|The Steve Irwin falgship will be defending whales again this year|
This is the eleventh time Sea Shepherd has been down to the southern waters to protect the whales in their breeding ground.
There is also a Japanese fleet of ships going down to kill over $300 wales there in the southern waters. The international criminal court told Japan, last year I think, that their whaling operations were illegal. So what did they do? Invented another "scientific program", allegedly to study whales. Weird how every whale they "study" ends up dead.
So now, yet again for another year, the only thing standing in the way of the harpoons is Sea Sheppard and this seasons operation to save whale lives.
