Gojira is now Brigitte Bardot

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, June 2011:
LA CIOTAT, France–The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society
fast interceptor and scout vessel that pursued Japanese whalers in
the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary in 2010-2011 as the Gojira,
Japanese for “Godzilla,” was on May 25, 2011 renamed in honor of
French actress-turned-activist Brigitte Bardot. The owners of the
Gojira and Godzilla film monster trademarks had objected to further
Sea Shepherd use of the names. Launched as the Cable & Wireless
Adventurer, the vessel now called the Brigitte Bardot in 1998 set a
record for powered craft by circling the world in 74 days.
