"We're looking at a biological holocaust of unprecedented magnitude." - Paul Watson Paul Watson has rammed fishing trawlers, sunk whaling ships, sailed boldly into Soviet waters (when the Cold War still brewed) and brazenly taunted the governments of several powerful countries. He has stood in the path of oncoming icebreakers to protect seal nurseries, and overturned the law that shielded hunters of baby seals from protest and active intervention to stop slaughter. He is the environmentalist who scathingly referred to Greenpeace, an organization he helped found, as "the Avon ladies of the environmental movement." Now he owns a submarine. Why? Paul Watson's unswerving mission is to publicize -- and stop -- the atrocities committed against the creatures who inhabit the world's oceans. His life story is one of a man with more than the courage of his convictions -- time and time again he has risked his life for his beliefs. He rammed the Sierra, a whaling vessel whose masters illegally slaughtered 25,000 whales; he sailed up to a whale processing plant in the former Soviet Union and calmly snapped photographs when confronted with armed guards; he drove a Cuban fishing boat off the Grand Banks to protect the depleted cod population and he founded the radical and confrontationalist Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, after he became disillusioned with Greenpeace tactics. Ocean Warrior is the story of Paul Watson's conservation career -- an amazing chronicle of bravery, horrifying slaughter and international intrigue. A story of passion and principles, it will not easily be forgotten by anyone who cares about the fate of our oceans -- or our planet.… (mere)

> « Ocean Warrior » La genèse de Sea Shepherd
« Ocean Warrior : La genèse de Sea Shepherd », de Paul WATSON. Dans cette réédition bienvenue d'un ouvrage paru en 1996, le capitaine Paul Watson raconte son action et celle de l'association Sea Shepherd qu'il a fondée. Le récit couvre la période 1978 – 1994. Bien sûr toujours active de nos jours, mais encore méconnue du grand public, Sea Shepherd est pourtant l'une des associations écologistes les plus intéressantes, intègres et efficaces dans le monde. Sa vocation : empêcher de nuire les baleiniers, les pêcheurs industriels utilisant des filets dérivants, les massacreurs de dauphins, de requins, et autres assassins des mers, agissant dans une relative impunité malgré des traités internationaux interdisant toutes ces pratiques. En 35 ans d'actions, Sea Shepherd n'a jamais ni blessé ni tué personne, mais ses tactiques spectaculaires lui ont régulièrement valu d'être traitée de « terroriste », à commencer par Greenpeace (!), dont Paul Watson fut pourtant un co-fondateur. Éperonnage en pleine mer, sabordage de navires à quai, campagnes médiatiques d'une grande efficacité, le tout pour des résultats on ne peut plus tangibles en faveur des cétacés et poissons en danger… le bilan de Sea Shepherd force le respect. Black-Star (S)Éditions / Sea Shepherd, 2013, 13 €. XR. --Revue S!lence, avr. 2014. … ; (en ligne),

I liked this book a lot better than the Seal Wars book. Again, sometimes Paul's attitude gets tiresome to read (and I mean him being his own biggest fan) but he really has accomplished so much in the environmental movement so it is justified horn tooting. A great read. I can easily see myself reading this again in the future. ( )
