ISSUED FROM AUCKLAND, New Zealand and FRIDAY HARBOR, Washington State
Pete Bethune, founder of Earthrace Conservation, and Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, have reached an agreement following arbitration in their long-running legal dispute. The agreement, which involved a financial settlement to Bethune, also provided that he will assist Sea Shepherd to help ensure Paul Watson is not extradited to Japan.
Video blog from Pete Bethune about the Shark Stanley campaign that Earthrace is supporting, started by www.sharkdefenders.com. A great way for people to join in an action from home and pressure CITES into increasing protecting for our manta rays and sharks.
