She may play a blood-sucking, pumps-wearing vamp on HBO’s hit series True Blood, but outside of acting Kristin Bauer is all about preserving life — especially as it relates to threatened marine life.

The actress has been heavily involved with the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and recently recorded a new PSA for their “Tails for Whales” campaign. Check it out below.

    Well hooley-dooley. Another celebrity bimbo sprouting anti-whaling nonsense.

    Reminds me of those beauty pageants where the models stand up and talk about how they would like world peace etc. Mindless, feel-good, generic garbage.

    If this girl really wants to do something positive about whaling, she should be lobbying for the compromise deal currently under discussion in the IWC to allow sustainable commercial whaling.

    • From MN, with hope…

      Just another threat to your well being isn’t it? Is she wanted to do that ‘feel-good, generic garbage’ she would’ve gone with something that everyone knows exists, like climate change, or world hunger, not whaling. And no type of whaling is sustainable. Also, in case you didn’t notice, she also talked about the litter in the oceans, and ships striking whales.

    Well, Kimitake, you’re right: Kristin Bauer IS beautiful. She also has more smarts and more compassion in her little finger than you do in your whole body. Your hatred for women is shameful, and your support of the so-called “compromise” at the IWC is just as bad. This ugly deal would legalize commercial whaling in exchange for almost nothing on the part of Japan and other pro-whaling nations. It could put whales back on the path to extinction. Anyone who wants to learn how to stop this horrific sellout should got to

      Well said ben, and who the hell is this Kimitake Hiraoka anyway to be categorically labeling Kristin Bauer a bimbo? does this person even know her? Sometimes, the rudeness of people amazes me. And MN above is right, no kind of whaling is sustainable. “Sustainable whaling” just seems to me like a horrible travesty of the green movement and just plain, weird oxymoron.
