SEA SHEPHERD LAUNCHES ITS NEWEST VESSEL, THE M/V JOHN PAUL DEJORIA
Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, the leading direct-action marine conservation non-profit organisation best known for the Animal Planet TV series, Whale Wars and Ocean Warriors, has holding a press conference to announce the unveiling of their brand-new vessel M/V John Paul DeJoria named after co-founder of John Paul Mitchell Systems.
“We are proud to launch a new ship and proud to have it bear the name of John Paul DeJoria,” said Captain Watson. “This ship’s mission is to save the lives of sharks, whales, dolphins, turtles and all other species in the sea being ruthlessly and illegally killed by poachers. John Paul has a passion for life and for conservation that will be reflected in the future actions of this fast-long range patrol vessel.”
Stated DeJoria: “From the top of the highest mountain to the bottom of our deepest sea, all of earth’s creatures deserve to thrive, not barely survive. On behalf of all the families at John Paul Mitchell Systems hair care & John Paul Pet, we honor our connection to all living species on this planet. Paying a little rent through contribution helps keep our planet healthy and become even better because we were here."
