The newest ship in the Sea Shepherd flotilla has arrived in Hobart in the Australian state of Tasmania, ready for this summer's campaign against Japanese whalers, "Operation Zero Tolerance".

The "Sam Simon" is a former Japanese government vessel, quietly bought from the Japanese, and refurbished in Brisbane.

It's named after the environmental activist and co-creator of "The Simpsons", who is now on the Sea Shepherd advisory board.
