This is probably where many of you know us from, the iconic David and Goliath struggle of the Southern Ocean as documented by the Animal Planet series 'Whale Wars'. Though we might not be going to the Southern Ocean regularly anymore, we indeed are still fighting for the whales, although not directly.
How so? Well, industrial fishing is responsible for the deaths of some 300.000 whales and dolphins every year. Especially Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing, as it often uses very destructive fishing methods that not only harm whales and dolphins, but also destroy the eco-systems that all life, including whales and dolphins, rely on to survive. We took the decision to save the many over the few. We understand that it might not be the popular decision, but we are not here to be popular. We are here to save the oceans, and hope you will join us on that journey.
