For 3 months Glenn Lockitch photographed the Sea Shepherd Antarctic Campaign 2009/2010 on board the Bob Barker, the new addition to the Sea Shepherd fleet. It was a highly successful campaign saving 528 whales and cost the Japanese whalers over $100 million.

Glenn met up with the Bob Barker, an ex-1950’s Norwegian whaling ship, in Mauritius where it was prepared for the epic journey down to the icy waters of Antarctica to stop whales being slaughtered in the name of ‘research’.

His journey had many surprises, including the futuristic ‘Batmobile’ Sea Shepherd ship the Ady Gil being rammed and sunk by a Japanese Government security ship threatening the six crew’s lives. His ship the Bob Barker was intentionally rammed tearing a one metre gash in its hull.

Glenn’s Whale Wars photos received global newspaper, television, magazine and online media coverage.
