Sea Shepherd Provide Classical Soundtrack While Escorting Whalers Out Of Sanctuary

Much to the delight of the Sea Shepherd, the Japanese whaling fleet has left the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.

While the move is something of a mystery, the Japanese appear to be headed towards Africa. Speculation abounds on the Sea Shepherd forum that it’s being done for repairs, refueling, or some kind of elaborate trap involving Somali pirates. The way this campaign has been going, I wouldn’t be surprised by any of those theories — though common sense points to the first two.

Since the MV Bob Barker intercepted the fleet on February 6th, not a single whale has died. “We intend to turn these three whaling free days into three whaling free weeks,” said Captain Paul Watson. “I am confident that once again we will severely cut their kill quotas and we will once again negate their profits.”

Watson estimates that some 350 whales have been harvested since the hunt began in December — well short of the target quota of 935. “I am quite confident that we are going to have a serious impact on their kill profit,” he added.

Check out a video below of the MV Steve Irwin injecting a bit of levity into the campaign by blasting “Ride of the Valkyries” while escorting that Japanese ships out of the whale sanctuary.
