A New Ship! The Sea Eagle Joins Sea Shepherd’s Fleet
Sea Shepherd is excited to present the Sea Eagle, the latest addition to our fleet of marine conservation vessels known as Neptune’s Navy. The new ship was purchased through funding from Allianz SE, Allianz Technology, and Allianz Italy as part of Sea Shepherd’s new two-year partnership with Allianz to address the issue of plastic marine debris polluting the ocean.
The Sea Eagle is a 40-meter former French pilot boat equipped to accommodate 19 crew and carry two small boats. Having been built for the Atlantic Ocean, the ship is capable of navigating the roughest seas. The Sea Shepherd crew worked tirelessly to ensure a smooth transit of the Sea Eagle from Thyborøn, Denmark to Syracuse, Italy, where it’s now preparing for upcoming campaigns in the Mediterranean Sea.
Sea Shepherd is an international, non-profit marine conservation organization that engages in direct action campaigns to defend wildlife, and conserve and protect the world’s oceans from illegal exploitation and environmental destruction.
