Event description

Description

Celebrate Sea Shepherd's 42 years of frontline marine conservation by attending our Ocean Defence Tour, returning to Toowoomba this October with a special screening of the epic film: Chasing the Thunder!

Chasing the Thunder is a high-seas documentary about our epic 110-day, 10 000-mile chase of the “Thunder,” considered the world’s most notorious poaching vessel. Across two seas and three oceans, marine activists hunted the fugitive fishing ship through massive ice floes, storms-tossed seas, a near collision and violent clashes until the Thunder dramatically sank, burying the evidence of its crimes on the bottom of the South Atlantic.

The ocean is one of our primary life supports in providing over 50% of the world's oxygen and regulating the global climate and weather patterns through the transportation of heat from the equator to the poles. Yet the world ocean's future, and ours, hangs by a thread due to three main threats - illegal fishing, plastic pollution and climate change.
Come and hear first hand what our lean and effective movement is doing to tackle the big three threats around Australia’s coasts and globally.
This is a fight we cannot afford to lose, for if we lose this fight, we all lose.

Toowoomba's event will feature live music entertainment, a taiko drumming performance, a delicious vegan grazing table and bar facilities. This year our special guest speaker will be Captain Alistair Allan from Sea Shepherd's MV Sam Simon, an inspiring Australian born individual who had been with SS for almost 10 years and has crewed on 12 campaigns.

Get on board Ocean Defence Tour 2019 and together we will turn back the tide and safeguard our primary life support: our oceans. This is an event not to be missed!
