Jeff Hansen on direct action (Part 1 of 2)

Jeff Hansen is the Managing Director of Sea Shepherd Australia, defending, conserving and protecting the world’s ocean. We talk about Jeff's journey from Electronic and Computer Engineer to saving whales in Antarctica, some of the direct action campaigns of Sea Shepherd Australia, and what it's like to have possibly the best job in the world.

This is a two-part conversation, with the second (and final) part released next week.
