"We're looking at a biological holocaust of unprecedented magnitude."
- Paul Watson

Paul Watson has rammed fishing trawlers, sunk whaling ships, sailed boldly into Soviet waters (when the Cold War still brewed) and brazenly taunted the governments of several powerful countries. He has stood in the path of oncoming icebreakers to protect seal nurseries, and overturned the law that shielded hunters of baby seals from protest and active intervention to stop slaughter. He is the environmentalist who scathingly referred to Greenpeace, an organization he helped found, as "the Avon ladies of the environmental movement." Now he owns a submarine.

Why? Paul Watson's unswerving mission is to publicize -- and stop -- the atrocities committed against the creatures who inhabit the world's oceans.

His life story is one of a man with more than the courage of his convictions -- time and time again he has risked his life for his beliefs. He rammed the Sierra, a whaling vessel whose masters illegally slaughtered 25,000 whales; he sailed up to a whale processing plant in the former Soviet Union and calmly snapped photographs when confronted with armed guards; he drove a Cuban fishing boat off the Grand Banks to protect the depleted cod population and he founded the radical and confrontationalist Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, after he became disillusioned with Greenpeace tactics.

Ocean Warrior is the story of Paul Watson's conservation career -- an amazing chronicle of bravery, horrifying slaughter and international intrigue. A story of passion and principles, it will not easily be forgotten by anyone who cares about the fate of our oceans -- or our planet.

Synopsis:

Paul Watson has rammed fishing trawlers; smashed whaling ships; sailed boldly into Soviet waters (when the Cold War still chilled international relations); and brazenly challenged the governments of all seafaring nations to live up to the letter of the laws they have agreed to and signed. Paul Watson, who scathingly referred to Greenpeace, an organisation he helped found, as 'the Avon ladies of the environmental movement', has an unswerving mission -- to publicise and stop the atrocities committed against the creatures that inhabit the world's oceans. Ocean Warrior is Paul Watson's own story -- an amazing chronicle of courageous acts in support of deeply held convictions.
