Founded in 1977, Sea Shepherd Global is an international organization dedicated to the defence and protection of the oceans and seas. Their mission is to stop the destruction of marine ecosystems and the killing of species and thus conserve and protect the biodiversity of the world's oceans.
More specifically, Sea Shepherd Belgium organises information campaigns at stands at various animal and nature protection events in general, in schools,... They also organize small actions on a Belgian scale such as beach cleaning and offer merchandising (clothing and accessories bearing the association's logo), all the profits from which are donated for direct actions.
Indeed, Sea Shepherd Global has several boats that sail the oceans and fight to preserve marine species (sharks, dolphins, whales, turtles, fish, flora,...) by hunting, for example, illegal fishermen with local authorities, by intervening directly between marine animals and their poachers, etc.
