Save Captain Paul Watson – Sea Shepherd

By Liz

Captain Paul Watson is a Canadian born long time activist.  He is one of the co-founders of Greenpeace and the founder of Sea Shepherd.  He has spent his life at sea saving countless animals and trying to stop illegal fishing, whaling, shark finning etc.

In 2007, Sea Shepherd released a documentary called Sharkwater.  In this film Paul Watson and his team  tried to put an end to the shark finning industry in 2002.  While doing so. he made a citizen’s arrest of a vessel, the Veraderos I, for finning sharks illegally.  Communication got crossed and the Sea Shepherd crew were actually told to release the Veraderos I and were in turn arrested for attempted murder and shipwrecking.  When released on bail the Sea Shepherd group left Costa Rica.  Now 10 years later Paul Watson is being held in Germany waiting to be extradited to Costa Rica.

Here is a video of Pamela Anderson in support of letting Paul Watson go:

If interested in Sharkwater, here is the trailer:

Barbie Goes Green

by Liz

Barbie has been in the news a lot lately.  Apparently Barbie and Ken have been on and off again for awhile and are officially together again! We can all rest easy now.  The newest development is a little more interesting.  Greenpeace exposed Mattel for severe deforestation in Indonesia’s rain forests.  This has caused many animals, including endangered animals.  So Mattel has given in and reduced their packaging for the iconic doll.  Watch a funny video made by Greenpeace below.
