Bob Barker helps stop whaling with namesake ship

LOS ANGELES — Five million dollars for an anti-whaling ship? Bob Barker says the price is right.
Barker donated that amount to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, which named its new 1,200-ton anti-whaling ship The Bob Barker.
The ship had its first confrontation with whalers on Tuesday when it joined two other Sea Shepherd vessels aiming to stop a Japanese whaling mission near Antarctica.
"Whaling was shut down today," Sea Shepherd founder Paul Watson said via satellite phone from aboard a nearby ship. "There's no whaling now and hopefully no whaling after this."
The Bob Barker is a high-speed former whaling ship that can cut through ice, Watson said, adding that the vessel "makes it a lot easier for us to shut down these whaling operations."
Sea Shepherd, which Watson describes as an "anti-poaching organization," aims to enforce the United Nations World Charter for Nature by physically intervening in illegal whaling missions.
"They're targeting endangered and protected whales," he said.
Barker, a longtime animal activist, stepped up his efforts even more after retiring from his 35-year gig hosting "The Price Is Right." He met Watson through a fellow animal activist and was instantly impressed.
"He said he thought he could put the Japanese whaling fleet out of business if he had $5 million," Barker recalled. "I said, 'I think you do have the skills to do that, and I have $5 million, so let's get it on,' so that's what we did."
Barker, 86, said he was "genuinely proud" to be associated with Sea Shepherd. And while the TV studio where "The Price Is Right" is filmed is officially called the Bob Barker Studio, the veteran broadcaster said he's never had a ship named after him.
"It was our idea to name it the Bob Barker. He's a little too humble for that," Watson said. "I thought it was the least we could do."

That was a mighty big gesture of him to donate such an amount to this worthy cause, unfortunately there seemed to be some trouble concerning one of their other two boats.

"The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society said its powerboat Ady Gil was rammed by a Japanese security vessel, and sliced in two, no one was hurt"

Interesting Vanilla!
Imagine the amount suffering that would be eliminated if people like Bob Barker, who seem to have all the money, made similar attempts to better this world.
It would be astronomical!
One can dream !

I have watched this show a few times. I think it's great that Bob Barker has made a great contribution to this cause. Whales are Beautiful Beings they have much to teach us. To me when i think of whales i feel Tranquility & Peace. If only more people would promote this, we could be living in a more Peaceful world.

Go Bob Barker & the Crew & People involved in this cause Thumb

Many Blessings
