The phenomenon known as Whale Wars begins its fifth season tonight on Animal Planet. The rousingly popular series chronicles the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s genius ongoing struggle to end Japanese whaling in the Antarctic.

From the Whale Wars website: “It’s not about whales. It’s about 42 crazy die-hards with a mission”. That mission is to do what no one else on earth will or can do, or has done to protect whales from being hunted and killed.

“Not only do we face an adversary that is very determined to do us harm, but we’re also running a campaign in the harshest environment on this planet. And we’re down here alone”. Ship Operations Officer Peter Hammarstedt
