The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society rallied its deep pool of supporters to swim past the competition and win $15,000 in eBay’s Giving Works contest.

The campaign, which ran from May 24th-July 4th, encouraged people to vote for their favorite non-profit — with a shot at winning $500 to be donated on their behalf. The top three most popular charities would each receive $15K, $10K, and $5K respectively.

The Sea Shepherd came in first with almost 7,000 votes, while the Humane Society of the United States hit second with 5,730 and Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund was 3rd with 3,688.

In other SS news, activist Pete Bethune (who was arrested after a boarding a Japanese whaling ship during this year’s Antarctic campaign) awaits sentencing tomorrow in Japan. The former captain of the sunk Ady Gil pleaded guilty in Tokyo District Court last month to charges of illegal boarding, but not guilty to assault. While the prosecution has demanded a two-year prison term, Bethune’s wife is hopeful that he’ll receive a suspended sentence and be able to return home to New Zealand as soon as Saturday.
