Operation Toxic Gulf, a joint research campaign by Sea Shepherd and Ocean Alliance, is in full swing in the Gulf of Mexico, so we would like to introduce you to the program, the crew and the RV Odyssey. This new video features footage from the first leg of Operation Toxic Gulf – from our launch in Key West, Florida, to our first sperm whale encounter of the campaign. Ocean Alliance CEO, Iain Kerr explains the decision to return to the Gulf for a fifth summer, with the help of Sea Shepherd, to study the continued, devastating impacts of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil disaster.
