Sea Shepherd update: Sea Shepherd Vessel Brigitte Bardot Relaunched and Ready For Action

Sea Shepherd update: Sea Shepherd Vessel Brigitte Bardot Relaunched and Ready For Action

Critical ship’s systems were still being recommissioned during launch, Brigitte Bardot Captain Luis Manuel Pinho explained: “We had to manually handle the ship from the crane slings to a dock, because some systems were still not operational and we could not test them out of the water, so this was the first challenge we had to face.” Sea Shepherd Australia Director Jeff Hansen, who lives in Fremantle, and was present during the launch, commented “many Australians' hearts sank when they saw the Bardot coming back to port so soon during operation Divine Wind, as it plays such a pivotal role as the pursuit vessel in finding the factory whaling ship. Australians are some of the most passionate defenders of whales in the world and it has been fantastic to see the local businesses and volunteers come together to rally for the great whales.”
