For the Love of Dolphins
On August 17 the Dolphin Project is holding a Tread for Taiji Virtual Race. I will be swimming 1500 metres (not all at once...) to take part in the race and raise funds for the Dolphin Project, a charity whose mission is to end dolphin slaughter and captivity.
Each year a hunt takes place in Taiji, Japan, in which hundreds of dolphins are killed each year as part of the capture process that supplies live dolphins to the aquarium industry. Dolphin Project is there for the six months of the year documenting the hunts. See Ric O'Barry's Dolphin Project (The Cove) for more information on the hunt.
Please TAKE THE PLEDGE not to support captive dolphin entertainment, and donate what you can to my fundraiser to help support their efforts!
