    This is cool! I've been following this SS campaign on YouTube and was really happy to see them using a FLIR system to catch the bandits in the act!

    I used to love to watch "whale wars" when sea shepherd was on tv's animal planet. They assaulted the Japanese whale catchers.

    Haha! :eek: Sea Shepherd was protecting whales in the southern ocean whale sanctuary. It's common knowledge that the Japanese whale "research" is a guise to kill whales to sell the meat. SS was protecting the whales from being assaulted (killed) by the Japanese whalers. The world needs more people like the Sea Shepherds and their drone pilots! :)
