ON THE FRONTLINES: AN INTERVIEW WITH PETER HAMMERSTEDT
In this interview, "Whale Wars'" Peter Hammerstedt discusses Animal Planet's new series "Whale Wars: Viking Shores," which premiered on Friday. The series will focus on Operation Ferocious Isles, the Sea Shepherd's campaign against whaling in the Faroe Islands of the North Atlantic. According to Hammerstedt, ""Viking Shores" is different from past seasons of "Whale Wars" because the whalers themselves participated in the show. We were in a unique position to have an open dialogue with the local Faroese population."
