"After their courageous battles with the Japanese whaling fleet to protect the whales in Australia's Antarctic waters, this is a great chance for us all to welcome them all back home to Hobart," said Senator Brown.
"I hope people will come down to Princes Wharf next Saturday morning or better still for those who can, join the flotilla to welcome the Sea Shepherd ship back up the Derwent," Senator Brown said.
A reception and speeches by Senator Brown and Sea Shepherd Captain Paul Watson will be held at Princes Wharf number 2, 11am, Saturday March 6.
