As he’s done many times before in support of marine initiatives, Pierce Brosnan is lending his star power to help pass legislation that would promote international conservation efforts and reduce commercial whaling.

The actor and his wife, Keely, descended upon the new Capitol Visitor Center this week to stump for the International Fund for Animal Welfare. The pair cohosted a cocktail event promoting the marine conservation bill sponsored by Rep. Bill Delahunt (D-Mass.) and Del. Eni Faleomavaega (D-American Samoa). Other celebrities in attendance included Chris Matthews (Hardball) and Goran Visnjic (ER).

Brosnan is hoping that his appeal to help save the whales falls on some sympathetic ears in the new administration. Earlier on Tuesday, Brosnan and the organization met with White House and State Department reps — and mentioned that they’ll be meeting with Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and other legislators later this week to boost the bill. The former 007 has tirelessly worked with organizations like Sea Shepherd, NRDC, and the Whaleman Foundation over the years to help protect and expand marine sanctuaries. Let’s hope these efforts in DC pay off once more.
