Captain Watson has taken measures to ensure there will not be a repeat of losing our scout ship and there will be two fast scout vessels for the next campaign to the Southern Ocean along with the ships Bob Barker and Steve Irwin.

The Brigitte Bardot is now moored at Seawerks Dock in Williamstown along with the Steve Irwin. The Bob Barker is in Hobart and will move to Sydney in June.

The Brigitte Bardot will depart in mid-June to the South Pacific to undertake a campaign against shark finning.

The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society plans to depart for Antarctica in December with a four ship fleet.
