Raising $1.4 million is a tough feat for any organization, but for one as controversial as Sea Shepherd it’s even tougher.

Regardless, that’s what Paul Watson‘s group is aiming to do. Their flagship, the Steve Irwin, is being held by UK courts due to a lawsuit brought against Sea Shepherd by Fish & Fish Ltd. The bond for the release of the ship is currently set at $1,411,692.87, which seems an awfully specific number…maybe that’s once they subtracted whatever was in their wallets.

In a statement on seashepherd.org, Watson put out a plea to followers to pitch in and help: “We need to raise USD$1,411,692.87 by next week,” said Watson. “Gifts are coming in, but there’s a long way to go. Your gift is essential to save endangered whales.”

I’m not sure where they are, but raising $1.4 million in a week seems a little unrealistic. Still, Sea Shepherd remains optimistic and is getting support from a few big names. Vegetarian and animal lover Alyssa Milano is one of them, as she tweeted, “Emergency SOS! Save The Sea Shepherd Ship! The Steve Irwin needs your help!” with a link to the donation page.

    Watson desperately needs donations from millionaire actress’ so he can illegally destroy hard working fishermens gear and release their legal catch so their families can starve.

    These fishermen were fishing legally and yet Watson who needed the ratings and donations destroyed their gear anyway. He endangered the lives of his naive crew and the lives of the fishermen. This man belongs in prison and the elitists who donate to him need to realize he is nothing more than a low life terrorist!
