BENEFITING: Ric O'Barry's Dolphin Project, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Aug 20, 2016
I am by no means a professional cyclist (except in my head) but I've been out riding quite a bit this summer and I'm really excited to make this my first ride for a cause. I've set a modest goal and hope that you will all help me to reach and exceed it. Anyone who knows me knows how important this issue is to me. Despite the popularity of films like The Cove and Blackfish, every year we continue to see thousands (the latest figure I've seen is upward of 20,000) of cetaceans killed in drive hunts. These drive hunts are primarily motivated by the entertainment industry who violently capture dolphins and whales for shows around the world. But we can end the slaughter! Take the pledge not to support marine parks and aquariums with captive dolphins and whales and help me raise money for Ric O'Barry's Dolphin Project as they raise awareness, monitor the cove, and work tirelessly to end drive hunts and dolphin captivity.
