#TBT - 6 years ago yesterday! In an attempt to illegally refuel in the Southern Ocean, the Nisshin Maru rams The MV Bob Barker, The MV Steve Irwin and its own tanker, the Sun Laurel.
Operation Zero Tolerance(2012 - 2013) was the height of the "Whale Wars" in the Southern Ocean, and a season where Sea Shepherd prevented the Japanese poachers from taking 90% of their kill quota.
In December 2018, the Japanese whalers announced their retreat from the Southern Ocean, leaving the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary intact and the whales safe.
When was our first campaign in the Southern Ocean? Eliza Muirhead / Sea Shepherd
