Herbert went to Sicily to support Operation Siracusa against poaching in a local marine habitat. The Operation was organized by fellow Sea Shepherds Enzo Maiorca (†2016) and his daughter Patrizia.

At the same time, Sea Shepherd Italy made a wonderful video drawing attention to the ongoing slaughter of dolphins in Taji, Japan.
