Following the success of Whale Wars Season 1, which premiered in the US and Canada last fall and is currently airing internationally, Sea Shepherd looks forward to the highly anticipated second season airing Fridays at 9 PM on Animal Planet.

logo_Operation_Musashi_100This upcoming second season of Whale Wars chronicles Sea Shepherd’s mission to end illegal whaling in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary during the Whale Defense Campaign Operation Musashi. As Sea Shepherd successfully intervened in the illegal slaughter of protected and endangered cetaceans, drama escalated as the Japanese whaling fleet struggled to try to retain their profits. In the end, Sea Shepherd saved the lives of over 300 whales, but not without a fight. Show viewers will see just how aggressive the Japanese whalers are willing to get in this remote section of the world, featuring at-sea collisions, zodiac chases, high-powered water cannons, and the use of an acoustic weapon: a long-range acoustical device (LRAD) normally used by the military.

The second season promises to be a huge success and will garner international attention on Sea Shepherd’s efforts to end illegal whaling in Antarctica

Premiering in the US on Friday, June 5th on Animal Planet at 9 PM

Premiering in Canada on Wednesday, June 10th at 9 PM ET/10 PM PT on Animal Planet
