'Whale Wars' Renewed for 5th Season

"Whale Wars" star Capt. Paul Watson and his Sea Shepherds are returning to Animal Planet for another whale defense campaign in June. A fifth season of "Whale Wars" will revolve around Watson and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society's "Operation Divine Wind" campaign.

Even a Collision With the Yushin Maru Can't Slow Down the 'Whale Wars' (VIDEO)

While it may not be the elusive and slipper Nisshin Maru, the Yushin Maru will simply have to do. It's still a big get for the Sea Shepherd. After all, their 'Whale Wars' (Fri., 9PM ET on Animal Planet) is to cripple the business of whale killing by Japanese ships, and the Yushin Maru is an important cog in the machine. To attach a prop fouler, which is supposed to jam up the propellors of the ship, they must get very close to the prow of the vessel they're trying to jam. In this case, their much smaller boat got a little bit too close and took a solid hit. Luckily for all onboard, no one was hurt and they can just chalk up the jarring moment as another memorable experience on their quest. Even more importantly, they were able to get close enough to disable the ship, at least temporarily. It may not be "the white whale," but it still must be pretty satisfying. http://www.aoltv.com/2011/08/01/collision-with-yushin-maru-cant-slow-down-whale-wars-video/

'Whale Wars' Spin-off Coming to Animal Planet

While the team on 'Whale Wars' completed their mission to convince Japan to suspend its controversial whaling operations, their work is still not done. According to Entertainment Weekly, Captain Paul Watson and Peter Hammerstedt will star in a new spin-off tentatively titled 'The Faroe Islands Project.' In the new series, the Sea Shepherds head to the Faroe Islands, halfway between the UK and Iceland. There, they will launch a land, sea and air campaign in an effort to stop "The Grind," an annual hunt for pilot whales that kills about 1,000 whales per year. http://www.aoltv.com/2011/07/25/whale-wars-spin-off-coming-to-animal-planet/

Unforgiving Ship Injures Chief Engineer on 'Whale Wars' (VIDEO)

Chief Engineer Campbell Holland said it pretty well on 'Whale Wars' (Fri., 9PM ET on Animal Planet) when he described the ship by saying, "Everything's steel around here, so it's pretty unforgiving on you." Holland found this out first-hand when he was inspecting a fuel leak. While he was up in a corner inspecting the situation, the ship hit a swell and he found his skull knocked against a jagged edge of steel. While it looked worse than it was, the blood streaming down the side of his head was a solid reminder that you have to be vigilant at all times when working in an environment like this. Especially with the seas rocking the ship constantly, it's essential to know where your body is and where the components of the ship are in proximity to you.

'Whale Wars': Sea Shepherd takes the battle back to the high seas

A new season of "Whale Wars" debuted on Animal Planet Friday night (June 3), and it showcased a more aggressive Sea Shepherd resuming its battle to end whaling -- provided the equipment holds up.Part of the drama in the season premiere was whether one of Sea Shepherd's ships, the Bob Barker (named after the "Price Is Right" host and animal activist), is still up to the hunting-whale-hunters task. (Spoiler: It is.) The crusaders eventually come upon a fleet of Japanese whaling ships, but rough weather in the Southern Ocean doesn't allow for a direct confrontation.Sea Shepherd is calling this season "Operation No Compromise," and founder Paul Watson sets the tone in the clip below. A skeptical reporter asks if he really thinks he can end whaling, and he replies, "You can't stop slavery -- that's what they said once."Take a look at the opening of "Whale Wars." Are you watching? Do you agree with Sea... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/06/whale-wars-sea-shepherd-takes-the-battle-back-to-the-high-seas.html
