Tune in for a very special edition of Animal Voices as we speak with Sea Shepherd crew member Laurens de Groot, live via satellite phone from the M/Y Bob Barker. de Groot recounts his harrowing experience on the now-sunk Ady Gil, which was violently rammed this past week by Japanese whaling vessel the Shonan Maru 2. In the short time available, de Groot paints a clear picture of the stakes involved in this escalating battle over the lives of minke and fin whales in Antarctica. We also discuss the psychological effects of the ramming, the short memory of the media, and the power of a small group of individuals to create change.
