news_090609_1_Whale_Wars_Logo_100Captain Paul Watson and the Sea Shepherd crew featured in Whale Wars had nearly 1.2 million viewers for the Season Two premier on June 5th, 2009 on Animal Planet.  The action packed series, which covers Sea Shepherd’s previous Antarctic Whale Defense Campaign Operation Musashi to the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary, saw double digit gains from it’s first season average.

Animal Planet ranked #1 among all cable with males aged 25-54 at the 9 PM and 10 PM hours respectively (excluding movies).

“Whale Wars is one of the most exciting series in the network’s history and a terrific launch for our summer season with ten more weeks of amazing storytelling for the show’s fans,” noted Marjorie Kaplan, president and general manager of Animal Planet.

Said Captain Paul Watson, “We know that Sea Shepherd’s passion and determination to save the great whales from illegal Japanese harpoons makes for compelling television and we’re glad to see this important environmental issue becoming a part of mainstream media.”
