#SeaShepherd :: Operation Ferocious Isles: Defending the Rights of #Whales in the Faeroe Islands
With Sea Shepherd’s Founder Captain Paul Watson at the helm of the flagship Steve Irwin, Sea Shepherd feels that the added support from the fast interceptor vessel the Brigitte Bardot, captained by veteran crewmember Locky MacLean, a larger operatives team, and essential new technology will create an impact this year in the Faroes similar to their success with the Antarctic whale defense campaign in the Southern Ocean earlier this year. The conservation group intends to deploy acoustical devices to lay down a wall of sound in the path of the migrating whales to prevent them from approaching the islands. Sea Shepherd will also film and document the atrocities committed in the Faeroes, and share it all with the public to create awareness; this tactic has proven highly effective in defending the great whales.
