Official Mission Statement:
Established in 1977, our mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species. We use innovative direct-action tactics to investigate, document, and take action when necessary to expose and confront illegal activities on the high seas. By safeguarding the biodiversity of our delicately balanced ocean ecosystems, Sea Shepherd works to ensure their survival for future generations.
As a punk band we see it as a kind of duty to depict not only political but also other grievances in our society.
According to current estimations, at least 15% of all world fishing is illegal, this equals to 26 million tons of fish. Despite prohibitions, also endangered marine animals are still ruthlessly hunted and slaughtered. Sea Shepherd actively counteracts this destruction. A courageous, steadfast and tireless organization that doesn’t stand back but takes action and therefore deserves all our support. “When the ocean dies, we die too.”
