Defending Orcas: No More Captivity BookRegular price $14.95
This book provides a behind-the-scenes look at how performing orcas are treated at marine parks worldwide. Orcas are part of the same biological family as dolphins and thrive in the open sea. Being captured or born into captivity interferes with and stunts their natural growth and development. Kids learn about the world of orcas, their unique characteristics, their place in the ocean's ecosystem, how they are hunted and captured, and how difficult it is to adapt to captivity.
Of special interest are the introductions to individual orcas (some of them world famous) and information on how to protect orcas in the future. Includes beautiful color photos of orcas throughout the text and resources on conservation groups.

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.
