Sea Shepherd Shake-Up

The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society renames Earthrace vessel the Ady Gil.

On Saturday, the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society announced that its futuristic Earthrace defense vessel would now sail under a new moniker: the Ady Gil. Named in honor of a Sea Shepherd benefactor, the newly christened ship will join the team's flagship Steve Irwin on its upcoming whale defense campaign in Antarctica, dubbed Operation Waltzing Matilda. Launching from Australia in December, the Ady Gil—with an impressive speed capacity of up to 50—will spend its first winter fighting illegal Japanese whaling in the arctic waters. Captain Paul Watson, Sea Shepherd president and founder, said that the Ady Gil will appear on the third season of Whale Wars.
