US conservation group Sea Shepherd vowed to fight a court order to stay at least 500 yards away from Japanese whaling ships, and to keep protecting whales "with our ships and our lives". 

The environmental group Sea Shepherd's main ship, the Steve Irwin, is anchored at Sydney Harbour, Australia, on August 31, 2012. Sea Shepherd has vowed to fight a US court order to stay at least 500 yards away from Japanese whaling ships, and to keep protecting whales "with our ships and our lives."
