Board of Directors

Sea Shepherd Conservation Society's Board of Directors make all strategic short and long term decisions for the organization. Directors serve without compensation or other tangible incentives.

Ethan Wolf joined the Board of Directors of Sea Shepherd USA in June 2014. A graduate of Brandeis University in 2001 with a Bachelor’s degree in politics and sociology and a 2005 graduate of the University of District of Columbia — David A. Clarke School of Law, Ethan has more than 17 years of organizing experience for various grassroots animal protection campaigns, including the anti-fur and anti-animal experimentation campaigns.

In 2010, Ethan founded the New York City Chapter of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and has worked to build the most active Sea Shepherd chapter in the United States in fundraising and outreach events. In 2011, Ethan joined Operation Infinite Patience, Sea Shepherd's annual dolphin defense campaign in Taiji, Japan, as a Cove Guardian and rejoined the campaign in 2012 and 2013. In addition, he joined Sea Shepherd’s 2013 sea lion defense campaign at the Bonneville Dam, serving as a Dam Guardian to monitor the harassment of sea lions on the Columbia River.

Ethan has worked as a child protection attorney in New York City for the past six years.

A naturalist and expert on indigenous people, he has penned many masterpieces, among them are Never Cry Wolf , A Whale For The Killing , and Sea of Slaughter.
