I agree with most of you about how it needs to stop, but if some of you are going to touch on the basis that some of these mammals and animals are smart then we should be helping out to protect them, but if everyone is so keen on this why not put your attention to bigger issues, wars happening in many countries, starving children, a growing population of homelessness and other major issues in our world, if the sea shepherd has all this money and resources and media attention why cant we relate that to the human race, I'm all for helping animals but not when there is greater injustice being done around the world. I cant speak for everyone but i'd rather put my time, money, and caring into the human race, rather than some whales and dolphins. He should hire some Somali pirates, because then the rest of the world could see why they are forced to become pirates to make enough to feed their families and survive. they don't do it by choice, but more they are forced into it by having not many other opportunities for a career choice. But thats just my opinion.
