Metal Hammer TV recently interviewed Gojira frontman Joe Duplantier about the band's support of the environmental organization Sea Shepherd. He traces his interest in the environment to encounters with oil spills as a child, and recalls being impressed by Sea Shepherd's activities after watching a documentary on sharks. Many of Gojira's songs have an environmental message, and employ images of whales and oceans, so this is clearly a major issue for him, which he explains very capably in the clip above.
