Sea Shepherd

If you know me, I often wear things right after I buy them.

Case in point–this unique patchwork top from Fremont Flea Market in September in Seattle. It’s an asymmetrical design made with three different prints sewn together in a unique swirly pattern with two pockets.

After leaving the market, Jean took us to the harbour where Sea Shepherd was hosting a two-day Open House. Perfect timing that we happened to be in Seattle!

We embarked the Martin Sheen (research vessel) and met the crew which were heading for Mexico in the next few days. Please check out the link! πŸ™‚

The Open House was one of the highlights of our trip to Seattle.

What a pleasant surprised that Jean’s friend, Ruth, happened to be there!

They took us to the lower deck to watch some pertinent videos of what Sea Shepherd isΒ exposing in the research they do, as well their recent endeavours.

Their mission: “Established in 1977, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS) is an international non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organization. Our mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species.”

Please take one minute to watch …

I first found out about Sea Shepherd in NYC while at The Seed event (an inspiring vegan festival) in 2014.

In the evening, we started watching the Whale WarsΒ television series, which we continued to watch every evening until the end of the season. We were riveted to our seats. You know the feeling when you can’t put a book down–this was like that and we couldn’t turn the TV off!

This is a reality show, real life as it unfolds for the courageous women and men of the Sea Shepard. Truly inspiring and as horrible as it was to see the cruelty of some humans, I was encouraged to learn that there are still compassionate people in the world who do care! We need them.

I hope you will take some time to check out the links and watch the Sea Shephards in action.

I thank God forΒ the Sea Shepherds and all who make a difference to help people, animals and our planet. What a wonderful world! Let’s take care of it!

Thank you for reading!

    My dear Carmen, I love to see you wearing beautiful clothes, like this wonderful asymmetrical top, which has a beautiful print, but I am very excited to read on your blog reports on ecological markets, animal rights or organizations working for the environment. This organization that you present to us seems very interesting and I will follow your actions. Thank you for sharing beauty and solidarity! This mix is what makes you a wonderful woman!

    That is a fine ship the Martin Sheen and doing great work. How fantastic for you to have been on it and meet the crew. It is sad .. on one side there are people who kill animals and don’t care and on the other side you have the wonderful people who are trying to save them and care. What a world it would be if only…….
