Infringement Procedure against Denmark

Sea Shepherd asks European Commission to hold Denmark accountable for pilot whale slaughter

Police officers employed by Denmark on board a Faroese boat actively engaged in herding pilot whales for the Grind slaughter.With the formal support of 27 Members of the European Parliament, Sea Shepherd Netherlands has officially submitted a request to the European Commission to launch infringement proceedings against Denmark for facilitating the slaughter of pilot whales and other cetaceans in the Faroe Islands.

Every year from June through November, hundreds of pilot whales are driven onto the beaches of the Faroe Islands using motor boats, then slaughtered in a practice known as the grindadráp, or Grind. Although there is an EU directive prohibiting member states from all forms of deliberate disturbance, capture, or killing of cetaceans, the self-governing Faroe Islands are a dependent territory of Denmark but not an EU member state and are, therefore, exempt from EU laws.

Sea Shepherd Global Statement Regarding Japanese Slaughter of 333 Minke Whales

Photo: Glenn Lockitch/Sea Shepherd GlobalDespite our efforts to once again disrupt the slaughter of whales in the Southern Ocean, the Japanese whaling fleeting has reached their self-allocated quota of killing 333 minke whales.

Today Sea Shepherd mourns the loss of these whales. We have called an emergency meeting of the Global Board of Directors in Amsterdam this weekend to review our whale defense strategy in the Southern Ocean, and will release a more detailed statement on Monday morning.

Sea Shepherd Assists Liberian Coast Guard in Arrest of Cargo Vessel on Suspicion of Identity Fraud and IUU Fishing

Photo: Alejandra Gimeno/Sea Shepherd Global.On March 21st, after receiving intelligence that a refrigerated cargo vessel was suspected of transmitting a fraudulent identity outside the Port of Monrovia, the Liberian Coast Guard assisted by Sea Shepherd crew and Israeli maritime advisors and conservationists boarded the 93-meter Sierra Leone-flagged motor vessel (M/V) Lian Run.

The Automatic Identification System (AIS), a navigational aid which a vessel uses to transmit its identifying information, such as name and radio call sign, was transmitting an IMO number that did not exist in any record. IMO numbers are unique identifiers that remain linked to a vessel throughout its lifetime to improve the safety of life at sea and reduce maritime fraud.

This is the first year that Sea Shepherd has returned to protect the whales from the Japanese poachers since their new and revised “research” program was started in the 2015/2016 season, when they killed 333 minke whales, more than half of them pregnant females. The Japanese government seems unconcerned by the opinion of the rest of the world and despite tough words from the international community, nothing has been done to put a stop to this “research whaling” charade.

OPERATION NEMESIS UPDATE: Images of Japanese Poachers caught with Dead Whale Go Viral

Dead minke whale on the deck of the Nisshin Maru. Photo: Glenn LockitchIn the 48 hours following Sea Shepherd’s discovery of a Japanese whaling vessel poaching in the Australian Whale Sanctuary, images of the harpooned minke whale on its deck have gone viral, generating international outrage, as well as criticism from the Australian government.

Photographs and video footage taken from the helicopter of Sea Shepherd’s MV Steve Irwin show the crew of the Nisshin Maru factory ship hastily concealing the slaughtered whale with a tarp, while the crew of the nearby Yushin Maru scrambled to cover their harpoon guns. But the damage was already done. “Once again Sea Shepherd caught the Japanese whale poachers with blood on their hands,” said Sea Shepherd Global Director, Captain Alex Cornelissen. The images immediately went viral on Twitter and Facebook, reaching over 4.5 million views by Tuesday morning, and has been picked up by all major international press outlets in the US, Europe, Asia, and Australia/New Zealand.
