Im back in Byron Bay after 7 months “Sailing the Winds of Change” see full story of the trip in my blog on the left. During the last week I have been amazed at the shocking violent behavior of the Japanese whalers ramming Sea Shepherd while they bravely stopped the illegal refueling and the killing of our friends from the ocean. Paul now needs our help to gain an Australian Passport and to prevent his extradition to Japan. Again see my blog on left for more info on that conflict and emails to lobby politicians also see http://www.seashepherd.org.au/ and http://www.facebook.com/dean.jefferys.5 feel free to be my friend on FB check photos of the trip and like my page http://www.facebook.com/Migaloo2 Subscribe too on this page to get info on future sailing trips,whale actions and on live streaming events.

See my blog for more info, media release and video clip of the first day “Sailing 2012 and Beyond”. Migaloo 2 is a 45 ft fiberglass yacht that we are using as a platform to raise awareness on critical issues facing whales, dolphins and the marine environment. This year Migaloo 2 will sail along the east coast of Australia with “Sailing the Winds of Change 2012 and Beyond” campaign which is planned to be made into a documentary. SAILING THE WINDS OF CHANGE is a marine conservation campaign along the east coast of Australia, following the Humpback whale migration from Byron Bay, to the solar eclipse in Cairns. Migaloo 2 will journey through the spectacular Great Barrier Reef and explore and expose many of the urgent issues currently threatening this World Heritage area and its inhabitants.
Migaloo 2 will visit many ports along the way, to met with locals and environment groups to hear about local environmental issues such as the massive expansion of the Coal and Gas industries in Queensland, whale ship strikes, sonar testing, shark fining, shark nets, ocean and marine health, and pollution. I will also address important relevant global issues, such as whaling, dolphin capture and slaughter, deforestation, plant law reform, renewable energy and global warming. Migaloo 2 will be free voice for the people.
