Star of Whale Wars
Marine Wildlife Conservationist, Activist, Author

Watson helms of the world's leading direct action ocean conservation organization – the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, which he founded in 1977. Since 2002, Watson and his dedicated crew have taken to the high seas to attempt to stop Japanese ships from hunting whales in Antarctica. Their efforts are documented in Animal Planet's hit television series Whale Wars, now in its fourth adrenaline-fueled season.

Captain Watson was wonderful! So gracious with his fans and he gave a wonderful keynote. People were talking about it all day. It really made a big impact having him at the event. Please make sure he knows how moved the students were to have him there. It meant the world.

Iowa State University

What devoted fans he has! There was a lively exchange over his dinner with the students planning the World Affairs Series, then 300 attended the lecture on one of our busiest nights of the semester.  He was kind enough to stay late signing books, answering questions, and posing for photographs with audience members. We received emails about his upcoming visit from all over the Midwest!
