On December 16, 2016, the New York City chapter hosted the premiere of Why Just One? Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s first full length, in-house documentary. The sold-out event was Captain Paul Watson's his first New York appearance at a Sea Shepherd event since returning to the United States after living in France for approximately two years.
The evening began with a VIP reception for guests and supporters who enjoyed an intimate setting with Captain Watson present. The reception was complete with a red carpet and Jolly Roger backdrop where supporters could take photos with each other and the Captain.
Why Just One? follows the 2015 Operation Jairo Turtle Defense campaign in Costa Rica, where turtle defenders from around the world gathered to do their part to save these living dinosaurs. The campaign was named after Jairo Mora Sandoval, a Costa Rican turtle defender murdered on May 31, 2013 on Moin Beach, one of the beaches patrolled by Sea Shepherd in 2015.

From a splash of water to a smash of glass, three pictures force people to think twice before buying tickets to marine parks.
Sea Shepherd Conservation Society launched a series of images today illustrating the tragic fates met by real-life captive cetaceans.
The images come just as the holiday season begins and families are making choices about how to spend their money on entertainment. The pictures are being published to educate and deter travelers around the world from buying tickets to marine shows, swim-with-dolphin programs and other similar animal encounter experiences.
The photos, featuring a dolphin, beluga and orca, respectively, show each animal breaking the water with their backs. Drops splash around them as they land from an aerial trick. Upon closer look, the viewer will see the drops of water are, in fact, broken glass. Each visual is accompanied by text that tells the true story of the mammal in the poster.
