Gulf Marine Mammal Research Update

Odyssey in Gulf
Odyssey in Gulf

It's been over 3 years since BP's oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, eventually leaking more than 200 million gallons of oil and unleashing the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history.

According to a recent report that analyzed the spill's true toll on wildlife, its estimated that about 6,000 sea turtles, a staggering 82,000 birds, and 26,000 dolphins and whales were likely harmed by the spill and every day it seems more and more dolphins are being found dead in the region.

Scientific evidence now shows that the recent massive dolphin die off in the Gulf was a direct result of this oil spill.

After 3 summers of collecting data, we now have over 250 marine mammal biosies and we are currently analyzing all the new data while we prep the research vessel Odyssey for its 4th voyage later this summer.

With your continued support, we plan to return to the Gulf every summer over the next decade to document what is happening there, document the contaminate levels we find there, and continue this critical work. We thank you all for your support!

Campaign Update

Our International Spokesperson Hayden Panettiere
Our International Spokesperson Hayden Panettiere

Hi Dolphin, Whale & Ocean Lovers,

It has been 6 years since our international spokesperson and star of ABC's hit series "Nashville", Hayden Panettiere, put her life on the line by paddling into the blood filled waters of Taiji's notorious dolphin killing cove and was accosted by the dolphin fisherman causing an international media frenzy which helped raise awareness to this cruel and needless slaughter.

Unfortunately, the dolphin killing by Japanese fisherman still continues in Taiji and we need your support now more than ever to help stop it so please consider helping our cause by donating today.

All proceeds go to our Save the Whales Again! campaign so please check out our updates below to see how we are putting your generosity towards saving dolphins, whales, and our oceans.


Iceland Update

Iceland is threatening to kill over 150 endangered fin whales this summer!

For the past 2 years, we have been working closely with the President's Chief Advisor on the Environment, Nancy Sutley, and the acting US Commissioner to the International Whaling Commission (IWC), Ryan Wulff, to use diplomatic and economic pressure against Iceland to stop whaling.

Even with this pressure, Iceland continues to slaughter minke whales and now they are threatening to start killing endangered fin whales again after a two year hiatus.

We presently are planning events to put the spotlight on Iceland and we need your help and support now more than ever to ensure our success so please donate today!


Norway Update

Norway continues to defy the commercial moratorium on whaling and this year killing over 600 minke whales and has set its 2014 quota to over 1,200 minke whales. Minke whales are the smallest of the great whales and are very beautiful and intelligent creatures who are also very curious and interactive with human divers. Norway, like Iceland, believes that no one cares about their illegal whaling activities but we have news for them: We do! We are currently planning events to shine the spotlight on Norway as well so we need your help and support now more than ever. 

Japan Update

Not only is Japan continuing to kill dolphins in Taiji, they continue to illegally kill whales in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.  We are working closely with the Obama Administration to use diplomatic and economic sanctions against Japan until they end their dolphin and whale hunts.

We will be returning to Japan later this summer so we need your support now more than ever.

All of us here are committed to doing everything we can to help Save the Whales Again! and we thank you all for your continuing support and Happy Holidays!

Sincerely,


Hayden Panettiere
