Not a hudge fan of reality TV, but I did enjoy Whale Wars. Its inspirational to know that somethigs in life are worth dying for. Some of the risks are over the top, but the overcomming commitment and general support from society seem to prepetuate this documented endeavor into a place of honor.

helping endangered species is a good thing, don't get me wrong. the ppl in this documentary are strong willed and care about why they are on the open ocean, However, it seemed to me, that the volunteers need more help!!, the 5ships compared to the 2-3 smaller ships they have throughout the documentary just don't do enough to actually make any real impact on the Japanese whalers. They have more money, more resources and bigger ships and more crew, I say, blow them out of the water then they can get the job done. Throwing stink bombs on deck doesn't do anything. I watched this dvd set for hours and didn't see any whale being saved, most of the time, they just searched for the ship they shouldn't have even been tailing. Take out the Harpoon ships then you're saving whales lives. Tha's my opinion.

A++ for the Sea Shepherd!!!!!


Add a Summary

I am a Sea Shepherd crew member and I think that the willing to die to save whales is the best thing anyone can do. We are NOT a terrorist group. The real Eco-Terrorists are the ones killing our oceans (the whalers in the Faroe Islands, the Dolphin Killers In Taiji Japan, and the Southern Ocean). And one thing you MUST know is that we (humans) are fishing out the ocean at such an alarming rate that all the worlds fisheries are in the state of collapse. And by the year of 2025 there will be no more fisheries because we would have fished out all the marine life. Humans adapt to diminishment that we cause one species of fish to go extinct and then we move on to another one to destroy and so on and so on.

We (humans) are just a conceited naked ape, a divine legend in our own minds that we see ourselves as some sort of god, seeing what will die and what will live, see what will survive and what will be destroyed, see what will thrive and what will go extinct, but honestly we're just a bunch of primates out of control.
