Sea Shepherd's Southern Ocean Armada

The Sea Shepherd's 9th Southern Ocean Campaign - "Zero Tolerance" - is in full swing. To date, the reported highlights in this year's operations have only involved some strategic maneuver, a bit of deception, and lawfare.  Even so, the photograph above is fairly remarkable in that a non-state actor has privately assembled a maritime force of ocean-going ships, helicopters, and UAVs, sailed it once again into unforgiving Antarctic waters, and taken a photograph in a formation normally seen only with mainstream navies. Stay tuned.
