Volunteer at Sea
Become a Shepherd of the Sea
Apply here to crew on the Steve Irwin, Bob Barker, Sam Simon and Brigitte Bardot!
Sea Shepherd is looking for dedicated individuals to crew aboard our ocean-going ships.
Our obstacles are immense. The motivation to destroy life in our oceans is fueled by material greed. It is easy to recruit crew for money, however, we need to recruit a crew motivated by a passionate compassion. We need people who burn inside with a rage against the injustices perpetrated upon whales, dolphins, seals, sea turtles, sea birds, fish, and every living thing in the world's oceans. We need such people on our ship and in the ranks of our supporters.
All marine wildlife and the ecosystems in which they live are worth fighting for. We need your help in this endeavor.
We are looking for navigators, sailors, engineers, mechanics, electricians, carpenters, welders, cooks, doctors, medics or nurses, small boat operators, helicopter pilots, scuba divers, photographers, videographers, computer and networking specialists, electronics hobbyists and experts, software developers, radio and antenna technicians, and even a few unskilled dedicated Whale Defenders.
Sea Shepherd Campaigns rarely last less than a month. Preference is given to crew who can give the most time.
Room and Board:
Sea Shepherd provides bunk, bedding, food, and water.
No whiners, malcontents, mattress lovers, and wimps need apply.
Our objective is protect and save ocean wildlife and to uphold International Conservation Law.
If you are a ticketed navigator or engineer please feel free to send your CV directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You do not need to fill out the Crew Application Form to become a general member of Sea Shepherd, only to be considered for ship crew.
