Carisa and her team got flights , and flew into Seattle today. It is so good to have them back safe!!
I am very happy to report her niece and her crew are alive and unharmed! However, they are not out of the woods yet. They are on foot, cold and hungry. They are reporting total devastation where they are. They lost their cars in the tsunami, and are about 1000kms from the airport. They had to spend the night on top of a hill in the elements.
They are currently in a hotel in Tono with no power, water, or food.
There has been a relief page set up to to help raise funds to get them back home. If you are able to give a little to help, that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you... all for your prayers, and continued support.

Here is the article posted on Sea Shepherd this morning. Sea Shepherd’s Cove Guardians are Alive and Unharmed
My niece through my husband's side of the family is in Northwest Japan in Otsuchi. She is traveling with 2 other companions as Cove Guardians for Sea Shepherd. They arrived early in Otsuchi yesterday, and posted on their blog that they had arrived. They have not been heard from since the earthquake and tsunami hit. We are all worried sick about her, and hope that she and her companions will be found safe and sound soon.
She and her companions were sent there to document, and film the slaughter of 1000's of Taiji Dolphins in Northwest Japan.
