Revue de presse

As the rest of the world stood by and watched, Laurens risked everything to defend these extraordinary mammals from extinction. A truly powerful and inspiring story. Susan Sarandon

The vast majority of people in the world make up the force that is driving species extinct not by the day but by the hour. Yet in spite of terrible odds and difficult conditions there is a small and dedicated number of people who are working selflessly to stem the rising tide of extinction. Laurens de Groot is one of them. Read his book and you will learn what it takes to lend a hand to reverse the extinction crisis, Mother of All Crises and you will be inspired to activism. --Douglas Tompkins, conservationist and founder of outdoor brand The North Face

An insightful and heartbreaking account of the daring crusades against illegal whalers. Shocking and utterly gripping, this books shows how one person can make a difference, and just how important that difference can be. --Isabel Lucas, Actress and Environmental Activist

The vast majority of people on this planet, whether they realize it or not, are living by killing. That's the primal image of life, with humankind and its casual killing - of each other, the environment, animals, insects, etc. And yet, there are also people on this planet who have evolved beyond this primal image of life, wherein living by killing has been transformed into living by loving. Such is the author of the book that you now hold in your hands. --Shaun Monson, writer/director of Earthlings, winner Best Documentary Film at San Diego Film Festival

Présentation de l'éditeur

'As the rest of the world stood by and watched, Laurens risked everything to defend these extraordinary mammals from extinction. A truly powerful and inspiring story.' Susan Sarandon

Laurens de Groot was a detective for the Dutch police, specializing in organized crime and environmental pollution. He was rapidly promoted through the ranks, but became increasingly disillusioned with failed prosecutions and minimal prison sentences. But although as a detective there was little he could do to stop the truly big criminals, there was a more radical option - direct action, not necessarily within the law.

Laurens leaves his job, sells up, travels to Australia and joins Sea Shepherd, an international organization protecting marine wildlife. He soon finds himself in the middle of the war against the Japanese whaling fleet operating in the Antarctic whale sanctuary. As the Japanese hunt whales, Laurens and the Sea Shepherd crews hunt them. Their boats are tiny for the wild Southern Ocean, and as well as dealing with the extreme weather they are repeatedly attacked by the Japanese crews and nearly shipwrecked by ice. On one mission, their boat is rammed, cut in two and sunk by a whaling ship. This is war, with no quarter given.

Hunting the Hunters is an action-packed and timely account of one man's extraordinary life, as well as an ongoing battle against a powerful nation determined to get its way no matter the cost. It's an important subject, one that a lot of people care about, and as Laurens tells the story in his own words this is a compelling and insightful book.

Great Insight into the life of a Sea Shepherd volunteer 28 février 2014
Par Antoine Tardif - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Laurens de Groot gave up life as a detective after feeling dissatisfied with his purpose in life. Laurens flew to Australia from Holland to join the crew of the Sea Shepherd in its battle against Japanese whalers.

This is also a behind the scenes of the hit TV show "Whale Wars". This takes place in the first 3 seasons of the show and Laurens offers great insight into the mindset of the volunteers and the hardships they experienced.

The highlight for me was the scene when Laurens was on board the Ady Gil when it got smashed by the Japanese whaling ship. This book offers a unique perspective on this incident which is missing from media accounts or the TV show.

Lastly Laurens then pursues another adventure where he spies on the seal hunters in Namibia. This seal hunt is larger than the Canadian hunt but without any of the controversy. Laurens essentially risked getting captured and potentially losing his life in order to document this inhumane hunt.

For a different perspective I also recommend "Whale Warrior" by Pete Bethune.
