Last week, Captain Paul Watson and the national leaders of Sea Shepherd France, UK and Brazil split from Sea Shepherd Global and founded Sea Shepherd Origins.

This split is the result of differences within the NGO, founded by Paul Watson in 1977, which has always had a mission to protect marine wildlife.

While some wish to limit direct action and change their image in order to collaborate with governments, the secessionists wish to keep the independent and provocative spirit that has characterised Sea Shepherd since its creation.
