Welcome to the Official Website of the
Sea Shepherd Gallery and Educational Center
Our mission is to
end the destruction
of habitat and
wildlife in the
world's oceans in
order to conserve
Our flag was designed by Captain Paul Watson and drawn by our official ship's artist Geert Jan Vons of the Netherlands.
It depicts a crossed shepherd's staff and Neptune's trident. Set into the skull is the yin yang symbol using a Sperm whale and a dolphin.
What does it mean?
The Shepherd's crook signifies that we are shepherds of the sea and the trident signifies that we fight for life in the sea.
The skull represents the enemy of the sea (i.e. mankind) and the yin yang with the dolphin and the whales means that we must learn from the whales and dolphins, how to live in harmony with the sea.
