While “Whale Wars” has certainly brought the Sea Shepherd some measure of fame, having a Hollywood star onboard for the first leg of their latest campaign has widened the spotlight.

Last week, we reported that “Avatar” actress Michelle Rodriguez was joining the SS on training exercises en route to Hobart, Australia. The 32-year-old had originally intended to stay with the conservation org through the entirety of Operation No Compromise, but modified her plans in lieu of filming conflicts. Nevertheless, she’s been donating her time learning the ropes of daily life on the MY Steve Irwin. According to News.com.au, though she departs the group this week, she’s planning on staying for all of the 2011 campaign.

“I will dedicate a lot of my sweat and my time and devote a big percentage of it to this, to the preservation of life because I can’t sit back and not do anything knowing how wrong it is, not to care about tomorrow,” she told the paper via satellite phone.
