Actress Lucy Lawless is putting up a fight against environmental hazards. She is being sentenced to 120 hours of community service and fines after reportedly staging a protest against Shell oil company aboard an oil-drilling ship.

The judge ordered Lawless and seven other Greenpeace activists to pay 651 New Zealand dollars ($547) in costs to a port company and complete 120 hours of community service after pleading guilty to trespassing charges, Yahoo! News reports.

This isn’t her first feat of heroism in the name of going green. She and six other activists climbed a drilling tower on the Noble Discoverer vessel to protest oil exploration in the Arctic last February.

Shell Todd Oil Services, which had chartered the ship, sought 650,000 New Zealand dollars ($545,000) from the protesters for reparation.
