Etwas Pirat steckt doch in fast jedem von uns - warum nicht im Dienst einer guten Sache!!
About 20 years ago, our critics began to label Sea Shepherd as “pirates” in an effort to demonize us. So we responded by saying, “If you want us to be pirates, well, we’ll be pirates.” Artist Geert Vons and Captain Paul Watson designed our version of the skull and crossbones. It was thoughtfully designed to convey our message.
The human skull conveys that we humans are the cause of the mass extinctions presently occurring. On the forehead of the skull, the yin/yang depiction of a dolphin and a whale symbolizes the ecological balance and the harmony of interdependence, necesarry in the oceans.
Below the skull is the crossed shepherd’s crook and the trident. The shepherd’s crook represents that we are shepherds, combined with the neptunes trident, that we are Sea Shepherds. The trident itself represents that our approach is non-violent but aggressive and the dolphin on the trident signifies that our efforts are directed on behalf of our clients — the citizens of the sea.
As has been seen in history, it takes a pirate to stop a pirate, and if the oceans die, we die. 📷 Gary Stokes / Sea Shepherd
