While Sea Shepherd Australia continues to lead efforts down under to stymie the Japanese whaling fleet, the group has released a small teaser of what we can expect for “Whale Wars” season six.
Unlike previous campaigns, the anti-whaling org is completely in charge of documenting all of the action that happens this year in the Southern Ocean.
“Animal Planet will not have its own film crew on board with us this year,” wrote Sr. Media Relations Manager Lisa Agabian in an email to us last year. ”‘Whale Wars’ will, indeed, air in the U.S. on Animal Planet as expected, but our own professional production crew will be shooting the campaign this year. This arrangement provides us greater flexibility for distribution purposes, as we will own the footage.”
Season six is expected to air on Animal Planet sometime this summer. Check out the teaser below.
