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 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.
