Next month, Captain Paul Watson and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society return for a dramatic third season of Whale Wars. Season three will follow Watson and his group of international staff and volunteers as they work to eradicate whaling during a three month trek across icy Antarctic waters.
When filming began, Marjorie Kaplan, president and general manager of Animal Planet, released the following statement, “The issues surrounding whaling in the southern ocean are important and complex. The majesty of these beautiful creatures and the lengths to which the Sea Shepherds will go in order to prevent whaling has made WHALE WARS intense and vital television.”
“We are excited to be on the Sea Shepherd boats again this season for what looks likely to be an even more dramatic campaign than in years past. And, as in prior seasons, we wish we could capture the experience on the Japanese boats as well but our request for access continues to be declined.”
Season three of Whale Wars will debut on Friday, June 4 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Click here to check out our gallery of promo pics.
