Sea Shepherd at Paint FactoryMembers of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, including founder Captain Paul Watson, paid a visit to our headquarters, the Tarr and Wonson Paint Manufactory in Gloucester, MA this weekend. The stars of the Animal Planet series “Whale Wars” had a tour of the facility and paid a visit to local businesses and restaurants during their stay, attracting quite a bit of attention on Main Street where the locals recognized and welcomed them to Gloucester.
Sea Shepherd partnered with Ocean Alliance this year for the first time for Operation Toxic Gulf, our  joint expedition following up on the BP Oil Spill. It was Watson’s first visit to the Paint Factory since re-entering the U.S. in November.
“Whale Wars” returns to Animal Planet in a two-hour special television event on Friday, December 13 from 9-11 PM (ET/PT). “WHALE WARS: A COMMANDER RISES”  will chronicle the Sea Shepherds’ 2012-2013 “Zero Tolerance” mission in the Southern Ocean to stop Japanese whalers.
