The Ships With A Cause

M/Y Bob Barker Docked at the International Passenger Terminal in Circular Quay, Sydney with the Harbour Bridge as its backdrop.

It was a gloomy and wet day when we arrived at the International Passenger Terminal in Circular Quay to have a tour on two ships of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. The tour which was spearheaded by the international non-profit organisation known for its cause in conserving marine wildlife globally opened its doors freely to the public. Their vessels, M/Y Bob Barker and M/Y Brigitte Bardot docked in Sydney attracted dozens of families and spectators to its educational visit of the ships’ interiors.

Being in an educational tour, such as this, inculcated in the minds of everyone, especially the young generation, the importance in preserving marine life – specifically the most endangered species of sharks, whales, sea lions and among others that are threatened by the impact on over fishing of declining marine species, illegal aquatic trade and other unlawful activities which concerns our vast seas and oceans. The mission of the organisation is highly relevant for future generations as their voluntary presence in safeguarding our marine ecosystem makes it more visible for future generations to witness the remarkable wildlife that we have today.

Although, the organization is very much around to protect our seas, they are appealing for donations and assistance to further their cause. One can help them by handing them monetary assistance through their website, www.seashepherd.org.
