Sea Shepherd have saved over 3600 whales during the past eight years – and now they’re tackling the whaling industry face to face. The marine conservation group take on the Japanese whaling fleet in DEFEND, CONSERVE, PROTECT - defending the lives of the Minke whales of the Southern Ocean.

The whaling fleet take no prisoners in their search for the animals. Stephen Amis' riveting documentary introduces us to a small but committed group of conservationists who will stop at nothing to end the hunt. Taking audiences into the centre of the conflict, DEFEND, CONSERVE, PROTECT unflinchingly depicts how a group of conservationists put their own lives in danger for what they believe.
