Dolphin Project is a non-profit charitable organization, dedicated to the welfare and protection of dolphins worldwide. Founded by Richard (Ric) O’Barry on Earth Day, April 22, 1970, the organization aims to educate the public about captivity and, where feasible, retire and/or release captive dolphins.
Dolphin Project has achieved many important victories for dolphins over the years. They brought the world’s attention to the brutal drive hunts taking place along the coast of Taiji, Japan, as seen in the 2009 Academy Award-winning feature documentary “The Cove,” they successfully negotiated for an end to the dolphin slaughter in the Solomon Islands and continue to raise awareness that captivity is a cruel and outdated practice.
