Earthrace began when Captain Pete Bethune built what became known as the “World’s Coolest Boat”. In 2008 his team set a new world record for circling the globe by powerboat, running 100% renewable biodiesel fuel. The following year Earthrace teamed up with Sea Shepherd and went to Antarctica to stop Japanese Whaling, much of it covered in the Animal Planet show “Whale Wars”. Following Antarctica, Earthrace commenced conservation missions targeting wildlife poachers, wildlife smugglers, illegal fishing and illegal logging. Below are some cool videos and images highlighting this rich history.
