Do you believe that dolphins and whales should swim free?
Operation 404 was a campaign, focused on the captive industry for dolphins and whales. This campaign was designed to focus on the dolphinariums that force the animals to perform tricks and shows for food, the dolphins living in small tanks or even swimming pools, and the whales and dolphins captured from the wild, purely for entertainment.
'404 Not Found' and 404 (pronounced "four oh four") error message is a Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) standard response code, in computer network communications, to indicate that the server could not find what was requested. '404 - Dolphinarium Not Found' is our play on this common error message - especially significant given that the captive dolphin entertainment industry is so heavily reliant on the internet to advertise and sell tickets.

How does my purchase help with marine conservation?
Sea Shepherd is an international non-profit organization, and our work is only possible because of generous donations and through the sale of our official merchandise.
Our eStore gives us the opportunity to raise vital funds for our marine conservation campaigns across the Americas. Every purchase you make helps us maintain our fleet of ships, equip our crew, and continue the fight for the ocean. Thank you for helping us protect marine wildlife worldwide!
What are your products made from?
We are committed to sustainability, with most of our products having a GOTS or Fairtrade certifications. For our clothing, we source 100% organic cotton for natural-fiber, plastic-free apparel. This also helps keep plastic out of the ocean as every laundry load of synthetic clothing releases millions of plastic microfibers into the ocean.
For our other items, we source recycled materials and screen all of our suppliers for a responsible supply chain, sustainable product, sustainable operations, and community involvement.
Sea Shepherd has high standards in terms of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and eco-friendly sourcing.
Can you change your shipping costs?
Our goal is to reduce our global footprint, and so we encourage everyone to choose the Sea Shepherd merchandise store closest to you if possible. That’s why our shipping costs outside of the US are higher.
We carefully source our shipping providers to ensure their sustainability and we maintain regular checks to try and reduce costs where possible.
