Established in 1977, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS) is an international marine wildlife conservation organization. The group’s mission is to end the destruction of oceanic habitats and species. Sea Shepherd uses innovative direct-action tactics to investigate, document, and intervene when necessary to expose and confront illegal activities at sea. By safeguarding the biodiversity of our delicately balanced ocean ecosystems, SSCS works to ensure their preservation for future generations.
Support from the Cultures of Resistance Network helped fund SSCS’ Antarctic Whale Defense Campaign an effort to oppose the illegal activities of the Japanese whaling fleet in the Southern Ocean.
