Sea Shepherd Frees Steve Irwin, En Route To Faroe Islands

The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society came within minutes Tuesday of losing their flagship vessel, the MY Steve Irwin, but scored a last minute reduction in bond to free her.

The ship has been held in the Shetland Islands for the past two weeks after a claim filed by a Maltese company over an incident in 2010 led to a Scottish court holding her as bond. The original cost to free the Irwin was set at nearly $1.4M, an estimate based on damages reported by the plaintiffs. A fury of last minute work by the SSCS however, convinced a judge to lower the bond to the actua value of the vessel – or around $850K.

“I am quite confident we will get our bond back,” Captain Paul Watson told the BBC. “It is just one of those inconveniences. We have learned how to deal with inconveniences over the years and just weather them.”

The Steve Irwin will reportedly depart for the Faroe Islands within the next 24-hours to participate in the organization’s Operation Ferocious Isles campaign to defend pilot whales.
