These people are idiots. They have been stranded at sea many times by, among other things, running out of fuel, mechanical break downs of which none
of them had any idea how to diagnose much less fix, and running aground as well as ice. It's a wonder these people aren't dead already. Their luck
will run out one day and the picture's not gonna be pretty. And this all just their seafarring skills. It's a friggin miracle everyone just doesn''t
shoot them on sight. They fly the Jolly Roger for god's sake. They have admirable goals, but are complete and utter idiots about how they go about
obtaining them. But I guess thats what keeps the ratings up.
One day a fishing vessel is going to report they are being attacked by Pirates. The Australians or the Chinese are going to respond and sink the
vessel. The time and money would be better spent on a coming up with a captive breeding program to help restock sea life insted of harrassing others,
gettting arrested and giving the money to lawyers.
This is what Wikipedia says about these guys:
Operations have included scuttling and disabling whaling vessels at harbor, intervening in Canadian seal hunts, ramming other vessels, trying to
temporarily blind or disorient whalers with a laser device, throwing bottles of foul-smelling butyric acid onto vessels at sea, boarding of
whaling vessels while at sea, and seizure and destruction of drift nets at sea. Sea Shepherd claims that their aggressive actions are necessary as the
international community has shown itself unwilling or unable to stop species-endangering whaling and fishing practices. Some governments and
organizations have referred to them as terrorists.
