La campagne 2010 de Sea Shepherd a permis de sauver 528 baleines, parfois au prix d’actions musclées, comme lors de cette collision entre le Bob Barker (G) du Capitaine Paul Watson et un des bateaux harponneurs japonais (D).

Japan’s whaling fleet has revealed how much anti-whaling activists disrupted the annual hunt off Antarctica.

The ships have returned to port with just over half as many whales – 507 – as they had set out to catch.
