We live in a changing world where we don’t know what the future will hold. But try and create a better world we must. There is no greater example of a social activist than Captain Paul Watson, founder of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Over the past forty years he has saved thousands of whales from the fate of a cruel death by poaching, working tirelessly to stop whaling around the world.
This year Japan killed 333 minke whales in its annual Antarctic hunt, supposedly in the name of scientific research. Japan intends to take nearly 4000 whales over the next 12 years for its research program, with the ultimate goal of resuming commercial whaling.
He says there’s no better time than now to become an activist and help save the environment and stop the insanity. “It’s up to each one of us to discover our passion and make a difference.”
Here Captain Paul Watson speaks his mind about being labeled a terrorist, his encounter with a dying whale, and his personal utopia.
