Meet and Greet with Captain Alex Cornelissen
April 29, 2013
On Monday April 29th, Sea Shepherd Jacksonville was honored to present a special event with Captain Alex Cornelissen. At Jacksonville Health and Wellness Center, who kindly donated the event space, Captain Cornelissen gave an exciting and informative lecture about his work with Sea Shepherd Conservation Society - from the campaigns opposing Canada's brutal seal hunt to his work as director of Sea Shepherd Galapagos. Alex also presented the short Sea Shepherd films Kimberley and Galapagos, and talked about the huge victory following Operation Kimberley Miinimbi. Captain Alex answered questions from an enthusiastic audience following the films. Sea Shepherd Jacksonville Coordinators Lisa Blizzard and Jennifer Mishler would like to thank Captain Alex for a wonderful event and Jacksonville Health and Wellness Center for being our hosts! Thank you to all of the Sea Shepherd supporters who came out to meet the captain and help us defend the oceans!
