He stared in the Oscar-winning movie about dolphin-killing in Japan with Hayden Panettiere, but Ric O'Barry's fight against dolphin hunting isn't over.
Recently Cove star traveled to the tiny island Miyakejima - a place were dolphins are are only used for tourism (and never killed for soup)! The actor gushed over the dolphin paradise, saying:
"It's very encouraging to see people celebrating dolphins, respecting dolphins, and I'm all for that. We support them all the way."
You can support the dolphin loving people of Miyakejima by visiting the island of 2,700 people south of Tokyo. O'Barry hopes that a rise in tourism will encourage eastern islands to adopt the same dolphin-friendly policy.
Right now the famous dolphin activist is headed back to the same town in Taiji that his notorious documentary The Cove was shot, to protest the annual dolphin hunt that's set to starts Sept. 1.
