BENEFITING: Ric O'Barry's Dolphin Project, Inc.

ORGANIZER: Ollie

EVENT DATE: Sep 09, 2015

THE STORY:

In September 2015, I will take on a huge cycling endurance challenge across Japan to raise awareness and funds for Ric O’Barry’s Dolphin Project. The work Ric and his team do is truly inspiring; to end the captivity, live trade and cruel slaughter of dolphins around the world. I really want to help educate people about what goes on in aquariums, swim with dolphin shows and the way cetaceans are cruelly exploited for money and greed. The brutal Taiji dolphin drives in Japan are one of the many places around the world dolphins are captured or slaughtered. The oscar-winning film ‘The Cove’ (a must watch!) exposes what really goes on here, with most Japanese people completely unaware of the cruelty. I am aim to meet and speak to many people on my challenge to show them what goes on in Taiji, to educate them but respect their culture. Most Japanese people don’t eat dolphin meat and are disgusted when they hear about Taiji. I also hope to reach many, many more people around the world. The ride covers 3,600km over 21 days, climbing 175,000ft during typhoon season. I’ll spend one day to help as a Cove Monitor when I arrive in Taiji, another climbing the summit of Mt Fuji. I’ll ride completely solo and unsupported and cannot wait to start! Please help by donating to this great cause, all your donations do great things.

I recently "swam with dolphins" off Honduras. It broke my heart when I noticed that these lovely animals are held in captivity. I was just plain ignorant. Ric, you are absolutely amazing. God bless you and look out for your safety. I can hardly keep from crying. Thank you, thank you, thank you... 3 years ago
