Blackfish Racing Team
Organized by: Ric O'Barry 's Dolphin Project
Racing to raise awareness about marine mammals in captivity and the annual dolphin slaughter in Taiji, Japan. We are racing for the Ric O'Barry Dolphin Project.
Since the Dolphin Project began on Earth Day -- April 22, 1970, their mission has always been about the welfare and protection of dolphins worldwide. Over the past 44 years they have readapted and released over 20 dolphins back into the wild. They have worked tirelessly to put a permanent end to dolphin captivity. They have worked not only to halt the slaughter of dolphins in countries around the world but also to investigate and advocate for economic alternatives to dolphin hunts. Ric O'Barry's Dolphin Project will continue to lead the worldwide charge to end dolphin exploitation and suffering.
This work has been chronicled in films such as A Fall From Freedom, the Oscar-winning documentary The Cove, and in the Animal Planet mini-series Blood Dolphin$.
This is only possible because of thoughtful contributions from people like you.
