Update from Captain Paul Watson on Operation Zero Tolerance. As blogged earlier, the ships will converge and head together to intercept the whalers before they even get to the whale sanctuary. The whalers have never left this late in their entire history. Good news "for the whales and for us."
The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society also has this video at their website introducing the newest vessel in their fleet -- in an interesting turn of events, a former Japanese whaling ship -- The San Simon -- discussed by Captain Locky MacLean of France and Canada. Altogether, the four vessels are now carrying 120 people from 24 nations.
