As part of Sustainability month we were invited to watch the film by Fed Square
Watson is a movie talking about one man’s life in saving all the whales and marine lives. He started Sea shepherd. They are passionate about tackling key issues in our oceans such as illegal fishing and plastic. Climate change is another key threat. Sea Shepherd was founded in 1977 by Paul Watson. He was passionate about saving the earth! It was hard and they tried many times to save them. The global moratorium was passed in 1986 and we saved over 5000 whales! Commercial whaling is where they kill the whale and its sad
Paul has a lot of awards for his work with animals. He is American. The feds wanted him for something at first! He lived in Vancouver and he worked on ships as a whaler and traveled to Iraq. He used to throw bombs and killed sea life and then he didn’t want to do it. The ocean is full of whales. He is an environmental activist. Greenpeace was not a part of the whale and part of whaling. The baby whale had been killed by the Russians!
We want to protect our oceans and marine life and make it beautiful
Before that Sea Shepherd talked about how much rubbish we waste. They talk about plastic being eaten by the animals!
Plastic kills marine life
We need to stem the tide of plastic in the ocean! The amount of trash that people throw out is so high. They did 4km of the 14km of beach and they collected 7100 tonnes of rubbish
Dulpan is a beach far from Anaheim land. Sea Shepherd volunteers joined forces with the Dimaru rangers to clean the beaches. Some of the rubbish comes from South East Asia
They would have collected 250000 tonnes of rubbish. We need to get rid of our plastic addiction so that our marine life does not die. We all have a part to play to make our country beautiful
It is run by Sea Shepherd who looks after our seas and wildlife. Their project is run for two weeks a year and the rangers clean it the rest of the time
The people clean the beach with the nets and its a challenge to get it to landfill! There are many steps to get there. They have to take it to the campsite. The rubbish and nets have to be sorted
When the restrictions ease on museums and other tourist places and travel in Melbourne, we encourage you to visit Sea shepherd in Williamstown and get involved.
