Captain Paul Watson and his Sea Shepherd crew have faced many challenges since setting sail on their latest campaign, experiencing everything from treacherous waters to enemy attacks. Now a third ship, the Bob Barker, has joined the crew on their adventure in the Southern Ocean. The vessel was built for harpoon fishing, but its ability to weather rocky and iceberg-strewn waters make it an invaluable addition to the crew’s growing fleet. In true Sea Shepherd style, the new ship—which joins the Steve Irwin and the Ady Gil—was named to honor a generous benefactor. Recently, television personality and animal-welfare activist Bob Barker donated $5 million to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.
