Sea Shepherd

Sea Shepherd is a radical environmental organisation that will be known to many of our readers. Even those who disagree with Sea Shepherd’s aims must respect their courage and tenacity in putting their ideas into practice.

Sea Shepherd have a reputation as a pirate organisation, with a skull and crossbones type symbol as their logo. However, they have also been described as a vigilante group (i.e. operating as law enforcers – the exact opposite of pirates). So perhaps their skull logo is more a matter of aesthetics than anything?

Sea Shepherd’s best known ship is named after Steve Irwin, the ‘Crocodile Hunter’, and Irwin was going to join Sea Shepherd for an expedition before his untimely death. He donated considerable sums of money to the group.

Tooth and Claw

There is often an influx of abandoned kittens and puppies in the aftermath of the Christmas period.

We would like to take this opportunity to highlight the work done by two worthy community organisations in the Greater Hobart area, namely the Hobart Cat Centre:

and the Hobart Dogs’ Home:

If you are considering getting a pet cat or dog, consider adopting one from these places rather than going to a pet shop and supporting the pet farming industry, where breeding mothers are often kept in appalling conditions.

The Hobart Cat Centre also runs the Black Cat op-shop at 441 Main Road, Glenorchy, and another op-shop at 1717 Channel Highway, Margate.
