Join Sea Shepherd Captain Paul Watson and Sea Shepherd Canberra as we celebrate “A Night for the Whales” at Tilley’s Cafe Gallery this THURSDAY NIGHT. Unfortunately, we have only sold 66 tickets to the event, we have capacity to hold over 200 people. This event will raise funds for our upcoming Antartic Whale Defense Campaign in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary, Operation No Compromise.
100% of all ticket sales are direct donations to Sea Shepherd to benefit Operation No Compromise.
There will be a silent art auction and raffle featuring artwork by Barbara Veiga, Bob Timmons, Benjamin Baldwin, as well as items signed by Captain Paul Watson.
Captain Paul Watson is flying into Canberra on Thursday afternoon and will appear at the Aboriginal Tent Embassy at 2.30pm for a ceremony and will hold a press conference at 3pm. He will then attend the event at Tilley’s where there will be snacks, entertainment and the silent auction. Paul will speak for 45 minutes and there will also be a DVD presentation and merchandise available for purchase. A post event after party will also occur.
It would be great for Canberrans to support this event in protecting Australia’s protected Whale Sanctuary from illegal poaching by the Japanese Whalers.
This year’s Antartic campaign promises to be just as intense as last year’s where the Ady Gil was sunk and the new vessel Bob Barker was added to the fleet. The Sea Shepherd’s have managed to acquire a new interceptor vessel to replace the Ady Gil.
