Operation Sleppid Grindini

Sea Shepherd’s Pilot Whale Defense Campaign in the Faroe Islands

Each year the grind threatens the lives of hundreds of pilot whales and other dolphins...

Pilot whaleEntire pods of these magnificent animals are brutally and senselessly slaughtered in the Faroe Islands. Like the infamous drive hunts in Taiji, Japan, the grind is a blood-red stain on these otherwise pristine waters.

Sea Shepherd, the leading direct-action marine conservation organization in the world, has led the opposition to the grind since the 1980s. This year, Sea Shepherd volunteers will descend on the “Ferocious Isles” - patrolling land and sea. We will stand strong in our mission: bring the grind to a grinding halt.
