Sea Shepherds coming to Melbourne.

Dear Sea Shepherd Supporter,

Open Invitation

NEW Invitation:

=> NEW DATE: TUESDAY 7th FEBRUARY, still at 7 pm and at 288 Brunswick st, Fitzroy, near Johnson st.

=> Supporters in the Sydney / Canberra areas, or Byron Bay / Gold Coast / Brisbane areas - Please see the additional information at the bottom of this Invitation


The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is starting a chapter in Melbourne Australia which will, initially at least, represent the whole of Australia. We are looking for volunteers to make it happen!

A meeting is being held Tuesday 7th February at 7pm 288 Brunswick st Fitzroy, near Johnson st.

The purpose of the meeting is to bring together people who wish to work on Sea Shepherd campaigns which largely involve:
Fund and awareness raising.
Networking, finding contacts in Melbourne for when the ship comes in.
Developing a support network for the Sea Shepherd in Australia.
There will be some Administration.
Anything that will help Sea Shepherd that people wish to undertake.
An office has been donated free of charge, our only out goings will be phone calls. This chapter of Sea Shepherd will be making its main objective to support the Sea Shepherd in any way we can, learning from past mistakes from other Sea Shepherd chapters and respecting Paul Watson's / Sea Shepherd's decisions and past leanings. We primarily want to help Paul Watson do his job.

Please send this invitation to anyone that may be interested in joining/donating to Sea Shepherd and/or volunteering time for the Sea Shepherd Australia.

RSVP Tim Midgley --

Tuesday 7th February at 7pm 288 Brunswick st Fitzroy, near Johnson st.
