To save the whales, first you have to save the people trying to save the whales...before they sink:
"The Japanese whaling fleet is 'more aggressive and more violent than ever before,' Sea Shepherd captain Paul Watson has said following a damaging collision between a whaling vessel and a protest boat.
The Federal Government has ordered an investigation into the clash, in which Sea Shepherd's $2 million protest trimaran Ady Gil had its bow sheared off in the collision with the whaling ship Shonan Maru No. 2.
Speaking to radio 3AW today, Captain Watson accused the Japanese whaling fleet of endangering lives, but said the collision wouldn’t halt Sea Shepherd’s anti-whaling activities."
