Dolphin Project Rocks San Francisco

What an absolutely incredible night at the world-famous venue, The Fillmore, during the Dolphin Project Benefit with the legendary Kings of Chaos.

Matt Sorum and the Kings of Chaos came to our rescue. With much unfinished work in the Solomon Islands, Taiji and Indonesia, it’s imperative we can continue the good fight!” ~ Ric O’Barry

A special thanks to Avalon for providing ground transportation.

AND, a very special THANK YOU to all those who supported the Dolphin Project in our efforts to help dolphins worldwide. This is – and has always been – our mandate, since our inception on Earth Day, 1970. With September 1 fast approaching, heralding our return to the cove made famous by the Academy Award-winning movie “The Cove,” your support couldn’t be more needed, or appreciated.

About Cara Sands

View All Posts

It might be true that we don't recall many moments from our early years. However, Cara's first memory of a dolphin had her begging her parents to ask the trainer to let the dolphin go! The problem with captivity was evident to her, even as a 4 year-old child.

A writer by trade, Cara has researched, investigated and documented dolphins suffering in captivity. From documenting dolphins incarcerated in buildings, cut-off from fresh air, sunlight and normal socialization to researching cases of animals imprisoned in solitary confinement, Cara is a dedicated dolphin welfare advocate.

It is her belief that education equals empowerment. The more information shared, the better our choices and knowledge of how to act as a positive and respectful voice for dolphins across the world.

Cara is based out of Canada and makes time whenever possible to observe dolphins in their natural environments. She is writing her first fiction novel but knowing her, the marine world will play a prominent role in her book!

"The use of animals for entertainment is nothing more than an abuse of dominance. Some of the most sentient species on the planet have been exploited to incomprehensible levels, all due to their inherent benevolence. Ironic, considering that we turn to the abused themselves for displays of humanity."
