One for the whales...
Deya Dova (pictured), Bunna Lawrie and Channelfree will hit the stage at Coorabell Hall on Friday, December 8, to launch a new compilation CD called Songs for Sea Shepherd. Produced entirely in the funky village of Uki, the CD is a collection of the works by 15 artists (Loren, Cloud 9, The Blissmongers Collective, Future Native, Deya Dova, Bunna Lawrie, Channelfree and more) and all artists donated their time for this good cause.
Production was designed at The Mothership Recording Retreat (Uki) with original art by local artists. Funds to press 2000 copies were raised from local small business. Good work!
Founded by Paul Watson in 1977, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is an international non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organisation whose mission is to defend, conserve, and protect the worlds marine wildlife species and marine wilderness ecosystems by enforcing international law on the high seas. They dont muck around.
Sea Shepherd has a direct-action no-nonsense approach and has established itself as the most determined and effective marine wildlife conservation organisation on the planet.
All profits from the sale of Songs for Sea Shepherd will go to Sea Shepherd as they prepare to (once again) defend the whales of the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary (around Antarctica) from the Japanese whaling fleet who intend to kill about a thousand whales including endangered humpback and fin whales.
(Last year Sea Shepherd chased the entire Japanese whaling fleet for 4000 miles and in 15 days not one whale was killed leaving the Japanese 85 short of their quota.)

The launch starts at 7pm. Entry is $25 which includes the CD. Food and drink is available. The CD will also be available from the Sea Shepherd website.
