Welcome to Blue Seals,
a program of the 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, Bluerage Films.
Blue Seals is a rapid
response conservation strike team. Our handpicked team of experts
deploy Albatross Sea Planes, helicopters, and specially-designed boats
to provide direct action, intervention, and exposure to environmental
crimes around the world.
Founded by activist
Peter Brown, who has spent 30 years in the ocean conservation movement,
much of it working with Captain Paul Watson of Sea Shepherds, the Blue
Seals are dedicated to promoting marine conservation and stewardship.
Our goal is to address
some of the most significant issues threatening marine life, including
the illegal slaughter of dolphins, whales and seals, drift net fishing,
shark-finning, and environmental catastrophes like the BP Disaster in
the Gulf of Mexico.
The Blue Seals' mission
in the Gulf of Mexico is to raise awareness about the impacts oil can
have on marine ecosystems and to provide much-needed on-the-ground assistance
in protecting the fragile bays and estuaries of the Gulf Coast.
As long-time collaborators
of Captain Paul Watson and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, (made
famous by Animal Planet's 'Whale Wars'), the Blue Seals are now taking
direct action to help protect the Gulf Coast from the worst oil spill
in our nation’s history.
The Blue Seals urge the American public to take a strong stand against the dangerous drilling practices that are now contaminating one of our country's most valuable natural resources.
The heart and soul of the Blue Seals environmental strike team. This amphibious plane provides blue seals activists and documentary filmmakers with rapid access to remote coastal and ocean environments. With a range of 1,500 miles, the Albatross allows us to spot environmental crimes from the air, to record them, expose them, and to coordinate with our land and sea direct action activists to intervene.
