Sea Shepherd Conservation Society's founder, president, and executive director Captain Paul Watson's philosophy on activism is summed up by this comment:  "Each and every one of us has the ability to change the world for the better.  All we have to do is harness our own abilities and our talents to our passion, and with courage and imagination we can change the world." 

Paul was a founding member and director of Greenpeace until he left in 1977 to found the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.  Sea Shepherd is an international non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organization that uses direct action to “expose and confront illegal activities on the high seas.”
