Bring Whale Wars' Peter Bethune to speak in the SF-Bay Area!!

Peter James "Pete" Bethune (born 4 April 1965) is a New Zealand promoter of bio-fuels and conservationist. He is the holder of the world record for the fastest trip around the world in a powerboat and was involved with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. He was captain of the Ady Gil (previously the Earthrace) until it sank after a collision with a Japanese whaling vessel. He was convicted in Japan for a direct action that involved boarding that whaling vessel to arrest the captain and received a suspended sentence.

For those outdoor enthusiasts, check out Peter's adventures in the open ocean on YouTube. Not only does he have incredible sea stories and proven his stamina, he had a Japanese cargo ship ram his million dollar speed boat and was arrested for anti-whaling activities. Invite him to the Bay Area to tell all about his efforts and philosophy in protecting awe-inspiring sea life.
