Sea Shepherd Celebrates 25th Anniversary of Being Banned from the International Whaling Commission Meetings

Since 1986, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society has been officially banned from attending the International Whaling Commission (IWC) annual meetings. The reason for this expulsion is that we sank half of the Icelandic whaling fleet’s vessels in Reykjavik Harbor in November of 1986. Every few years, Sea Shepherd Founder and President Captain Paul Watson sends a letter to the secretary of the IWC requesting re-instatement of our non-governmental organization (NGO) observer status at the meetings…and every time, the request is predictably rejected.
