Reality Checks with Staci-lee
Staci-lee chats with Captain Paul Watson, known for his work with Greenpeace and founding Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. He explains his departure from Greenpeace, which happened because he believed in a more direct action approach rather than just bearing witness to animal abuse.
Captain Paul Watson is one of those people that stands as a symbol of an active activist. While petitions and peaceful protests have their place, Captain Watson has always believed in the power of direct action. Speaking for the voiceless is a trying and never ending lifelong mission and so many burn out, lose hope or end up corrupted by it. For Captain Watson he is still going strong after more than 50 years.
Listen as we talk about the seal hunts, the pilot whales in the Faroe Islands, whale hunting around the globe and how some conservation groups may not be staying on the path of conservation as they claim. You will learn some tough truths about what is really going on with our oceans and marine life and what you can do to help turn the tides in their favor.
