Our Mission

Dolphin Project is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to the welfare and protection of dolphins worldwide. Founded by Richard (Ric) O'Barry on Earth Day, April 22, 1970, the organization aims to educate the public about captivity and, where feasible, free captive dolphins. Our work was featured in the Academy Award-winning documentary The Cove and the Animal Planet television series Blood Dolphin$.

The mission of the Dolphin Project is to end dolphin exploitation and slaughter, as dolphins are routinely captured, harassed, slaughtered and sold into captivity around the world – all in the name of profit. Dolphin Project works not only to halt these slaughters but also to rehabilitate captive dolphins, investigate and advocate for economic alternatives to dolphin exploitation and to put a permanent end to dolphin captivity.
