SUSTAINABLE WOODSTOCK IS HONORED TO HOST OUR DISTINGUISHED GUESTS

Captain Paul Watson and Omar Todd of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

https://seashepherd.org/

Captain Paul Watson is a marine wildlife conservation and environmental activist. Watson was one of the founding members and directors of Greenpeace. In 1977, he left Greenpeace and founded the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. A renowned speaker, accomplished author, master mariner and lifelong environmentalist, Captain Watson has been awarded many honors for his dedication to the oceans and to the planet. Among many commendations for his work, he received the Genesis Award for Lifetime Achievement in 1998, was named as one of the Top 20 Environmental Heroes of the 20th Century by Time Magazine in 2000 and was inducted into the U.S. Animal Rights Hall of Fame in Washington D.C. in 2002. He was also awarded the Amazon Peace Prize by the president of Ecuador in 2007. In 2012, Captain Watson became only the second person after Captain Jacques Cousteau to be awarded the Jules Verne Award, dedicated to environmentalists and adventurers.

Omar Todd is Director of Special Operations and Executive Assistant to Captain Paul Watson. Omar was previously the Global Chief Technical Director and Chief Information Officer for 10 years for Sea Shepherd worldwide, but is now Captain Paul Watson’s trusted Executive Personal Assistant. Omar’s extensive business experience, entertainment experience and information technology experience with cyber security makes him the perfect, “fixer” and “problem solver”. Omar travels and works with Captain Paul Watson extensively. Omar brings forward thinking, analytical, creative and innovative resolutions to complex problems, which remain commercially focused whilst adhering to conservation principles in a demanding environment. From time to time he also does VIP liaison and gives speeches and talks about Sea Shepherd. Omar considers his Sea Shepherd role to be by far his most satisfying ever and despite his other responsibilities, he puts his Sea Shepherd work first and foremost.
