Review for BLUEVOICE ORG, Petaluma, CA, USA
Blue Voice is a small organization with giant accomplishments in the field of marine mammal conservation. I have known BlueVoice founder, Hardy Jones, since 1978 and was with him in 1979 when he became the first non-Japanese observer at Iki Island during the dolphin massacre there. His reports created international awareness of the plight of dolphins in Japan. Since then, Hardy has returned to Japan almost yearly as he continues to lobby for marine mammal protection in that county as well as other countries across the globe. I have never know someone more dedicated to a cause.
BlueVoice operates with very low overhead while the great majority of funds raised by the organization are used in direct actions promoting marine mammal conservation. An accomplished filmmaker, Hardy has deployed his media skills to promote ocean conservation via numerous high profile television documentaries, magazine publications, and books. The BlueVoice.org website has enormous reach and has been effective in shaping marine conservation initiatives worldwide. Hardy's work is important, imaginative, effective, and BlueVoice is certainly deserving of support from any global citizen concerned about the health of our oceans and especially the plight of marine mammals.
