Sea Shepherd
A firefighter and the sea

Michael Rauch, a professional firefighter from Frankfurt am Main, pursues a wide range of interests alongside his great passion for firefighting: from his work as a professional vehicle and emergency vehicle photographer to his active engagement with Sea Shepherd Deutschland e.V. For this organization, which opposes illegal industrial fishing, Michael spent 5 months on board. By the coast of Nigeria, together with armed soldiers, he monitored the commercial fishermen, largely by night. Often, catch quotas were exceeded by enormous amounts, right up to and including illegal industrial catches. As a firefighter, Michael Rauch brings first and foremost his expertise in fire prevention and firefighting with him on board. He actively collects equipment and material donations for Sea Shepherd, because even if it is for a good cause, a fire on board a ship is one of the most dangerous situations there is. We at TEXPORT® support Michael and the crew of the Sea Shepherd and are pleased to provide them with personally tailored protective clothing.
