Today is World Whale Day - celebrating whales all over the planet and the ban on commercial whaling in 1986. Though Sea Shepherd has evolved a lot in recent years, we still stay true to our cause, protecting our clients in the oceans, and while we might not be in Antarctica, our efforts are concentrated on saving all ocean species by combatting Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing. .
Whaling is an extremely serious issue, but IUU fishing is bringing whole ecosystems to collapse, taking the whales with them. This is why, on world whale day, we celebrate our past actions against whaling, and future actions to defend, conserve and protect the ocean eco-systems that the whales rely so heavily on to survive. .
Happy International Whale Day everyone! .
