Deckhand - Australia

I’m 32 and from Sydney, Australia. This is my first campaign with Sea Shepherd and my role on The Bob Barker is Deckhand and Crane Operator.

In the past I’ve had many different jobs including working in the shipping industry and driving cranes, which is why I thought I might be able to be of use on board.

The reason that I am here is to help protect these threatened and endangered whales from the cruel, illegal and unnecessary slaughter carried out by the whaling fleet. But saving these beautiful creatures is just a small part of saving the planet from the destruction and disconnection we as a species have created. I believe we all can play a role in healing the planet and our human societies. And I hope that the compassion for the whales that so many people feel will spread into caring for the oceans, the planet and all living beings upon it.
