Sea Shepherd's "Dam Guardians"

Sea Shepherd “Dam Guardians”

Sea Shepherd was unsuccessful in the Southern Ocean and a failure in Taiji, Japan.  Now they are starting another campaign against the Native Americans in the United States.
On the Columbia River between the states of Washington, and Oregon there are a series of dams.  The first dam before reaching the ocean is the Bonneville Dam.  There are water steps at this dam for the salmon to swim up to mate / spawn further upriver. 

At the bottom of the dam by the steps sea lions have arrived to eat the salmon.  These sea lions are causing a problem in the salmon reproduction cycle and harming the livelihood of the Native Americans further upriver.

The United States government, the states of Oregon, Washington, and a Federal Court of authorized, and approved the eliminating a certain amount of sea lions at the dam’s location.  Meaning it is legal to hunt these sea lions.

Sea Shepherd in an attempt to stop the eliminating of sea lions has initiated a campaign titled “Dam Guardians.”  They are asking volunteers to protest, and document this sea lion hunt.  Basically they are trying to harm the livelihood and food supply to the Native Americans along the river. 

Why is it Sea Shepherd is always targeting indigenous people?
