Captain Peter James Bethune (born 4 April 1965) is a New Zealand ship's captain with 500 ton master licence, published author, producer of The Operatives TV Show, and public speaker. He is the founder of Earthrace Conservation . He works assisting countries in Asia, Central America and Africa with fisheries enforcement and anti-poaching. He is the holder of the world record for circumnavigating the globe in his powerboat Earthrace, a wavepiercing trimaran powered with biofuels. Earthrace was renamed the Ady Gil in 2009 and Captain Bethune sailed it in Antarctica for Sea Shepherd Conservation Society[1] to disrupt Japanese whaling activities. The vessel was involved in a collision with a Japanese whaling vessel. He subsequently boarded the whaling vessel the Shonan Maru 2 and presented the Captain with an invoice for the Ady Gil. Captain Bethune was taken back to Japan and charged with a number of offenses related to his anti-whaling activities and received a suspended sentence.
