A Hawai’i-based waterproof action camera manufacturer, Intoya, LLC, has announced its partnership with one of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s USA teams. Intoya will provide the conservation group with a ConneX System to support the maritime research efforts aboard the R/V Martin Sheen.

“Our current mission is to document endangered marine mammals, with the goal of contributing to scientific efforts to save the species,” said Sea Shepherd campaign photographer and producer Carolina Castro. “The species we are trying to document are very difficult to film, so the INTOVA ConneX is perfect for us, as it permits our crew to capture HD footage underwater without concern about battery life.”

The all-new device provides the ability to perform with uninterrupted power, thanks to its innovation cable system. Users above-water are provided a live video feed on their preferred screen.

“Not only is the functionality of the ConneX system a perfect match for Sea Shepherd’s ongoing operations, but their worldwide marine conservation efforts are initiatives which Intova proudly supports,” said Joe Ganahl, Intova’s president.

Intoya’s action camera provides Sea Shepherd with two functional needs: live imagery from a waterproof camera and freedom of battery-life constraints. Set-up is also made flexible with the ConneX cable lengths.


“As a Hawai’i-based watersports company, we are deeply committed to marine conservation, and we look for every way possible to promote the safe enjoyment and thoughtful preservation of marine life and habitats worldwide,” Ganahl continued. “Intova is proud to play a small part in supporting Sea Shepherd’s pioneering work.”
