SKU ID #271090
$19.98
The Whale Wars Season 3 DVD introduces you to the Sea Shepherds, a group of dedicated activists whose mission is to save the whales. With the support of the Ady Gil, a futuristic ship that help the world record for circumnavigation, the crew is geared up to fight. The Whale Wars DVDs give you an inside look into the true campaign and conflicts.

The Whale Wars Season 3 DVD follows Sea Shepherd's 6th Antarctic Whale Defense Campaign, named Operation Waltzing Matilda in honor of Australia's unofficial national anthem, on the three-month journey to the South Ocean Whale Sanctuary to stop illegal whaling. As in previous campaigns, the conflict between Sea Shepherd and the whalers grows more intense with each engagement — and Animal Planet documents the action in the new 12-part series.

Buy the Whale Wars Season 3 DVD and be taken on a three month journey across the South Ocean Whale Sanctuary as the crew of the Sea Shepherd battles would-be killers of the incredible whales of the Antarctic.

"The issues surrounding whaling in the Southern Ocean are important and complex, and Whale Wars returns once again to capture them in all their intensity," says Marjorie Kaplan, president and general manager of Animal Planet. "The majesty of these beautiful creatures and the lengths to which the Sea Shepherds will go in order to prevent whaling has made Whale Wars entertaining yet vital television. The series has become a trademark for the new Animal Planet, and audiences now expect to kick off summer television viewing with its return."

In June 2009, Sea Shepherd announced its 2009-10 Antarctic campaign, called Operation Waltzing Matilda. The campaign would include the record-breaking Earthrace vessel, now renamed Ady Gil in honor of the benefactor who helped acquire the vessel for Sea Shepherd. The Ady Gil was a futuristic styled ship that held the world record for circumnavigation of the globe by a motorized vessel. The eco-friendly vessel usually ran on a low emission fuel "derived mainly from animal fat, soybeans or other forms of bio-diesel" but was forced by operational reasons to switch to a more polluting petroleum diesel. Pete Bethune, the operator, said that an agreement was reached with Sea Shepherd for the boat to adopt a support role.

Sea Shepherd Founder and President Captain Paul Watson said, "Ships are expendable, endangered and protected whales are not. We lost a ship and we have one crewmember taken prisoner, and no injuries were caused nor sustained. I think we did bloody well this year and 528 whales were saved. We won’t stop until whaling ends."

              Whale Wars is a great show put on my Discovery Channel. Season 3 was by far the best season so far.

                I have just finished watching Season 3 of "Whale Wars." This dvd contained the Sea Shepherd activists in the very real headlines of 2010: Cap. Paul Watson, Peter Bethune, and Chuck Swift. My heart broke for the loss of that beautiful boat Ady Gil. It is truly an honor to support them. Now I have them on dvds.

                I have enjoyed every aspect of this series and the work of Sea Shepherd in saving the lives of whales in the sanctuary. It shows the cruelty of the Japanese and the bravery of the men and women who put their lives in danger to protect these wonderful animals.

                I really liked the show but there are a couple of attack scenes that are fake and show the nishu marou coming towards a dingy and the waves are completely different heights and they never show both boats in the same scene. [...]
