Dolphin rescue

Ric O’Barry, Taiji, JapanDear Friends and Supporters,On February 5, 2016 I was wrongly deported from Japan. Dolphin Project’s legal team has been vigorously fighting this order ever since, and now, almost four years and ten months later, the decision of the Tokyo High Court to revoke the deportation order by the Ministry of Justice is now effective. I am free to return to Japan!It is very rare for a Westerner to beat the Japanese government in a court of law. The reason we did is simple: these were trumped up charges. It was yet another attempt to silence me for speaking out against the annual Taiji dolphin slaughter. It’s a huge victory and could very well help others in the future.I would like to thank each and every person who has fought on my behalf. Your tweets, emails, calls and donations made a difference! As soon as it is safe and permitted to do so, I look forward to visiting Japan once again. Be a Dolphin DefenderAs most of you are likely aware, 2020 marks 50 years that Dolphin Project has been defending dolphins worldwide. But we can’t do this lifesaving work without you. YOU are our backbone. Every dollar donated is a dollar for a dolphin in need. Every social media post shared and re-tweeted is a voice for the voiceless.I’m asking that we come together during the season’s greatest time to give. December 1 is Giving Tuesday – a global day to do good. Please consider making a donation in support of our work and know that your act of generosity might very well inspire someone else to do good, too! Please watch your IN BOX the morning of December 1 for ways to give. We have something special for you, too, so be sure to check your email and social media feeds on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.Donate NowDespite the uncertainty of the world, we are continuing to run our international programs including documenting and live streaming for the duration of the dolphin hunting season in Taiji, Japan, and caring for our three rescued dolphins, Rocky, Rambo and Johnny in Bali, Indonesia while keeping the Umah Lumba Rehabilitation, Release and Retirement Center running seamlessly.
