Red Hot Chili Peppers are always ready to rally their fans when there’s a cause that needs to be addressed, and the group is not happy that Sea Shepherd Conservation Society leader, Captain Paul Watson, has been arrested.

The band state in a new posting at their website, “The arrest of Captain Watson in Germany we believe is in part due to the fact that he uncovered an illegal shark finning operation in Costa Rica. Red Hot Chili Peppers are longtime supporters of Sea Shepherd, Captain Watson, and the wonderful work they do to save our ocean and protecting marine wildlife globally.”

They encourage their fans to visit Sea Shepherd’s website to learn more about how to support Captain Watson and the organization. In addition, they’ll have a Sea Shepherd table at stops on their 2012 North American tour where fans can also investigate the organization and how you can provide support.

Red Hot Chili Peppers will be one of the headliners for this weekend’s Hangout Festival, and currently have North American shows booked in every month all the way up to November. After Saturday’s performance, the band will break away from the tour to shoot a new video in New Orleans on Monday.
