Sea Shepherd - What's it all about?

Sea Shepherd accused by former skipper of sinking protest boat | Environment | guardian.co.uk

Sea Shepherd deliberately sank its own hi-tech protest boat after a January collision with a Japanese whaling ship to gain sympathy, the former skipper alleged Thursday in a public spat with the conservation group's founder.
The campaign has drawn high-profile donor support in the United States and elsewhere.

It's just about saving the whales, isn't it?

Comments

It's worth noting that although the organisation denies the claims, they only deny that the captain of the Ady Gil was ordered to scuttle the boat. They claim he chose to do so. But everyone agrees that it was deliberately sunk by members of the organisation and they didn't bother mentioning it at the time.
