    E26 - Hitman For the Kindness Club - Captain Paul Watson

    E26 - Hitman For the Kindness Club - Captain Paul Watson

    In this episode we speak with Captain Paul Watson about his latest book Hitman for the Kindness Club.  Here is a little bit about his book - Spanning 1961 to 2022, this electrifying collection of essays captures the spirit, mettle, and moxie of one of the most intrepid environmentalists of our times. Paul Watson developed an enduring passion for the wild as a youngster. This zeal propelled him on an uncharted adventure of outward exploration and inner evolution, with pivotal turning points bringing him to the realization that his life’s mission was to defend the natural world and all its inhabitants. Watson takes you along for the ride as he upends the Sierra Club, cofounds Greenpeace, establishes Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and most recently the Captain Paul Watson Foundation. His courageous, often audacious campaigns, held on every ocean and every continent, are hallmarks of his stalwart defense of Indigenous people, marine wildlife, and ecosystems worldwide. These incredible true-life stories reveal how a dedicated group of people with gumption, resourcefulness, imagination, and clarity of purpose can change the world for the better. Still active, with a new foundation and a loyal crew, Watson shares his inspirational life lessons to encourage everyone to remain hopeful and to always be kind, without reservation or exception.

    E25 - Ocean Killers Campaign - with Captain Watson and Lamya Essemlali

    E25 - Ocean Killers Campaign - with Captain Watson and Lamya Essemlali

    In today's episode of the Captain Paul Watson Foundation Podcast we will be speaking with Captain Watson and Lamya Essemlali.  Paul and Lamya will give us insight into Operation Ocean Killers, a joint campaign between the Captain Paul Watson Foundation and Sea Shepherd France against the Super Trawlers that are wiping out large schools of fish.  The Super Trawlers are enormous vessels that target Mackerel, Herring, and Blue Whiting.  These fish are important food sources for larger marine creatures like dolphins.  Because the Super Trawlers are so efficient at wiping out fish populations, dolphins have been forced to move closer to shore in search of food.  In some instances, dolphins have washed up dead on shore due to starvation.  The Super Trawlers also directly kill marine animals by trapping them in their huge nets.  This "bycatch" is largely unmonitored allowing the Super Trawlers to do as they please out at sea.  It is the goal of the Captain Paul Watson Foundation and Sea Shepherd France to bring attention to these Super Trawlers so that they can be stopped from causing further ecological damage to our planet.

    E23 - Pilot Whales Slaughtered in the Faroe Islands

    In today's episode of the Captain Paul Watson Foundation Podcast, I speak with Captain Watson about the recent grindadrap in the Faroe Islands.  About 80 to 100 pilot whales were slaughtered in the Torshavn harbor, right next to a visiting cruise ship.  Unfortunately the John Paul Dejoria was unable to make it to the harbor before the whales were beached and slaughtered by the Faroese people.  Captain Watson hopes that with the help of the on-shore volunteers we will be able save the next pod of whales or dolphins targeted.
