Sea Shepherd is an international organisation known for its conservation efforts of marine wildlife. In the Southern Hemisphere, Sea Shepherd Australia is mainly focused on using helicopter surveillance and water cannons to deter Japanese fleets from killing thousands of whales in the Antarctic. The ship was originally used by the Scottish Fisheries Protection Agency; it is now named after Steve Irwin, since he was contemplating joining an Antarctic operation prior to his death.The organisation consists mainly of volunteers who work on land and on sea to support the cause, and donations are welcome. Free tours of the ship run every Sunday Sunday from 12-4 p.m. beside Seaworks in Williamstown.

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I haven’t had the pleasure of watching the Edge of the World… As part of the tour, an informative trailer regarding the latest campaign (Operation Icefish) against illegal poaching of the Patagonian and Antarctic toothfish which had a successful outcome was shown. Not quite sure who Leanne is though.
