Why would anyone jump out of a perfectly good airplane? To raise awareness and dollars for dolphins, of course!” ~ Ric O’Barry
Taking the proverb, “two is company” to heart, Ric will now be joining Game of Thrones star and Dolphin Project Ambassador Maisie Williams in a skydive for dolphins. Ric’s 76th birthday is on October 14, so he felt this was a great way to celebrate the occasion.
Together on October 17, they will jump out of an airplane at 15,000ft to raise awareness and funds for Dolphin Project. Maisie’s original jump was rescheduled due to inclement weather, but, no matter the date, she is hoping to inspire others to think outside the box to bring the plight of captive dolphins to the masses.
Skydiving is something I have done before and enjoyed so much, so I thought, why not do it for a good cause? Doing wild things for charity brings more attention to topics I feel are really important.” ~ Maisie Williams
Your support couldn’t come at a more crucial time. With our Cove Monitors on the ground in Taiji, Japan for the next six months, funds are urgently needed for us to continue documenting the dolphin drive hunts, for the rest of the world to see.
