The Sea Shepherd crew are in town to re-provision and have some R’n'R, docked at Queens’ Wharf until 21st February. There aren’t open tours of the ship, due to tight scheduling; a list of fresh commodity requirements is being circulated, as well as a stall selling t-shirts, caps, hoodies, and the usual clutter of small items to fundraise.
The crew members, with support from the local Sea Shepherd group, are very informative and can answer most questions about whaling, the current campaign, and what they hope to achieve this summer in Antarctic waters.
A few if us* are going down to drop off some vegan baking later this afternoon, I may put up some pix after the event.
Other commodities needed/requested include:
-fresh food (avocados, mangos, spinach…)
-frozen fruits and vegetables – olives
-nuts, cashews, pistacchios – crackers
-miso – juices, sodas, cordials
-dairy-free cream – fake meats
-tofu – cereals
-dried fruits – dairy-free milks (oat, soy, almond)
-vegan treats (biscuits, chocolate)
-hot sauces, tabasco – maple syrup
-bragg, soy sauce, tamari – vegan chocolate spread
-peanut butter, vegemite spreads
*vegan foods contain no animal products (meat, dairy, eggs, honey, etc…)
Donations can be delivered to the ship located at:
Taranaki Wharf, Wellington
*[this is an action of the Wellington Craftivism Collective, I should clarify, not my usual coterie of Wellington Greens.]
Vegan cookies safely dropped off, and there’s still time for more donated items to be taken to the crew, they’re very happy to receive anything vegan on the list!
Ok, here’s those pix:
