Sea Shepherd to host fundraising event to ‘protect the seas’

Sea Shepherd Conservation International is hosting the Los Angeles Night for the Oceans on October 23 to benefit the organization’s efforts to “defend, conserve, and protect the seas.”

On hand at the event will be Captain Paul Watson, Michelle Rodriguez, The Crystal Method, Flea, Isabel Lucas, Daryl Hannah, Beau Bridges, Kristin Bauer, Emily Deschanel in addition to the Whale Wars crew.

A special announcement is expected as Sea Shepherd reveals details of the new interceptor vessel that will be joining the fleet during its upcoming campaign in the Southern Ocean dubbed Operation No Compromise.

Typically the event is by invitation only but this year the Sea Shepherd set aside 25 tickets on a first come first serve basis which can be obtained by supporters.

As we previously reported Animal Planet picked up Whale Wars for a fourth season which will begin airing in early June of 2011.
