THE SOCIAL EDGE INTERVIEW: ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVIST TREVOR VAN DER GULIK
by Robyn Lee
Trevor Van Der Gulik
Thirty-year-old Trevor Van Der Gulik has already spent more than half his life as an environmental activist. He recently spent over two months working as the Chief Engineer aboard The Sea Shepherd’s flagship Farley Mowat. Home again in Canada, he talked to me about the 2006 Antarctica Campaign to confront Japanese poachers of protected and endangered whales inside a designated whale sanctuary.
[Editor's Note] In this interview Captain Paul Watson is referred to as Paul. Captain Watson has spent almost three decades and 160 voyages enforcing international laws on the high seas on behalf of marine wildlife and eco-systems.
