One Planet: Sea Shepherd combats illegal fishing on the high seas


  On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet series, we’ll have a conversation about Chasing the Thunder, a new documentary that chronicles the dangerous journey of a crew of two Sea Shepherd ships that sail across three oceans and travel over 10,000 miles to shut down one of the most notorious illegal poaching vessels.

For over 40 years, the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society has worked tirelessly to end the multibillion dollar illegal fishing industry in order to protect and conserve ecosystems and species.
