As humans, we're shaped by the experiences that get us outside our comfort zone. The rush of adrenaline that comes from a scare, a laugh, or pure repulsion causes our brains to record things more clearly than normal.
Michael's jump into the Sea of Cortez to save Valentina was symbolic of his frustration at the current situation that these majestic animals face, his way of appealing to all of us to do our bit and speak up for the whales to our appropriate agencies and governments.
The new moon of March 31, 2014 ushered in a long overdue win for the whales of the Great Southern Ocean and Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. An ex...
Given Russia's use of natural gas exports to bully Ukraine and Western Europe in the current crisis, sanctions should be expanded to include companies working in Russia's oil and gas export sector.
Following a winter that was exceptionally harsh for much of the United States, spring has finally returned. Milder weather, longer days, and the re-emergence of flowers and creatures should remind us of the wonders of nature that are just outside our doors. Help your kids to appreciate and understand the eco-world around us.

Must whales and dolphins be subjected to deafening noise that will cause more than 3.5 million instances of temporary and/or permanent hearing loss?
The constant whine from fleets of motorized vessels crisscrossing the global seas, sonar blasts created by military exercises, and deafening booms from air guns used in oil and gas exploration have created a frightening environment for many marine species.
There's an old adage that the environment is never saved -- just continually being saved. And the U.S. Navy's testing and training with high-intensity active sonar is a perfect example.
We would like to introduce you to several people who made such an impressive impact with their grant that we've awarded them another grant to continue seeding the change.
Even though I am a teenager in Chicago, I believe I can make a difference. And that's to stop feeding into this multi-billion dollar industry.
When fishing gear scoops up, hooks, entangles, or otherwise harms another creature not destined for market, it's called bycatch: an innocuous term for a senseless waste of marine life. Bycatch occurs all over the world's oceans on a massive scale.
For the past year I have extensively covered the 'Global War Against Nature.' Without question the relentless massacring of whales has been the most g...
What Hermanus is most famous for is its giant guests who stop by once a year to frolic in the waters of Walker Bay.
All I see is fur. Part of a claw, some paw. Suddenly, in a flash of sunlight, I know. A polar bear. Alive and enormous, bobbing down and up in waves and tilting like a buoy.
