|Sea Shepherd Conservation Society|
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.

The Society was originally set up as a non-profit charitable organisation in Scotland, in the spring of 1996 with the aim of protecting and conserving pinnipeds worldwide. The Society has been almost dormant since 2002 and we are reestablishing it in 2010 and will be applying for charitable status again in the UK. The primary aims of the Society remain to protect and conserve pinnipeds worldwide by Monitoring and attempting to minimise threats to pinniped populations.
