Gojira Joins the Rest of Her Sea Shepherd Fleet
Sea Shepherd’s fast new interceptor vessel the MY Gojira arrived late afternoon on Saturday, December 4th in the port of Hobart after a near weeklong journey from her home port of Fremantle, Western Australia. Gojira was greeted by the Steve Irwin and Bob Barker vessels, the new Nancy Burnet helicopter, and a very excited group of international crewmembers anxious to begin their journey to the Southern Ocean to put an end to Japan’s illegal whaling operations.
After all vessels complete their safety training and replenish essentials, the fleet will depart Australian waters within the next few days to carry out their mission and stop whaling in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.
