Sea Shepherd vessel the Brigitte Bardot will be in Auckland, Monday December 10 and it will be the first time in 10 years that a Sea Shepherd vessel has visited Auckland. Sea Shepherd’s 2012-2013 Southern Ocean campaign Operation Zero Tolerance will be the strongest fleet in the history of Sea Shepherd to prevent whaling in International Whaling Commission protected waters. About 2/3 of New Zealand is within the Southern Ocean territory. This campaign is our biggest yet and we will be supported by four boats, four captains, crewed by over 120 committed conservationists from more than 23 nations, assisted by UAV drones, a helicopter, small boats, new tactics and 1000s of supporters.

The monohull trimaran the Brigitte Bardot will be docking in at Auckland after our Southern Pacific shark campaign and before joining the Sea Shepherd fleet to protect targeted fin and minke whale populations. Sea Shepherd has a successful history of conservation with an excess of 3600 whales have been saved during the past eight campaigns. The whale kill diminishes each year and is attributable to Sea Shepherd direct action whereby “we must permanently end illegal whaling in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary” according to Captain Sid Chakravarty of the flagship vessel the Steve Irwin.

The Brigitte Bardot will be docked at the Hobson West Marina between the Maritime Museum and Floating Pavilion.
