2009 Genesis Awards
Every year, the Genesis Awards pays tribute to the major news and entertainment media for producing outstanding works such as these, which raise public understanding of animal issues. As much as film, television, print and the arts reflect societal attitudes, they also help shape and change those attitudes. The mass media have the power to spotlight animal issues to vast audiences—literally at the speed of light.
This year's gala and awards ceremony were held in tribute to The Humane Society of the United States' Protect Seals Campaign.

An Update on Sea Shepherd News with Captain Paul Watson
Sea Shepherd has a lot of preparation to do in organizing for their return to Antarctica in Dec ember. "We’re trying to go down with 2 ships. We were able to cut their quota in half last year and if we can get two ships we might be able to cut it down to 90%" Paul said.
Lush has been helpful withSea Shepherd's campaign to end sealing in Canada and shark finning worldwide. Watson said, "we just got a big victory with the seals because the EU Parliament passed a bill to ban seal products which meant they only took 21% of their quota." Canada had set out to kill over 330,000 baby seals this year. "So it was a good year for the seals and hopefully we can have the same kind of impact on shark finning" said Paul.
Sea Shepherd also has ongoing work in Galapagos where they are confiscating shark fins at the airports and ports. Paul also said, "we have surveillance parked in the northern islands so we’re cutting down poaching quite a bit.
