Canadian–born Paul Watson, the oldest of seven children, founded the interventionist group called the Sea Shepherd in 1977 after leaving the organization Greenpeace, which he also co-founded and served from 1969 to 1977. Paul’s career as an environmental protectionist began after he joined the Kindness Club, founded by Aida Flemming. Their first animal rights protectionist mission was confiscating and destroying leg hold traps used to catch beavers. They also were active in disrupting duck and deer hunters by distracting them when trying to shoot these animals.
