I’m Oona Layolle, I’m French and I’m 30 years old. I am a qualified Master 5, and I am First Mate on board The Bob Barker for Operation Relentless.
I joined Sea Shepherd in May 2011 for the second Blue Rage Campaign in the Mediterranean Sea. Since then I haven’t stopped working for Sea Shepherd. Operation Relentless will be my third campaign in Antarctica.
I have always had a very close relationship with the sea. Coming from a seafaring family. I have been saddened by how humans behave towards the oceans, and I am shocked by how quickly we are destroying them.
Fighting to stop our oceans from dying with Sea Shepherd is a privilege and the proudest adventure I’ve ever experienced.
