Pete Bethune from "The Operatives" stars in the Pivot reality docu-series. He is a member of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and previously was featured in Animal Planet's reality docu-drama "Whale Wars" as the Ady Gil Captain.

Pete Bethune has worked for the Earthrace Charitable Trust since January 2005. He skippers Earthrace on its tour around the world to promote biodiesel and renewable fuels.

Pete has a wealth of knowledge on the oil industry, having worked as an Oil Exploration Engineer in New Zealand, the North Sea and North Africa. He co-founded the hi-tech company CamSensor, which makes automated cameras for performing robot control and automated quality control.

His goal is to see the Earthrace boat and crew become a positive promotion for change.

I think Pete is truely a hero! I think it is pathetic that he even went to prison. The CPT of the Japanese ship should have his liscense revoked and have to pay reparations for his destruction of the Addy Gil! The Japanese Govt supports its criminal personell in antartica, why won't any of our gov't support the actions of the Sea sheppard persons?
