Sea Shepherd Contest

The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is hosting a contest for next crewmember.

The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is hosting a contest on YouTube to find someone to join its next anti-whaling campaign. Contestants create a video presentation telling Sea Shepherd why he or she is essential to the team. Captain Paul Watson will choose the winner from a pool of finalists selected by the Steve Irwin and Bob Barker crews. The winner will join the crew for a three-month expedition off the coast of Antarctica to intercept illegal Japanese whaling ships in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary, and also will be on Animal Planet’s Whale Wars. The competition runs through October 31, and the expedition is tentatively scheduled from December 2010 to February 2011.
