"Whale Wars" Captain Watson discusses life at sea

Captain Paul Watson has chased down, rammed, and sunk pirate whaling ships; disrupted seal hunts; and halted the slaughter of dolphins. He has been assaulted, jailed, and threatened. And now he will be speaking at Penn State Berks about his adventures on the high seas on Wednesday, November 18, at 7:30 p.m. in the Perkins Student Center Auditorium. This presentation is free and open to the public.

Watson isn't just the controversial star of Animal Planet's hit show Whale Wars; he's an international marine conservationist and environmentalist with four decades of experience defending marine life, who was selected by TIME Magazine as one of the Environmental Heroes of the twentieth century. Watson was a co-founder of the Greenpeace Foundation, and in 1977 he established the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, the most aggressive and effective international marine conservation enforcement organization in the world. Watson has led over 250 campaigns to protect and defend marine wildlife in all the world's oceans.
