Sea Shepherd to “put an end to” Iceland’s whaling

Paul Watson, leader of the environmental organization Sea Shepherd, has announced his ship Farley Mowat will begin its journey from Australia to Iceland today to “put an end to” Iceland’s commercial whaling.

In a statement to the media, Watson said Sea Shepherd would not allow Icelanders to exterminate whales and the members of his organization were willing to risk their ship and lives to protect the animals, reports.

In 1986 Sea Shepherd sank two Icelandic whaling ships and in February the organization came into conflict with Japanese whaling ships.
