Sir Sean Connery joins Sea Shepherd Conservation Society advisory board
Academy Award-winning actor and producer Sir Sean Connery, best known as the original James Bond, has joined the International Advisory Board of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society
, the worldâs leading marine wildlife conservation nonprofit organization. Connery joins the SSCS advisory board alongside two valued new additions: four-time Womenâs World Surfing Champion Stephanie Gilmore and Emmy Award-winning Writer, Producer and Director/Co-Creator of The Simpsons, Sam Simon.
Another former James Bond, Pierce Brosnan, is also a member of Sea Shepherdâs advisory board.
In announcing her husbandâs alliance with the leading global marine conservation non-profit, Micheline Roquebrune, Conneryâs wife of 36 years, said, âItâs natural that Sean and I bring our support to the mandatory mission of Sea Shepherd.â
Commenting on what it means to have the original â007â join the ranks of Sea Shepherd supporters, SSCS Founder and President Captain Paul Watson said, "We are fortunate to have Pierce Brosnan, Christian Bale, Richard Dean Anderson, Martin Sheen, William Shatner, and Marina Sirtis among Sea Shepherdâs devoted members and supporters. Today we gained a new Advisory Board member-Sean Connery. How can we lose? We have two James Bonds, Batman, MacGyver, a former âPresident of the United States,â Captain Kirk, and Counselor Troi on our side.â
Connery, Gilmore and Simon join a slate of esteemed advisors from the animal protection, conservation, media, arts, legal, and business communities who all lend their expertise in support of Sea Shepherdâs mission to defend, conserve and protect ocean wildlife worldwide.
