Evironmentalist and co-founder of Greenpeace.

Watson was one of the original founders of Greenpeace, in Vanvouver British Columbia. He left it, in disgust, in 1977, because it was not active enough. He now heads the US Sea Shepherd organization, a tax-exempt charity. He belongs to the Direct Action school of environmental protest, meaning that he performs illegal actions which some consider ecoterrorism. For example, he is wanted by the Norwegian government for an attack on the Whaling vessel Senet, in which he employed ex-Navy SEAL operatives.
