Remembering Bob Hunter – “I’m not going anywhere”.

Watson and Hunter block the Arctic Endeavour.

I think this is one of the greatest photos ever (Mark).

Paul Watson and the late Bob Hunter block the movement of the ‘Arctic Endeavour’ – thus attempting to save the murder of whitecoat seal pups.

In March of 1976, he and Paul Watson (now Sea Shepherd) stood on the heaving ice floes off the coast of Labrador as a large sealing ship bore down on them. 

As the vessel bore down on them and the ice cracked and split beneath their feet, I (Paul) said to Bob,

when it splits, I’ll jump to the left and you to the right.”

Bob looked straight ahead and calmly said, “I’m not going anywhere.”

And he meant it.

Above – Bob Hunter.
