is currently with Jessica Biel, Emile Hirsch, and other celebrities on a climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise awareness of the worldwide water crisis.


Ady Gil, the benefactor that helped the Sea Shepherd purchase the stealth boat, has reportedly pledged $1 million of his own money to help rebuild a new one. Before the offer was made, Sea Shepherd’s Peter Hammarstedt said the stealth boat was “simply too effective at shutting down [Japan’s] operations, so we’ll certainly exploring the possibility of maybe building a second Ady Gil, and we may see the reincarnation of that ship in the future.”

In another show of support, the Australian political party, the “Australian Greens” have sent the Japanese Ambassador a bill for $2 million to have the Ady Gil replaced. “The bill should be coming from the Australian and New Zealand governments. However, the Rudd government has left it to the Japanese Government to make all the demands so far. Here is a demand in return,” Senator Brown said.
