Why origins is needed

Sea Shepherd Origins has been founded to strengthen the unity of Sea Shepherd entities and prevent the movement from sliding away from its core values.

It provides to the public opinion, the media and the historical and new supporters, a clear view on the original values and ethics of Sea Shepherd, and provides a better transparency on the functioning of the organisation. It is also meant to prevent any discreet recuperation of the movement by people who are not in alliance with Sea Shepherd’s original spirit and values.

Sea Shepherd Origins is an independent entity registered in France. The members of Sea Shepherd Origins are the entities that are signatories to the ethical guidelines of Sea Shepherd’s original spirit of no compromission, independance from the governments and corporations directly involved in the destruction of marine ecosystems.
