On Friday June 4 Whale Wars starts a new season with more ships, more crew members, and countless dramatic moments. For the past several years Captain Paul Watson and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society hit the high seas in an attempt to stop Japanese ships from hunting whales in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary. The 13 episode Whale Wars 3 will continue to document the ongoing battle between both parties, including the January 6th Ady Gil and Shonan Maru 2 collision.
“Ships are expendable, endangered and protected whales are not,” said Watson. “We lost a ship, and we have one crewmember taken prisoner, and no injuries were caused nor sustained. I think we did bloody well this year, and 528 whales were saved. We won’t stop until whaling ends.”
