Take advantage of a very unique and limited opportunity to buy a beautiful Sea Shepherd Fundraiser Geocoin! Our coin features our Classic and Jolly Roger logos and can be purchased in either a polished gold or antique silver finish at CoinsAndPins.com. All funds from the sale of this coin, after production costs, will be donated back to Sea Shepherd to help fund our ocean wildlife conservation efforts around the world.
These special coins are used in geocaching, a worldwide game of hiding and seeking treasure. A geocache is a waterproof container containing a log book, pencil or pen, and trade items including coins, travel bugs, etc. Geocachers (people participating in the game) can place a coin anywhere in the world, pinpoint its location using GPS technology, and then share the geocache's existence and location online. Each coin is a kind of signature item or calling card and is assigned a unique tracking ID. This allows the items to travel from geocache to geocache or to be passed amongst friends, picking up stories along the way.
Inspired by a passionate supporter of Sea Shepherd, Steve O’Neil, this coin commemorates our Founder and President Captain Paul Watson and his crew of brave and dedicated volunteers. It also serves as a reminder of our ongoing efforts in the Antarctic Ocean to prevent the Japanese whaling fleet from illegally poaching whales in the southern ocean whale sanctuary south of Australia.
Show everyone your compassion and support! Own a Sea Shepherd Geocoin today and help us keep our vessels at sea and save lives! This coin will only be sold through from July 17 through July 26, 2009. To get your own Sea Shepherd Fundraiser Geocoin during this time please visit the CoinsAndPins.com.
