i thimk what you guyes/girls are doing is great and the japanese people should be stopped.thanks for careing about the whales. :)
i think its a good what those people are doing but i think all those people on that ship is a bunch of pussys except the captain why get on the ship if everybody scared to to take physical actions. what they think if they ask them to stop killing whales they will stop. the captain needs a hole new crew people with balls they just want to be on tv
I just watched your show for the first time tonight and I just want to say to all you men and women what heros I think you all are. To risk your lives to say the whale lives is so incredibly brave and admirable. This gives us all a little window of just what kind of wonderful unselfish people you all are. You guys are what character is made of. God bless each and every one of you and stay safe and keep up the awesome awesome job you do everyday. Sincerley one very proud viewer Paula O'Leary
Well...I love whales as much as the next person, but come on. I am a lover of all species of animals, and it bothers me to see innocent animals killed for no reason. However, this endeavor is clearly the most naive effort of trying to help these animals that I have ever seen. The captain is inexperienced, makes stupid decisions, and has to be called to the helm when he should be there to begin with. The crew are merely a bunch of radical whale lovers who know nothing about the raging ocean or dangers that await them. I'm thinking as I am watching this show for the last time, "Hey, let's save a whale, but kill our fellow humans all in the name of the holy whale." I wonder how many of these people have killed spiders, ants, wasps, mosquitoes, gnats, snakes, mice, birds, and many other rodents or animals for one reason or another? This method of protecting the whales is dangerous and ridiculous. Did I mention that the ship is old, mangled, and not even worthy to be in the places they are going. Their techniques for disrupting the whalers are merely riotous stone throwing, tear gasing type techniques that are quite hilarious and childish. I wish we could have people like this working this diligently in our inner cities and impoverished neighborhoods to save our kids and families from gangs, murderers, and abusers. I think they are just out there because they are all looking for some kind of crazy adventure. Well...they are certainly getting their adventure. They didn't have to get on a ship to get the crazy part because I think they were already there. "God" save the whales.
be a little more dramtic you pussys
i couldnt agree more... i love whales and respect the ocean but get these limp men off the waters and let the big boys handle business
Save the whales, dont buy anything made in Japan.
love what you guys are doing for the whales and im going to go as fare to say id love to come out for a season on the ship to help and not just say good job but go as fare as to come give a hand and follow orders!devin
watching whale wars on todays episode peter brown or paul brown appeared to be a negative individual who thinks everyone else is dumber than he is . I think that the captain of th steve erwin should really sit down with him and make him understand that everyone is there to help with the campaign and not to out rank him. I think that he is a pretentious ass that should either be removed or straightened out because he is making the whole crew look stupid and incompetent .Note to the captainThanks,joe DuenasGood luck and good work to all the crew members except peter brown
Species die all the time do to the environment and human intervention. I do believe that we should try to protect all organisms and species to the best as possibility. And I do believe that whale do need to be protected and save as humanly possibility. And the Japaneses need to stop what they are doing. However, people like Richard head or (Dick Head) like Paul Watson need to find a better of protecting them. Very time I watch the show, whales wars, I praying this ship blows up or sinks.What Richard head is doing is High Sea vigilant there need to be and international police force that patrol that part of the ocean to chase or even arrest any violators of the open oceans Laws. Not some stupid Richard head that does not have a clue what he is doing.
Take your first mate Paul and shove him off to the jap boats! All he does is complain and argue!
OK... everyone has their own opinion on these things... but as far as I can see, no one else is out there trying to stop these malicious killers from endangering this species any more than they already are. Everyone on that ship is there because they believe in what they are doing. I agree... they do need to get rid of the guy who thinks he knows everything and doesn't agree to any type of change. Change is sometimes a good thing. The one thing we know, that's probably an absolute is that the Japanese are not doing "research" as they say. I feel someone has to make a statement whether it's the right or wrong way.
Great passion~good to see someone cares enough to dedicate their time and energy~realize ynu are doing everything you can physically and legally~however wish the world that outlawed whaling would help “police“ the illegal activities as well and enforce the very activities they determined to be unacceptable.
I fully concur with Whalewaranalyst. While the mission is quite noble, the show is a farce. I am unsure of the captain and I am definitely unsure of the crew. They are a bunch of idealogical hooligans who are looking for an identity. If they just put their time, money and energy into the political arena and getting the word out to the internation community you would choke the whaling industry. To even call this a 'war' is blasphemy. Soldiers die everyday in real wars. These 'kids' are inexperienced in life as well as being on the ocean. It's embarrassing. I do salute your noble cause but get a plan and execute it. Don't float around the ocean with toilet paper and stink bombs.
Come on guys, you are comming off like a bunch of childish idiots. Saving the whales is a noble idea, but you guys need a better approach. There is NO WAY that I think you guys know what you are doing.
I watch the show, I actually have sympathy for these whales, but Japan is a sovereign and friendly nation. Personally, I watch this show in hopes to see one of these whaling vessels put a harpoon through the captain.
here is an idea about how to get around those nets: just like those water baloon sling shot (the professional ones that shoot 300+ feet ) use those or up grade it to shoot the bottles of acid you guys use to get them over the nets.
Also if they try to take the prop fouler again you should get a grapple gun or some thing and in the middle of the takeing it just drive of with it grappled on to one of the little boats.P.S. Great Job P.P.S ill tell you if i get any good ideas for attack.
I shudder at the thought of you kids trusting your life with that idiotic crew. Is there something wrong (mentally) with the captain?Thank goodness you got a different 1st mate. Now that first guy was a moron!
I have been watching the news about the jellyfish that have been coming to the surface lately. It has been stated that Japan is the area that is having the biggest problem with these jellyfish and that they are growing larger and they are producing more offspring. It seems to me that Japan is killing the one creature that eats the same food as the jelyfish. Thereby leaving more food for the jellyfish. If the whales are not around or are killed then that will leave more plankton for the jellyfish to feed on and then they will comtinue to reproduce. It would seem that the whales do have a place in our environment. They are here to keep the population of the jellyfish down by eating all of the plankton available so that the jellyfish would have to go deaper to get the food that they need to survive.But if the whalers continue to ignore this fact, and they do kill out all of the whales. What are people going to do about all of the jellyfish that will be plugging up the waterways? And what about their chldren who cannot go into the water to play because of the jellyfish which happen to be alot more dangerous than the whales.The whalers need to sit back a minute and take a look at what they are doing to the environment. There is no telling how bad of an impact the loss of the whales will have on our world or our lives.Also to mention, I do believe that we can sythetically produce everything that we take from the whales. We just have to WANT to do it, and to save our world for our children.
watson was kicked out of greenpeace imagine that. I agree watson is a cowardly ecoterrorist that exploits the naive volenteers, some have been hurt. The phony bullet that watson planted so the Japanese seem to be taking new extreme action against the poor protesters, what a joke. watson is a joke and a bad one to say otherwise would be disingenious. My hope is the Dutch de-register the steve inrwin and ban the ship and crew from their ports, before one of those naive protesters are maimed or killed. :)
As for me I wouldn't care if the Steve Erwin launched torpedoes at the Japs. The same way they launched torpedoes at the U.S. battleships.Killing Whales as they needlessly dois close to insane. Maybe whales are the most intelligent species on earth - not us.
GOD save the Whales because CAPTAIN DUMB ASS'S knowledge about the SEA is nil how do they even get out of port His lifes work of being on the SEA looks like 30 days!!! Driving through ice NO concearn about human life! think he wants one of the treehuggers to DIE !!! wonder if they no how to put on their gumbie suit! Last 1st MATE probably cut holes in them because he didn/t believe in ice charts he used the FORCE and said U die to quickley due to cold water (NO SHIT) maybe they should watch deadlestcatch and take some coastgaurd courses!!!Hope no one gets hurt and the show is entertaining and GOD SAVE THE WHALES I will pray for them just remember ! 12/21/2012 is coming! only GOD can save U PS Japans 56% for killing and eating Whales !!!!!!!!!!!!
Isn't it possible that the helicopter drop the not lethal chemicals directly on the whaling boats from above, as apposed to the small boats? Or is that an illegal action? Just a thought. I'm not sure of the laws regarding that...AmandaLynnwood, WA
Could kites be used to carry the gift packages aboard the whalers ships. How about using magnets in the prop fowlers to hold on the hulls while the ships stop and drag back to the prop when they take off again?What about smoke bombs to blind the whalers on the water cannons and LRADS?
Visitwww.animalplanet.com/whalewarsorhttp://www.seashepherd.orgWhy not use lasers to distract the whalers shotong water canons? You could also disrupt bridge operations as well.Also the Word Verification rarley shows the word to type and the handicap logo does not play when the word does not show.
i love yall.i think yall are doing great.i asol think that you should be more aggressive on stopping whales.i'm watching the new episode 18 omg they jest shot a whale there beaing very aggressive.and u need to be more aggressive to.I'M COUNTING ON YALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
you guys are all idiots.... i am japanese and I LOVE WHALE MEAT! take that you enviromental hippies!AND I AM SO GLAD THAT THEY GET TO SEE A WHALE DIE INFRONT OF THEIR FACES! THEY ARE A WASTE OF MONEY! AND LIKE THEY CAN ACTUALLY DO ANYTHING!??!! you are wasting AND risking you lives for a STUPID BIG FISH! and besides their not whaling just for meat, its also for scientific research also! LOSERS!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have watched every episode thus far, and truly beleive in what they have been doing. What they do on a daily basis require more courge then what most people could never muster. This war the crew are fighting apear to be losing the war they sought to fight they need to step up their actions to prevent bucuse their old tactics are no longer working. If I had a way to join their team I would do it in a heartbeat and not only hope but actuly try and make a difference in our world. The captian of the ship should be somone that needs to be looked up to he has to make decisions that no ordinary people could find a solution to and live with it.Great job Keep it up!
I don't think all fo the whale meat they use is for sample what the hell are they finding in that much death nothing just trying to feed an over crouded country and it will only be a temperary suply if they keep up what they are doin then what will happen after that they will all starve Find a permenat solution to your problems not somthing that will last a few years GOD WILL NOT HELP US quit praying that he will we have to make a diference not an idiol that has not done a thing exept stand by and watch the monstrosity if in fact he/she truly does exist.
To that Japanese person who left the comment on August 14th @7:00.... you are a disgusting piece of shit. NO doubt about it!
Why can't the Heli drop on the harpoon ships? Or better yet just sink all the Japs. Man is the ruination of this world!!
Death to the Japanese whalers. They should be shot in the head at close range. Bomb them out of the water.
With all the people around the world that are DYING, you guys waste your time with some stupid whales...Ok so now tell me, what about the Racoons that are being skinned alive to make COATS? and then die a gorey and really unfair DEATH?, and what about baby seals? Getting a huge NAIL smashed on the back of your soft newborn skull doesn't really seem tempting.Why are WHALES much more important?Whales are HUGE, they stand a chance, What, Seals just crawl around, completely unaware!And MORE IMPORTANTLY, What about the poor useless and unhappy HUMANS in Africa and India and everywhere else?What about World Hunger?MAYBE you could use all that money and "Motivation" to save the HUMAN RACE.I know it's wrong, but WTF?What's more important???HMMM LET'S THINK...P.S: Nice job on the crappy website.
First off, I want to say that I am a "hunter gatherer" type of guy. I know, not the one that should be adding comments here, I'm sure. though I still believe in killing elk, deer, rabbits, coyotes, etc. I have to say that the episode that I saw tonight certainly changed my opinion on what the Sea Shepherds goal is. I initially just thought of the "cause" as an entertainment factor. I now fell the the same drive as the crew as far as the need to stop whaling. Don't get me wrong, I strongly agree with whalewaranalysts opinion regarding the captain and crew, HOWEVER, I also believe that the whale numbers continue to dwindle in front of our eyes. This does indeed need to come to an end. Though I may not entirely agree with the tactics, I believe the cfrew is heading in the right direction. My only question is, WHY THE HELL COULDN'T THE CHOPPER FLY IN FRONT OF THE HARPOONER?! ----PUUUUUUUSSSSSSSSYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!sincerely, the guy that says fuck that pilot....what a Nancy!
First, I've never seen a bigger bunch of bumbling idiots. Paul Watson has absolutely no ship-handling, leadership, or reasoning skills. And the crew members are mindless sheeple. Whales have no rights. Only humans do. The Japanese should put a torpedo up the Sea Shepherds ass!
One whale, 2 whales, 3 whales, 4. Hope the Japanese fleet kills more!!! Maybe you worthless morons on the Sea Shepherd should look at things this way...Every dead whale means:1.) the Japanese can pursue their research2.) hungry humans can eat3.) the seagulls way out at sea can finally get a square meal4.) and less krill, plankton, and small fish will be eaten and killed by the ruthless whales"KILL WHALES-SAVE KRILL"
If the japanese whailing ships are now protecting themselves with nets why not get some sort of air cannon that could launch the acid bottles from a safe distance and that could get the bottles over the net(since the crew members arent doing a good job). if this cannon like i said cannot be abtained, why not equip the helicopter with a net filled with these acid bottles to do an aerial attack sonce the nets only cover the sides i mena come on people use your headsWE HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY FOR IT :)
These japanese know what they are doing is wronge and the things that they are doing to the sea sheaperd is also wronge i think the sea sheaperd should get a cannon like gun to though there asid ferther on to there ships.. I can tell that the japanes pepole are going to do anything and everythng that they can to keep whaleing so we need to do anything and everthing that we can do to STOP them, maybe we need more ships on the HUNT also they havr more then one we should have more then one.. Just keep doing anything you can to stop them....
I just started watching your show this year, and was disturbed when the Japanese loaded three whales in front of you and killed a four as you could only watch. If they do this again, you should use their horrendous activiity to your advantage. Collect and process their whale waste to puree, bottle, bake on the sun, and use a ammunition for when you run low on butyric acid. I'm sure that would cause quite a stench!!! Good luck. Keep up the good work.
i think that its horrible that they would kill whales in front of you guys. its such a sad sight to see. and i agree with you that they should be stopped!!!! i will keep whatching your show and i hope you have the chance to stop them!!!
THIS SHOW MAKES ME SO ANGRY. YOU GUYS ARENT EVEN TAKING CHARGE OF THE SITUATION! YOU MAKE AMERICANS LOOK STUPID THOSE JAPANESE PEOPLE AREN'T GOING TO STOP WITHOUT BRUTAL FORCE! IF I WERE YOU I'D THROW GRENADES ON THEIR SHIPS AND KILL EVERY SINGLE ON OF THOSE SHORT THINGS. YOU BASICALLY JUST SIT AND WATCH THESE WHALES DIE! YOU'RE NOT DOING ANYTHING! USE DIFFERENT TACTICS. THEY DESERVE TO DIE!
yea.... so i tried to watch this show a few times now...and really you guys are not doin jack shit out there but floating around crying and filming whale slaughters for everyone to watch...whale wars??? we get to watch whales get harpooned left, right and center while you guys fail to throw stink bombs at the jap ships...come on really...its actually quite hilarious how bad your failing at this cause...back to the drawing board on that one...who pays for this anyway?? they must be pissed at their lack of results...dont get me wrong i support the cause but really you got to figure out a real way physically or legally stop them japs...we are americans and canadiens...no one messes with us. Whooop
Damn Japs are at it again. Always doing something F__ked up! We should have dropped more bombs on them when we had the chance. I think what there doing in the name of research is a travesty. My problem with the Captain and crew of the Steve Erwin is there efforts are a joke. They are totally ineffective and there is not much thinking put in to a real effective plan. The Japs are laughing at this point at what idiots they are. What a waste of money and fuel it is, for them to run around and watch the whales get killed. This show will not last long if they cant do better than this. Veiwers will get frustrated and stop watching!!!
everyting you do is meaningles it wil change nothing...unless you do something effective. destroy the whales so they cant make profit?! now they die in vain and the killers have to work harder to kill more to make up for loss u r making it worse! the only way u wil make a differance is by sinking the harpoon ships. i dont know if u can legaly do that but if u run an unmanned craft with a solid metal spike below water level into them and constantly sink them there wont b ships to kill whales then they might think it over. what u resist presits
You guys and girls are doing great. I'm only 10 but my family and I are big conservationists and love the outdoors. I think what they are doing is wrong and think the japanese should stop the killing. I hope to join you when I'm old enough
you guys are a joke all you do is cry every time you bump your hand,hit your head,get sprayed with water.The fat captain just complains doesn't do shit but steer the boat and look like a jackass lol hope you hit an iceburg lol.
your show is great but lets be honest... whale makes for some good eats I was watching your show last night while enjoying some whale meat with a fine white wine yum yum.its nice to watch your show and see where my next meal is comming from so thanx ps. keep up the good work bahahahah
I have to admit, Animal Planet’s new comedy serious Whale Wars is very entertaining. In this era of zero originality where TV network simply rehash old ideas, I have to give praise to the Animal Planet. The channel has truly outdone itself with this very creative remake of Gilligan’s Island. They have even gone so far as to be sure the Skipper and the first mate resemble the Skipper and Gilligan on the original show. I do wish they would have picked up on the way the Skipper used to hit Gilligan with his hat though…that would really make the show the best!!!! I don’t think I have seen such a bunch of bumbling buffoons on one ship in my life. But what can you expect from people who have nothing else better to do with their lives. Who actually wastes money paying for this hippie barge to sail the seven seas??? The incompetence of the Sea Shepard’s crew is what really makes the show. Did anyone see the episode where they tried to bind up the Japanese fishing boats propellers and the boat’s props just cut the rope. Now that’s comedy. Thank goodness the only competent character in this play of whacky wonders is the helicopter pilot or the constant failures of the Sea Shepard’s crew could not be genuinely enjoyed from the vantage point offered by the chopper. Keep making the show…I love to laugh.
I hope this is read by members of the Sea Shepard I have an idea, Why don't you form a "blunderbus" of sorts to deliver your nasty smelling content to the deck of those ships. This would enable a farther distance and wider dispursement in order to still make the supplies make a difference. maybe even put some nasty liquid in a bunch of "Super soakers" or a power washer with a compressed air source. I am not onboard so I am sure what would work, but sometimes when you stare at a painting close up you can't see the real perspective until you back of and regroup. If I had any kind of money you would have it right now all I can offer it my creative ideas.hope they are of some use. Stay strong and know your doing the right thing from firstname.lastname@example.org
hey pissed off human people in Africa need to go where the food is and stop bringing babies into the world they can't care for or sell to the slave trade. Same with the population in India that keeps growing expadencially. Whales and other animals should not be exploited by cowards that hide behind the 'guise of research. They hurt no one and are a fading naturaly beautiful naive creature. What if we find they could teach us to cure a human disease after they are all gone. I also hate it when people think it's ok to ride in a truck with there Dog in the open truck bed.
awh f*ck, C'MON PEOPLE!YOU BIG FILTHY LIARSYou didn't even fuckin CARE about whales until you saw the stupid program, and it's never affected you until NOW.You're all just attention whores that want to look like you are supporting something GOOD.Clean your fuckin town first and then worry about people killing useless animals.Worry about animals being tortured for fur and left walking around SKINLESS. And Paula O'Leary, you are so naive it hurts.
I hope u guys rot in prison for jeoperdizing the whalers' lives by ramming your joke of a boat against them.
hey when yall want that shit to seriously STOP yall look for me... unless ur just makein a tv show im not wit that.. offer will always stand kp
I just want to say that I am a BIG FAN of watching Whale Wars. At first when I started to watch it I really didn't understand it. But the more and the more I watched it I got hooked. I couldn't wait till Friday when the new episodes would come on. You guys/girls are doing a awesome job. Keep up the good work. I myself would love to go out there and help you guys out. But since I have a family here at home in Nebraska its kinda hard for me to just up and leave for 6 months. I would really miss out on my baby growing up. She is 2 and a 1/2 months old. But anyway... I just wanted to say I seen Fridays episode where you guys got detaned for 5 hours after you pulled in. I think that was aweful. I hope there were NO CHARGE'S against you guys. You did nothing wrong. Your trying to save a animal out there, don't they see that? Anyway I hope nothing came about it. CONGRAT'S on the new married couple. I wish you all well, hope your safe at home with your loved ones. Can't wait till next season. I got alot of my friends hooked on your show as well. So PLEASE COME BACK!! I can't wait to see what next season brings. Hopefully you will catch them ........ You know what I mean. LOL Anyway love the show. God Bless you all and Hope your all doing well. See you next season. TJ from Nebraska (USA)
you's are all doing a very good job...
Seriously if you all think you can do better Get your ass out there and do it But there's no need to put others effort down And for the one who states they love whale meet well And those people are wasting their time F you Whales were here way be4 us just cause we got a mouth and can talk doesn't mean shityou're all cowards just taking out your anger on this website get out there and face your real problems And if you not interested in what this show is about get your ass off and do something real
I must admit I never truly cared about what was happening to the whales/whalers untill watching this show perticulary the part where the Japs shot the whale at that point if felt as if my stomach had droped to hear about the animals being killed and watching it for yourself are two different things you cannot truly understand it until you have seen it if I said "I would love to have the chance to help the whale." i would be lieing being that i would not have the motivation to do so and there are other comments stating quit worrying about the whale but the starving kids in africa i have the same reaction i know it is selfish but what can you do if you live in america and never had an opertuinity to go to such a poverty stricken area and most people who say they care truly dont or they would have done somthing then the other group the people who donate dont care as much either because they are not persnaly taking charge just giving money to say that they give when in reality they dont give jack about what happens to them anyone saying they care about a cause could care but not enough to do somthing or they say they care and dont it is easy to make up somone your not online. the main point of this is that we people as a whole dont care what happens to others and on the other hand the ones that care and are actuly making a difference bravo Steve Erwin for truly making a difference while others only dream or pretend to do (On an unrelated topic)I have read everyones comments to get their veiws their were a few that caught my attention particularly the one about the guy eating whale meat and proud of it or loving to wacth the die the context of most of them seem to be from the same person identified by the integeredy of the paragraphs etc. odviusly someone that is starved for attention and the only way he/she knows how to fill it is by bloging on here and acting like the know the world.
To the jackass who keeps posting that he or she love whale meat and trying to take the pretext of being a Jap Is clealy a dumass american kid one way to tell is that in amereica we abuse our languge to the point of no returen and if we cant speak our own languge how the hell is a god dam jap able to type on an american oriented computer by the way I love your show go steve erwin
Stop buying candles made of whale fat
I agree totally with whalewaranalyst said below. The crew are also terorists and should be stopped.Quote from wici"Japan has argued that the establishment of the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary was in contravention of the International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling (ICRW) on which the IWC is based and is therefore illegal. While there is no settlement procedure in the IWC for this type of dispute, Japan has asked the IWC to submit its case to a relevant legal body for analysis, which the IWC has refused to do.As sanctuaries only apply to commercial whaling, Japan has continued to hunt whales inside the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary because its whaling is done in accordance with a provision in the IWC charter permitting whaling for the purposes of scientific research (Japan also lodged a formal objection to the sanctuary with regard to minke whales, meaning that, in accordance with IWC rules, the terms of the sanctuary do not apply to Japan with respect to minkes)."
Hitler had the right idea how about this time instead of the jews we throught all the fucked in the head asians in camps and tourture them! they dont seem to respect life wether it be human or animal so why should we respect there right to live. it would infact let the world develope a little better since asians eat everything if they cant eat it they have no use for it.
The Captain is being negligent by endangering his crew, NO ship captain would ever do that. Let the governments handle it and save the crew and whales. I've sailed the Atlantic and Pacific and the crew and ship is the captain's responsibility. He should be held liable for any incident at sea. Seems that what he is doing is sort of a terroristic threat on other sea going ships! DON'T tarnish the name of Steve Irwin. Ray in Texas.
they should look at paint ball cannons to shoot 2000 round of acid paint balls over the nets to get to the whales being cut up and the crew are a bunch of pussy
they need more ship out there to help them save the whales
While the cause is good, the methods are a bit ridiculous. I for one have witnessed Greenpeace in action, circa 1980/1990s. The so called Captain of this vessel is going to get those band of idealistic but naive crusaders killed out there, and seemingly doesn't care! I quit watching the show early on but not because I disagree with the underlying mission statement, but from the very first episode, I couldn't bear to watch the totally inept seamanship and risk to human life because of it. It is one thing to operate at sea, which carries inherent risk, but to do so with zero experience and care for those who are put in harms way in such a careless manner for often little or no return - it just flies in the face of any sense of professional risk analysis by competent people. Insult to injury from the further lack of basic leadership skill by any of the "responsible" parties on that vessel. I caught the show by accident last night (icebergs and they lost RHIB again). Again, I'm struck that the only thing this show highlights is the massively stupid decisions based on zero seafaring or maritime common sense, and Animal Planet makes it even more ludicrous with editing, I guess to try to eek out some sort of intense drama. All they do is further highlight the stupidity, lack of any real leadership, and just a serious hazard to life and vessel. Losing the RHIB (again) which should of never been launched in the first place, then nearly getting locked in the ice field. Where's the Captain as his stupid decisions put people's lives at risk? In his warm cabin, with his head buried in the sand! It is not because he trusts his bridge team because they are vastly experienced ship handlers. Uh... no, he's completely out of his depth and should stay in the kitchen on land making rancid butter bombs, and leave the seafaring to those who know how to do it, aggravated further with the additional perils of the Southern Ocean. Learning on the fly is not the way to go here guys. Anyway, Animal Planet, you really missed the mark and keep missing it with this misguided show. When your ridiculous "Captain" stands around with his mouth agape during an emergency of human life due to his own stupid orders, frozen with indecision about what to do next, there will be hell to pay. I had to turn off the tv when he put those guys in the hold to wait for an iceberg to puncture the hull. No communication with the bridge, no damage control equipment to be seen; this ship and "crew" are vastly unprepared for even basic emergencies and apparently have no equipment to do anything even if they knew what to do... not to mention this particular vessel has no business operating in the Southern Ocean, and the Captain even admitted that! What a negligent piece of shit! Somebody will be held legally negligent, I hope, and I just don't see how the Australian Government can let these people out of the harbor after watching even 1 show.
Gosh, they made it out of the ice field by sheer luck and a change in wind direction. The 1st Mate, Brown, is a real bone head. The fact he's continually supported by the Captain, in such a quasi-military manner, smacks in the face of Brown's comment that he's anti-military - yet he demands recognition and respect in such a military manner. The only thing that's missing is for him to be relieved of duty and sent home, which would happen in the military following a few of the insane things he's done and said. You ought to let that ex-Navy lady have more of a say instead of side-lining her effort to organize things properly. Maybe not exactly properly but at least she's making some sense and trying to prepare the crew to carry out their "job" more effectively and moreover, SAFELY! I can't bear to watch, but accidently caught a re-run again last night, and was so relieved they made it out of the ice but the continuing dysfunction is heart breaking.
I love whales so much! i cant stand people who abuse animals. There is no need for that. im going to change the world one day and just save the whales there amazing animals. the people who sbuse animals arent human it makes them feel good. there is no need for people in the world like that.

From Dianne. I have read many of the comments listed. Many of them look like they came from elementry school age children. I have watched the shows for the last season and I wish my health was good enough that I could volunteer to go on one of the missions. The idea of saving the whales is wonderful, but I get so frustrated when the crew are not allowed to do more than throw things at the whaling ships. I was impressed when the Steve Irwin got between the mother ship and the whaling ship, but I was so angry that they still were able to load the dead whale. Seeing the whales be tortured and killed broke my heart and I couldn't watch it anymore. I support what the Captain and Crew are doing, but, as 1 of the comments said, 1 ship isn't going to make a huge impact on the whalers. God Bless you for what you are doing.FYI to whalewaranalyst-there are people in many inner cities fighting for the kids and families.
people that had some rude comments about animals go away.o and the pissed off person if you think humans are more important why are you on this wedsite if you think its crappy?. makes no sents. the person that said he loves wwhale meat your a sick mother fucker! your not even human. o and there not just big fish you asshole there more then that and i hope you relize your the idoit! and the other pissed off person that said you are wasting your time on stupid whales again why you on the wedsite just go away your a fucker! god people that dont care for animals why you on the wedsite your wasting your time because you dont care for anything or anyone! thats all i wanted to say take care of animals! because i know i will because im a good person. p.s. the people that dont care about animals go on youtube and then you could know what they do to animals. assholes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Sea Shepherds are doing a awesome job, no1 has ever succeded in what they did this season.Sea Shepherds can't be stopped, they have the will to save the sea and the whales! Goodluck to u guys on the ship !
i agree with the animal lover!!! u guys can suk it ur fags and need to go to hell... one day in hell a whale is gonna kill u and then shove ur head in its over sized ass! i swear u japenese basstards need to get some fukin help.!!! u eat some salad, get a date and then get a fukin life u low ass losers! damn i hate people like you!!!!fuk ur mom.......OH WIAT....U ALREADY DID THAT U HOE!
wow your nasty!
your mean! you go jordan love ya!
Keep up the Good work SEA SHEPHERDS AND THE CREW OF MR PAUL WATSON. from my heart i would like to THANK YOU for the great job you doing to save our whales and GOD will be with all of you ALWAYS and keep you safe. I would like to make a comment to Mr Paul Watson, there is any way that the Pilot on the helicopter can release that uric Acid direct on the Japanese Ship ? I believe that will be good if the pilot can do that, Because he will have a better view from the sky then from the ship. I will suggest that the pilot try that move on the Japanese fleet and focus on the harpoon and the back of the ship were the whales are being pulled inside the ship.. THIS NEXT COMMENT IF FOR THOSE PEOPLE THAT HAS NO HEART FOR INNOCENT ANIMALS. WHY ARE YOU ON THIS SITE ????? ... THE WAY YOU TALK AND FEEL ABOUT INNOCENT WHALES YOU SHOULD BE SHAMED ABOUT YOUR SELF, YOU LOW LIFE HUMAN BEINGS.. HOW WILL YOU FEEL AND ACT IF YOU FEEL THAT SHARP HARPOON GETTING DEEP INTO YOU BODY ????? I WILL BE THE FIRST ONE TO AIM THAT SHARP HARPOON TO YOU HEARTS AND PULL THE TRIGGER THEN YOU WILL SEE HOW U FEEL AND ACT TOWARDS WHALES. Again, I would like to THANK the Sea Shepherd and the crew on board and God be with you always ... GREAT JOB GUYS .. LOVE YOU ALL
Come on u have 2 go 4 the harpoons! disable them somehow like use a chainsaw and cut it up! then they CANT kill any whales even if they found one!!
ashamed of my canadian govermentpaul as a canadian started at 11 years of age,i love every animal fair is fair,i believe the indians taking one a year is fair as is there custom before we came here they also use eveery bit of it.as a mother i teach my kids where food comes from not the store field waters all of it.while paul was fighting at 11 i at the same age thought i would be in jail for murder, as cats were missing in our area my cat would never get caught she hated everryone but me slept with me only ate if i was there,until i walked down the lane behind the church to find my baby hung and dipped in paint,at 49 it still wakes me, i found the twins that were doing it and what i did was worse then what paul is doing.i never seen a whale close till last year took my breath away.then i seen them harpon 3 in one show.i cried so hard till no tears were left just anger.what a loop hole research.well its time we as humans speak up call your goverment donate so they have money to get a ship as good as theres.i am sorry to say this but you cannot trust the japs look what there doing seems like pearl harbour all over again.if i could get to the sea sheaperd ship i would be on every tour they do.the crew is good they were right not to use the anchor if it was thrown back they would die in the cold water.why are no goverments helping makes them look like cowards.take that dutch flag down and become a pirate ship high seas fair game. then watch them run.to every member on that ship god bless you.and make he sail with you and keep you all safe what heros to risk your life for something most people could carealess about.i will now go sign up to join this fight,stay safe all great to see you all writing with support i am sure when there down and read these post it helps.god bless all peace to all
IN RESPONCE TO Franky ( New York City / Malta )from ashamed of my canadian goverment...Please understand those who do not care for all gods animals are souless so both you and i know where there going..the idea of using the acid from the air awsome, those who could careless about the whales also carealess about there own life, if they did they would look around the world or the citys they live in and she all the humans killed daily,could be one of there loved ones one day.f--k maybe they will be attacked by a hungry animal.when we take all the land and live with the animals as one.every animal knows the weak to kill fastest.guest that would be the whale haters as they are the morons not the crew or paul..they all must feel homeless people should be killed as well,SO TO YOU HATERS IN MY NANAS WORDS I SAYDO NOT FLY IN GODS FACE UNLESS YOU WANT TO SEE HIS POWERS..HARPONS DONÈT HURT WOUNDER HOW JESUS FELT WITH NAILS HAMMERED IN HIS BODY YOU MIGHT BE NEXT IT DOES NOT SAY HOW YOUR LIFE WILL END BUT REMEMBER IT WILL.AND ONLY GOD WILL JUDGE YOU.GOD BLESS ALL THE PEOPLE WHO CARE AS THOSE I HAVE NO FEAR OF THOSE THAT DO NOT CARE ARE THE ONES WE AS HUMANS SHOULD FEAR...
You do a wery nice thing for our whales, keep do that..Sweden sends regards...
I can not believe what I just finished watching...I still can't breathe. This is my first time watching your documentary and I am just blown away. You are all amazing for what you are doing to risk everything to help to stop the slaughter of the whales. To watch a group of whales run down like animals then harponed, and shot to death somehow is not for research. It is very clear now thanks to your program and the people of Sea Wars to capture the video that will open the eyes of everyone internationally, to stop these butchers. They may be a fish to you out there but not to me. This is murder in all senses of the word and it is life changing to see it live. What a horrible death for all three of the whales. I do hope that this group of yours will find ways to stop the nets etc..to stop this cruelity. There must be more that you can do. We have to. I will find a way to get involved in this great cause and I applaud you for helping to save the whales.Proudly in support,Kim CyrWild Life Photographer
i think the crew needto harden up and the capten of the ship is great and wot the crew members are doing is fantastic saving the whales and the guys and girls are doind great job but i think they should ram that ship up the the slip way and that would stop the whales getting pulled up and i want to know how to become a crew member cause i am xarmy and i would show them wot hard man means and get them to a better job and i have ideas to stop the ship if was captain or crew member
first off you japs tosers on this page uz are a buch off no good sons of ......... ...... ........ and if that was uz that was getting pulled out of there i would laugh and jump on yur head so dont buy eny whale meat
i have been saving whale with ma dad for years and we have stop people killing whales uzing hard way buy raming the ship right where it hurts and uzing weapons wot hard men uz
why dont uzs japs get to fuck and go bk to yur country and kill yur own fish and leave the whales alone yous fuckin cunts so fuck all yous japs and stick tht up yur shit pipes uz brown ringers
come on people stand up against people eating whale meat and the japs on this page come on people stand up and be counted
WHALE WARS IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!! I THINK THE CREW MEMBERS ARE WORKING RELY HARD TO TRY TO SAVE THE WHALES.ALSO THE CAPTIN IS TRYING RELLY HARD TO MANGE ALL OF THAT :) <3
hi people i htink the crew members need a faster boat and need to use energy to stop these japs cause the japs are laughing at us and rumping it in our faces so i think they should ram tht boat up the japs arse and tht would stop the japs putting the whales up the slip way
yes aswell as the crew want to do battle with japs the captain cant make eny choices when it come to matter but the crew should run the ship cause the crew knows wot they want to do whenits time to fight and tuesday coming up the crew use the ship to go between the killing boat and the mother ship keep watcin and hope all u peoaple how love whales keep standing up to these japs cause i am not stand down to these people
i think the crew done fantasic on tuesdays nite whalewars when they ram the ship against the japs boat and when they got bk to home they where police there and the japs made claims against the crew and the japs will get away with killing whales and claims against the crew so if eny one thinks the japs will get away with lets stand against them NOW
I LOVE YOU GUYS! AFTER BASKETBALL PRACTICE EVERY FRIDAY LAST YEAR I'D RUSH MY MOM TO DRIVE HOME SO I COULD SEE YOUR SHOW. I WAS LITERALLY CRYING WHEN I HEARD THAT YOUR SHOW CANCELLED OUT. MY EMAILS REGGIBOP3@HOTMAIL.COM PLEASE EMAIL ME. LOVE YOU GUYS, KEPEP ON FIGHTING! -REGAN CARRIERE

OMG i love whale wars i watch it everytime its on!! i havent seen it on in a while which makes me mad 'cause its my favorite show, and evreyone thinks it wont come on anymore, but i think it will. I think that what paul is doing is so awsome because someone has to fight for them. Between global warming and those cruel japenese peeps are doing the whales are probably in a tight spot. anyways i think whale wars is so awsome!!!!! I LOVE WHALE WARS!!! IT ROCKS MY SOCKS!!!!!
Again whale wars is so awsome and from what ive tiped above this one shows my feelings for what paul watson is doing. and for peeps that are saying paul watson stinks think about it does he stink for trying to save something inicint that never did anything to us. he is doing a lot more than u will ever do so keep your coments to yourself!!!!!!!! if u see a signature that says WHALE WARS ROCKS MY SOCKS!!! remember its me!!! WHALE WARS ROCKS MY SOCKS!!!
This post is not to take away from the plite of the whales. It is to inform others that do actually care and are willing to make a difference. Denmark is involved in a shameful practice. The sea is stained in red and currently it's not because of the climate effects of nature.It's because of the cruelty that the human beings (civilized human) kill hundreds of the famous and intelligent Calderon dolphins. This happens every year in Feroe Island in Denmark. In this slaughter the main participants are young teens.WHY? A celebration, to show that they are adults and mature!In this big celebration, nothing is missing for the fun. Everyone is participating in one way or the other, killing or looking at the cruelty “supporting like a spectator”Is it necessary to mention that the dolphin calderon, like all the other species of dolphins, it’s near extinction and they get near men to play and interact. In a way of PURE friendship.They don’t die instantly; they are cut 1, 2 or 3 times with thick hooks. And at that time the dolphins produce a grim cry like that of a new born child.But he suffers and there’s no compassion while this magnificent creature slowly dies in its own blood.Its enough!We will send this mail until this email arrives in any association defending the animals, we won’t only read. That would make us accomplices, viewers.Take care of the world, it is your home!
I have now watched close to a dozen episodes of this mockery I loosely call a reality show. I just cant stop watching the humorous acts that these crazy liberals call conservation. I mostly watch because I know very little about the situation at hand. I must say that after watching that I would probly classify the men and women on the Sea Shepard just one level below Pirates. At least Pirates have a somewhat attainable goal. Whoever the foolhearted millionaire is that pumps the money in to keep this fleet of boats and aircraft afloat, he should be sat down and possibly talked to about redirecting some funds into something a bit more worthwhile for the world.
I hate what the Japanese people are doing!!!! They need to leave these poor innocent animals alone. They don't hurt anyone they just want to be free and live a long life in the ocean. What you guys are doing is well worth it try to keep up the good work. I support you all 1,000%. It really has to be hard to see them kill a whale right infront of you, but you all keep your heads held high and keep upi the great work.
Does any know if whale taste good. I would like to try some. I wonder what a BBQ whale steak taste like i bet its good
Sauve as baleias!!!
be smart Americans and dont but from the countries who hunt.
be smart American, and do not buy from countries who hunt whales
i like what people have been saying about japs i hate them so much cause what they doing to these whales and these whales have done nothing to nobody they are swimming away in the ocean being happy and doing what whale do till the fuck japs come alone and fuckin kill them these are fuckin sick people no wunder the american blue the fucker up in vetinam war and that why these fucker are doing this for pay back for what the american did to them that my say in this matter so for what i care these japs can get to fuck or fuckin did and if there are eny japs on this page drop dead you uz fuckin cunts and peoples on this page whale wars is coming back on discovery channel this years or next years by just to let uz known by the way
i think the whole fleet should start decusing about new tactics for the next campaign so when the time comes they will be prepaired..like for example a bag full of butter acid mounted to the helicopter so the helicopter can get above the ship and drop all that raw butter acid right on the dead whales so the meat will be ruined..since the japanese now has netting on the sides of the boat to prevent that from throwing it on there decks.it can be more accurite dropped from above their heads by the helicopter
I think some of the people in this blog who say the people from SSCS make stupid decisions or whatever had made the same mistakes in these situations. I'm glad there are people out there to save the whales. this is better than no one would stop the japanese. they have cut their quota in half the last 3 years, no one should say it doesn't work.
Look, I do not support the killing of whales, but the way the sea shepherds are handling the situation is ridiculous. The japs are overed in whale guts and blood- do they really think that throwing nasty butter on them will scare them into stopping?! The japs should go into some other business, and the sea shepherd hippies should cool it.
The Sea Shepherds are complete idiots. If they weren't on tv, they could do whatever they wanted (cannons, guns, wepons, etc.) and never get caught! But they just HAD to go put themselves on tv, and now cannot do anything worthwhile to stop the damn japs and their brutal slaughterings. Whales are free creatures, and should be left as such. they are NOT cows! we do not eat them in cheeseburgers every day! They are wild creatures, and neither side of this story is right. The japs should stop killing the whales, and the sea shepherds should just go back to land and eat their hearts out.
i love u guys u rocand stupid japnese say there hurt or something the big pusses i wish i was there to help.:)
thats what he gets for being a pussy he should have know that you cant throw stuff at someone elses ship and they arent gonna throw stuff back or shoot at you....he shoulda died
i think that the japanese should stop whaling because they are @#%$#& and the should suck my #&%
THANK YOU!! Thank you for trying to stop the Japanesse from killing these beautiful Whales! You are all going a great job! I appreciate all that you are doing and I know the Whales feel the same way! Be safe out there!
i love marine life and whales are cool.what do the japanese think what happens when there are no more whales?i guess the japanese all starve.
Hi my name is Billy. I think what your doing is great. It shows that you give a shit about our world and the important animals that live in it. If it was up to me I'd nuke em."The Japs". Don't give up! Good Luck
To Capt. Watson, I just want to say that your a damn good captain. You can always pull a trick out of your sleeve. I'll be leaving comments offten. My name is Billy. I'd like to give you some ideas that may be more effective to the "Japs". My grandfather fought them basterds in WWII,on the USS BlackHawk and we won. I have no doubt we can do it again! Have you heard of "Sticky Smoke Bombs"? When they land on the deck it breaks and super glues its self to where it lands, and slowly releases smoke. I don't know if they have it or not but that would be nice with the stink bombs. Because they will be unable to remove it from the deck. = more damage!
to sea Shepherd crew,i totally disagree what Ur doing i men since you've been trailing the Japanese fleets you have accomplished nothing. the Japanese fleet is one step ahead of you. why doesn't anybody go after crabbers, draggers who pull in a lot of all types of fish, if i had the opportunity to join the Japanese fleet i would do it in a heartbeat,.. you would not get in my way of killing whales, i bet paul watson eats some form of meat,fish, i hope the Japanese fleet kills as many whale as there allowed too, and i hope the blow a hole in Ur old outdated ship and sink it while the whole crew on board. i only watch whale wars cause i wanna see sea Shepard get defeated to the fullest. i hope bob barker, and the sea Shepard sink to the bottom of the ocean, GOOD LUCK TO THE JAPANESE WHALING FLEET, KILL WHALES
well if you go to www.icrwhale.org they act like is all research when it is just for money they don't give a hoot about the whales they invest more in prossing whales then researching
i think thattwhat you guys are doing is amazzing you are saveing so many whale lifes and i say it is sad that the japaese dont even care about what tthey are dooing they are killing an amazzing animal that is so magnifisant!! and paul if you read this you rock dude amazzing thing you are doing!!!
i just looked up the website that the nishumara has on a banner on their killing ship and it is actually a whale watching schedules and migration patterns...Damn Nips why in the hell are they using our websites for their killing? We need to stop all websites that give the information about our marine life...
the japs have a website posted on their ship on the back of the ship on a banner www.ICRWhales.com
I would love to join your crew and to be apart of the saving of whales...I will give my life for whales at any cost...TY Steve Irwin crew... YOU ROCK
I LOVE WHALE WARS what you are doing is great and the japanese are just wrong why do you think its ok to kill whales why because its NOT i mean how do you sleep with your self at night why don't you think just once what if i were a whale i do not think i would like to be shot in the back then killed i would want to live a long life with adventures not to die at 5 or something and to lie how did your mother raise you because it's obvious she did not do a good job or your just messed up in the head and do not know how to listen i could believe that but they should just shut up is all they say is it's for research what kind taste testing well FYI we know what your doing so take it how it is so when will you wake up and get a life carve jade or i hear pottery is fun try that but stay away from of the whales!!>:( keep going whale wars i know you can stop the what ever there called but yup keep going and help those whales!!!!!!! <3 if i were older i would beg to be on that ship:)
oh my gosh you guys stink at your jobs i just watched an episode and they killed four whales and you guys didn't do anything.
i think that they r doing an excellent job! :)
If we can't put a stop to the killing of whales, we as a species, ultimately will fail. This is murder. I continue to be dumbfounded by the actions of the Japanese. The Sea Shepherds vs the Japanese whaling fleet is truly a story of 'David and Goliath'. We, as humans, need to do what we can to protect all life on this planet. Thank you Sea Shepherds for all that you do. Know that you have an army of support behind you.
why dont they just drop that acid stuff in those bottles from their helicopter onto the Japanese? drop one of those thing in the water that tangle up the propellers in a boat, but do it to the factory ship? thats how you can stop them. they wont be able to afford to keep their boats if u drop acid from a helicopter on them all the time and u can make their ship not move.
i think the japanese whaling boat should be at the bottom of the ocean for what they are doing to those whales. Go Bob Barker and Ady Gil!
Saw some of the suggested tactics left here where used this season.Lasers on the Andy Gil.Can not wait to see what else was used.PS Word Verification not working so well still.Maybe a line runner off the side of the boats next season to extend the reach of the prop line.If the Steve Irwin left port early enough next season it could idle at sea before taking off to chase the fleet or take off and return a couple of times to throw them off.How many times can they fly over and track? Who knows but it can not be cheep to do.
Me and my Father made a facebook to help stop killing the whales..i want the help stop killing the whales, and im pretty sure u all do too. Please join mine and my dads group on facebook if we have a lot of people we could hopefully change it if u have a facebook please look up: stop killing the whales like in whale wars they need our help!! Thank You and the whales will too
Ok.... What the hell is wrong with all you whales lovin hippies. KILL ALL THE WHALES. go jap's
Fantastic! I was gonna write a comment regarding using a large "sling-shot" or one of those "on the shoulder rocket guns" to get the bottles you've been throwing by hand to better hit your targets, whether from the Steve Irwin or the small boats I was thinking would be much more efficient, however, I just saw a show using both of those. I still think a "sling-shot" on some sort of a pivot stand would greatly help out the small boats as well...I highly commend all of you volunteers; you are all greatly appreciated. And for those of us who cannot be there, thank all of you for what you're taking part in... Sincerely, Bonnie M Daniels (email@example.com) 06-20-2010
I hope your work will get the laws changed and I wish I could help I am too unhealthy to go to sea but would love to suport you any way I can !!!! Save the whale and all sea animals they don't harm us why should we harm them!!!!Pls email me if there is anyway I can help from land !!firstname.lastname@example.org
I cannot believe this...I just typed a 3 page respose and got knocked off the net...here it is in a nut shell/ I am a stay at home mom of a child with Downsyndrome...not a problem...the problem is I cant get my head around anything but her and TV...and when Whale Wars came on...I dont need a DVD set.. I watch every episode no matter what...I am so pissed that this law is up for change about Whaling! I typed a nice letter to the President letting him no we need to NOT SUPPORT the change...I dont know..its a hell of a thing AMERICA "LAND OF THE FREE" upto and including the WHALES!!! Leave em alone.....
What you are doing certainly has a very good intention but if I ran my business the way you run the Sea Shepard I would be out of business. It almost like Abbot and Costello is manning the ship. You can't even lower the smaller boat without making serious errors. Even the Bob Barker was stopped because someone turned off the fuel. I hope the show is only showing the problems and errors you make and that you can actually run the ship better than what is shown/
I wish I could join you guys on the Steve Irwin so much! Without whales, eventually all of the animals on Earth will become extinct because of the lack of an important animal of the food chain. It's cruel what the Japanese are doing. They must be heartless to kill majestic creatures like whales. They're the reason for future whale extinction!
I have been a life long conservationist and while I detest the Japs for killing whales it is a patern of dishonor that stretches back to the execution of American POW's in WW 2. This is a people without honor that charges the Sea Sheppards repeatedly then warns them against approuching the Jap vessel. The way to stop this slaughter is to commission a international armed enforcement of the ban on wailing. Sink the bastards when they intrude on protected waters and international law violation and they will stop coming. As much as it angers me for these whales to be killed in the name of science I also must comment that the captain of the Steve Irwin is a moron that puts his crew and vessel in situations of harm for his own promosion. Change your tactics idiot you do not ram a vessel and endanger your crew and ship. A captains first and formost responcibility is to his ship and crew, if you don't get that you should not be behind the helm. The captain of the Steve Irwin is also too idecisive to provide protection for the whales and safety to the crew he is a danger at sea that will result in the loss of ship or crew or both eventually as well as the possibility of other ships and crews being lost as a direct result of his actions. The damage to the Adi Gal was a mistake made by that captain and his disrespect for his small craft which endangered his crew in which his certification should be stripped. The boarding of vessel is a violation of international law and if they were stupid enough to do it they should be glad that a piracy charge was not added or that this man was considered a terrorist. I commend your efforts but there are rules you may not violate reguardless of your opinion.
crazytaz you are a fucking idiot we fought the nips in WW2 not Vietnam. Ok folks I have some issues. First the Steve Erwin needs to be beached for the safety of the crew the captain needs to be prosecuted for reckless endangerment and for just being an idiot in general. I love to hear all you bunny huggers on here talk shit. I am a hunter and a cosevationist. While I do think the nips need to pay for thier crimes and the killing of whales, you bunnie huggers would not know the first thing about conservation if it bit you in the ass. Lets examine this for a moment P.E.T.A exucuted 97% of the animals taken in by them last year and many members have been charged with the illegal dumping of the euthanized carcasses. Another group were arrested at P.E.T.A. headquarters for dog napping a mans hunting dog and taking it to headquarters. The H.S.U.S reguardless of all the cute pictures of animals they claim to rescue do not own support or operate one single animal sheltyer in the U.S. Animals are not skinned alive or running around with out skin reguardless of what these fraudulent organizations propiganda says. Cultures that harvest seals have been living this way from before your great great great great grandfather had the slightest inclination or itch in his pants that created what you call your ancestors. Harvest and conservation is a fact of life as well as is the fact that tofu taste like shit. Get a life get a job and leave people to live as they choose not as you would have them live. Death to the nip whalers and the pirates on the southern oceans. You are all breaking international law and you deserve to meet the same fate as the Titanic. Animal Planet should be ashamed to give the sea shepperds any kind of publicity or recognition.
I think there are a lot of stuff i agree with, and a lot i don't. 1) THEY ARE DOING AN AWSOME JOB!! :) 2) Their tactics could be a little more aggressive....but u have to consider that these are people who DONT WANT TO HARM ANYONE! including the jap. 3) You ALL should consider the fact that they have been able to cut the jap whaling industry by HALF...the jap kill almost 1 thousand whales a year in Antarctica, 1 whale can be as much as 1 million dollars...and so for them to cut whaling in half is HUGE!! which means, money lost for jap, and thats what their trying to do. because as soon the jap lose money, their industry goes DOWN!!! :) 4) I LOVE THE SHOW WHALE WARS, I LOVE THE SEA SHEPHERDS THAT ARE DOWN THEIR, AND I HOPE TO BE ONE, ONE DAY!! :) 5) Although the sooner you shut them down, the better :)-Olivia P.S- Peter Hammarstedt your AWSOME!!! i always agree with your decisions :) <3
I would like to know about a show in regards to long line fishing..yes it kills hundreds of thousands of animals , fish etc.. however , in this scene .. episode 22 filmed or at least released in june / 2010 there was a seal dragged up onto the boat ..from being hooked on the line .. it wasnt dead.. it was crying out in pain .. did or do any one or all persons save at least the seal ..that at that time of filming was NOT dead??
Hey sea shepherd team.. I think it's awesome what y'all are doing to save whales but i just watched the "crossing danger" episode and I'm just confused on why thesteve Irwin ship is running away from the Japanese ship.. Bomb the bitches!!! Seriously they are KILLING WHALES!! Use paintball guns, haha sneezing or laughing powder bombs, mud bombs, tennis balls, baseballs, sewer water bombs, apples, oranges, butter bombs, grapes.. Anything just stop themmmmmm!!
hi im a 17 year old kid and i like to watch ur show all the time. im an animal lover and think it is great what you are doing. ive have hope of being part of ur crew.ive always wondered why u dont use the helicopter more like to use it to fly over the ship and drop the stuuff you guys throw at them this way u can go father distance?
i am hugely into the whale wars. even though i'm only 12, i wish that i was on the show. i would do anything to be helping them save the whales. i would even be the cook helper or something. also i am a huge animal lover
I have a heart for animals<3 and when i see a whale being killed on whale wars its sad. i think what you guys/& girls are doing is amazing to stop the Japanese from killing the whales<3 i love the show whale wars and it brings inspiration to my heart<3 Without people like you on this earth, there would be no whales really.The Japanese are cruel and said they were getting samples xD. You don't need a whole whale for a sample.Please keep doing what your doing to try to save the whales<3.
I think you should turn your helicopter into an attack helicopter, ex. throw stink bombs from the attack helicopter so you can get a better shot!! And you should use the potato cannon from the helicopter, that would really hurt!
i think u all are the best i would love to do wut ur doin if u need more people let me know at email@example.com i will help
I am someone that has more than 25 years studying whale's off the New England coast.I am a certified scuba diver, A merchant Marine(Quartermaster),A Fireman and an have 10 years Experienced in Aqua Culture.I have worked on boat's and the ocean my entire life.I have lot's of large and small boat handling experience,outboard and inboard mechanics as well.If i can help with This Tragedy.Please Contact Me ,Thanks, Joe.
I think everybody that are sayin hate comments about the sea sheapard r fuckin pussys cause at least Paul Watson and everyone else on those ships had balls to go out there fok up the japs So wat now
This is what they need for next yeat, For Sale: 302' Custom Expedition Vesselhttp://commercial.apolloduck.com/display.phtml?aid=144356
u guys are all tv whores leave the whalers alone they're doin their job u are all a bunch of pussies and dont deserve to be on tv. u guys also never think anything through. u guys sit around all year cryin about the whales dying rather then thinking of a strategy to launch your small boats i couldnt stop laughing when the first one flipped over. keep throwin stinky butter at japs that are covered in whale guts all day i'm sure that really makes them want to stop.
You guys are retarded and I saw an episode where the Captain "got shot" bullshit. the whole episode I was hoping for someone to get shot by a harpoon
I think what your trying to do in saving the Whales is commendable. With that said and watching every show, it has turned into a 3 ring Circus. The dumb things that some of you people do. If the Abby Gail had fuel, why didn't it move out of the way. Not good Captain Skills. Paul, you need to surround yourself with more experienced people. The one show where you let someone else go through the ice was ridiculous, you nearly lost the only ship you had. Are you watching these tapes? You need to step up and clean house or more stupid things will happen.
japan can go to hell ! they should have never intentionally ran into the adi gil.... i think we should have called someone in to take care of the japanese ships! its bad how the take the whales like they do ! THEY NEED TO BE STOPPED!! great job SEA SHEPERD CREW and sorry about the adi gil!!!
are u kidding me? your driving a small boat with the intentions of illegaly harassing their fully crewed ship out there trying to make a living did you really not think something like this was going to happen? all you bunch of hippy tree huggers need to go back to land and get a real job like the rest of us.
How do you get involved?
Has anyone ever figured out how many whales of each species exist in the ocean and whether the killing of a 1000 Minke whales, by Norwiegan or Japanese whalers, endangers the population? I think it would be important to determine the current population and the breeding rate per year of these hunted whales to determine if a 1000 whale quota per annum is OK. We do that with other land base animals. The difficulty is in the deep oceans, which no one has truly fully explored, there is no count of whales or for that matter, any other marine animals population and breeding rate. Before we condemn the Japanese or any other whaling nation, we need to get the hard facts. The oceanic population is a hard fact to gather. We know more about how many stars exist in our galaxy than things that exist right here on our own planet. Food for thought.
This is a follow up on my whale population comment. If man had invested as much $ into expploring our oceans as we have space, we would have had the technology to stop the BP leak a long long time ago. We would have deep dive manned vehicles that could operate with robotic arms and possibly seal that leak long ago or at leak get a better human-eye on-site view of the extent of the problem. And again we know how many deer, caribou, elk, lions, tigers, etc exist on land and we know how to control these populations when they get out-of-control by controlled kills. We need to be just as savvy about our oceanic denizens. More food for thought.
i just started to watch this show yesterday and I'm already on the second season. i think what y'all are doing is awesome but Peter Brown is a dumb ass dude. He thinks he is first mate and knows his shit but in the past season and episodes I've watched, every time he gets behind the wheel of the boat every body's hearts are in their throats because he really is not that good. And he is such a dick because he doesn't know shit and just needs to stop talking. love the show keep doing an awesome job.
I love watching your show, I was wondering maybe you should throw stuff out of the Helicopter! Then all you really need to do is drop it! Then you wouldn't be hit by the cannons, and the Japanese crew wouldn't be able to throw stuff high enough back at the Helicopter! Just an idea.
Me and my sister are whale war junkies! we both send Pete our deepest apologies for the loss of the Ady Gil and good luck in the future..... and i heard hes not doing aby anti-whaling activities next year.... so i also send my apologies to the sea sheperds for the loss of a determined and courageous crew-member..... he was truly great..... :)
I only watch Whale Wars to laugh, I get pure enjoyment in watching the Sea Shepard people fail. I hope the Jap's run over all their boats. Please keep failing and continue to be the dumbest human beings on earth so the show can go on. I hope the people that fund this operation do not watch the show because if they do I am sure they will stop giving them money. This is a perfect example of why liberal tree huggers should not be allowed to enter the military......god these people are fu**ing retards.
Considering the dwindeling population of whales and the fact that some of them are on the "endangered list" I think hunting them is morally wrong. Why are the japs allowed to hunt 50 humpbacks a year when there are so few left in the first place? If it's international waters, then every nation should have to agree to go out and slaughter them all- if not, then they shouldn't hunt them at all. And as for the B.S.claim of "research", Americans conduct research on animals all the time without killing them- it's called "catch and release"...even my 6year old knows how to catch and release a fish, why can't the japs figure it out?
Not only is whaling wrong it is just unhuman. The Japanese really need to realize that by killing whales there just killing themselves. I highly doubt that they are "collecting research" and "weighing stomach contents" I think we all no that they aren't doing that. But i just started watching whale wars and i have to say that it is the best show no campaign i have ever seen. I one day want to join the fight against whaling with the Sea Sheperds. Thanks guys for your bravery and your commiting to fight against whaling.
Its a shame that the United Nations can't do anything about this whaling I mean its great that the Sea Shepherds are out there and a wonderful job they are doing and the person that said the Sea Shepherds are failing is propably working for BP. Tree Huggers Rock BP Sucks BP stands for bad pollution BP

Okay those last two comments by whoever are really inapropriote
You hippies are retarded!! Im all for saving the whales, but come on!! If its up to you folks to do the job, then game over. You lose!! Who was the moron that went to save the zeppelin, lowered the motor into the rocks and completely blew out the lower unit! You put two guys into the water to push it out by hand. Morons!!! Tie on to the other boat and tow it out to a safe depth. Then lower the motor and start. Boat saved!! And to that little weasel with the three hairs on your cheeks. Buy a razor. Or a pair of scissors. Hell burn that shit of with a match. I dont care. It would take 4.2 seconds to cut that crap off your face. And if i were Bob Barker i would hang my head in disgust. How much money did you pay for that P.O.S.? Price is wrong, bitches!! And you never checked its maximum speed. You got a totally useless boat with an even more useless crew. PUSSY'S!! All OF YOU!! Except for the Addy Gill. They damn near died for those fish. Those guys are the Titans. Dont make come down there. Do the job or get the hell off my friggin tele. Here's my email. firstname.lastname@example.org Want some pointers on kickin ass give me a bell.
I have an idea to get them damn whalers off.Bring a fake rocket launtcher.
Why isn't the whalers being fined or arrested for ramming the Audi Gale, or the Sea Shepard?
Hay did the Japs ever see the Star trek movie about the whales? :>
I am a die hard fan of Whale Wars. I feel you do need more ships for more support, and another Ady Gul to boot. I hope you can keep doing what you do. But, please don't let anyone get hurt, or killed for this campaign. Thanks for what you do...
i love what you guys do. Saving whales is very important. keep doing what you do best. just dont get hurt. thanks guys
Has any research been done to see if a chemical compound can be made which if injected into a whale would be harmless, but make their meat inedible? If so, would it be more productive to start injecting whales rather than trying to stop the faster and more modern ships you are up against? Whaler's would not be able to tell which whale had been injected and which had not. I believe if they killed a few "injected" whales they would give up whaling. Just a thought.
Killing whales for research! Totally ludicrous! The Japanese kill about 1000 whales a year under the guise of "research". It's for commercial purposes! They spend millions on whaling expeditions, and reap millions of dollars by selling the meat. Paul Watson and crew are the only ones actively trying to prevent this so-called "research". The rest of the world has turned a blind eye to it. And when our whales are almost gone, perhaps the world will wake up...but will it then be too late? Our ocean has a very important balanced ecological system which includes whales. Get it out of balance and we all suffer!
I have seen your show where one of the 2 anti-whaling ships almost hit the JAP whaleing ship. The paint-bottle launching weapon is awesome. If your helicopter can carry some spare weight, try to equip it with a claw to carry a large canister filled with red paint or your acid. Also, try to fit your bird with paint-bottle rockets. As a Army Ranger we come up with some real crazy stuff. Try these ideas if the helo can carry either? Godd Luck, I support you. Gell if the NAVY wasn't too busy with the current war, we'ed vote to have a USS-Colister (sub) sink all whaling ships
All I have to say is I think what you are doing is great I am currently watching and catching up I have missed like 2 shows so I wish I could be a part of this!! I wanna thank you so very much for caring for God's animals enough to take action I have been saying that I wanted to be apart of this but you gotta be pretty brave!!
HEY FIRST OFF I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT YOU GUYS ARE DOING GREAT AND HAVE DONE A LOT TO HELP THE WHALES BUT I HAVE A TRICK FOR YOU TO USE AGAINST THE JAPANESE. IF YOU GO ONLINE TO ansgear.com WHICH IS A PAINTBALL COMPANY YOU CAN RAID THE JAPANESE USING A CHEAP AND SIMPLE SETUP. PAINTBALL IS THE KEY WORD. IF YOU GET A LARGE AIR TANK, FULLY AUTOMATIC GUN AND A FAST HOPPER(THE THING THAT LOADS THE PAINTBALLS) YOU CAN RAID THE JAPANESE WHALING SHIPS! EMAIL ME IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS AT email@example.com ABOUT WHAT YOU SHOULD GET. YOU WILL PROBABLY SPEND AROUND $300 IF YOU DECIDE TO GO WITH IT. PLEASE REPLY AND KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!
i just read an article stating that the Madrid Environmental Protocol says that the enviormental protection forever and that whaleing is elligal and Australia has the athourity to stop it. So tecchnically your not aloud to whale in a protected whale enviorment.
My name is Branden Kurth and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. I am a whale lover (to say the least) and the first time i saw the title whale wars on my netflix i said to myself "someone stole my idea", so i had to watch. And now, 3 years later, as i get older(im 28)i feel the only things we have in this world is our ambition and our backbone. i own 3 business's up here in montana and my life has beeen spent building these buisiness's to someday have 10 million dollars and do exactly what Admiral Paul Watson has done, and thats buy a boat and travel to antarctica with a crew of like minded people and, God damnit, make a difference. i need to come help. I have a 6 year old daughter whom i have discussed this with in detail and she sees it in my eyes that this is serious and this is what Dad has to do and she said go. could someone please contact me with some instructions as to how a guy or gal is to go about volunteering for a campaign. thank you and keep up the good work
I think the whaling fleet has a new factory ship and is out at sea hunting while seashephard thinks they are still docked. Also they (the whalers) want the series to fail so keeping it off the iar for a year is one way to set it up to fail.
http://www.earthtimes.org/articles/news/356269,leaves-port-annual-hunt.htmlLooks like Whale Wars will have a new season after all.
not familiar with what can or how it can be done, but if they want to collect samples why cant they try to capture them alive? cruel Ba$tard$
Wounder if Japan has another factory ship in the south getting their quota while Bob and Steve take their speed boat for a cruise with the Nisshin Maru?The harpon Vesseles are getting the quota and no one is there to stop it.
hi I want to congratulate the crew of the ship, I tell you that the Lavor they are doing is very beautiful we need to cabaret to depute such children would be Chinese and there to give them in the face with a harpoon and tell truth hurts to know the pain feels a whale a whale beautiful when they are attacked, and wanted to know that I have to do to pertecene the crew I can be a good element ball I left over to defend the whales my mail is beautiful. firstname.lastname@example.org quiero felicitar a todos los tripulantes del barco,quiero decirles que la lavor que estan haciendo es muy hermosa necesitamos a cabar con esos hijos deputa chinos como quisiera estar alla para darles en la cara con un arpon y decirles duele verdad para que sepan el dolor que siente una ballena una hermosa ballena cuando ellos las atacan,y queria saber que tengo que hacer para pertecener a la tripulacion puedo ser un buen elemento me sobran bola para defender a las hermosas ballenas mi correo es. email@example.com
i think the chines need to quite killing whaleswhats going to happen when thier is no more our so called president needs to do somthing about it obma dont need to be our president someone has got to stop the killing of whales it must be a law to not kill any whales but our president obma dont care hes just in that big white house not caring we need to do somthing anout it the chines needs to quite or thier will not be no more whales at all becase of the chines it has to be a law to stop killing whales someone has to do something about this
you cant get any better then what the crew is doing to help save the whales
I give Peter Brown credit for volunteering, however, sometimes people don't pick a volunteer position that would make them effective. In the case of Peter Brown volunteering for the Sea Shepard, maybe he should have actually volunteered at some Zoo, somewhere, cleaning up after the Squirrels. He is not too bright of a guy.
I have seen nothing but the Sea Shepard violate International Law thusfar. Rather sad that they are willing to possibly kill another human to save a dead whale. They are careless and should be punished internationally for their actions. Boarding anothers vessel is piracy. Acid???? Shameful. They should ALL be in prison for their acts. I surely would not be so nice if they threw acid at my ship!!
Oh My God... maybe im streamly late on this show, but today was bmy first time watching this. witnessing heartless souls do something like that to an animal is unbelieveable.i THINK YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING... ONLY STUPID PEOPLE WOULD MAKE COMMENTS ABOUT YOUR ABILITY BEING EFFORTLESS. KEEP UP THE WORK GUYS, I ADMIRE YOU GUYS ALOT....
OMFG YOU IDIOT DID YOU NOT HERE THE NARRATOR SAY MULTIPPLE TIMES THE ACID IS NOT TOXIC. YOU ARE THE MOST RETARTED PERSON BY FAR TO POST A COMMENT....
