Earlier this year, Lincoln Shaw spent almost 3 months helping disrupt a Japanese whaling fleet in Antarctica as a volunteer for the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS). As a part of the crew on the Bob Barker, he dealt with violent storms in the Southern Ocean, where swells reached as high as 50 feet, sustained winds of 50 to 60 mph, confrontations with the Japanese whaling boats, and watching another boat, the Ady Gil, being rammed and sunk. Surrounded by frozen beauty, Shaw took photographs throughout this journey, and will tell his story of what happened aboard the Bob Barker.
A crew from Animal Planet Network’s reality show “Whale Wars” was also on board. The current season features Lincoln and others from the Bob Barker, the Steve Irwin and the Ady Gil confronting the Japanese whaling fleet in the Antarctic whaling sanctuary.
NOTE: No whales were killed during his watch and no brutal images will be shown during this presentation.
