"Growing up on the beach in the surf coast town of Torquay I've always had a very strong affinity and connection with the ocean. I admire and respect the brilliant work that Sea Shepherd does to defend and protect our precious wildlife. Their ongoing, fearless determination to take action to protect our dying oceans is really admirable, and extremely important. It's very upsetting that whales are still being slaughtered in the Antarctic Whale Sanctuary, and I pledge my full support towards the tenacious Paul Watson and the brave, tireless Sea Shepherd crew," said Catherine Mack.

Many of the scenes filmed on location for Home and Away are done at Palm Beach on Sydney's Northern Beaches. Cast and crew often see whales and dolphins playing in the waves and so share Catherine's admiration for the work done by the Sea Shepherd. You can even see their logo on the surfboard in the background of this shot with Brax and Natalie.

Sea Shepherd's Mission Statement

Established in 1977, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS) is an international non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organization. Our mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world's oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species.

Sea Shepherd uses innovative direct-action tactics to investigate, document, and take action when necessary to expose and confront illegal activities on the high seas. By safeguarding the biodiversity of our delicately-balanced ocean ecosystems, Sea Shepherd works to ensure their survival for future generations.
