'Blood Dolphins' Star Praises Sea Shepherd, Predicts End Of Commercial Whaling

Lincoln O’Barry has grown up surrounded by dolphins, thanks to his activist dad, Ric O’Barry, and the two even worked on The Cove together. But their latest project is an Animal Planet show called “Blood Dolphins,” which was nominated at last night’s 2011 Genesis Awards.

We caught up with the dolphin activist on the red carpet and were able to score an exclusive interview. “Last year we were here supporting The Cove, and this year we’re back supporting ‘Blood Dolphins,’” he said.

Then we asked Lincoln about the early end to this year’s whaling season, and what he made of that. “It’s great that it ended early, you know, it’s all part of that exterior pressure on Japan. Also, the dolphin hunt in Taiji ended a month early as well,” Lincoln stated. “I have a feeling with commercial whaling, like what you see on Sea Shepherd, that’s probably over, because that’s a heavily government subsidized industry.” He then further explained, “So, I can’t see them subsidizing something that loses money every year when they’re going to be in a money crunch. But coastal whaling’s another issue.”

With work still to be done, we asked Lincoln if he has any plans to continue his efforts in Taiji, where his groundbreaking work on the documentary The Cove took place. “In the next couple of months we’re organizing a huge concert here [Los Angeles] for relief efforts for those towns [Taiji],” he said. but if you’re looking for ways to help sooner, Lincoln told us, “Right now on dolphinproject.org there’s a list of links that you can go to to help.”

We’ll keep you posted on the concert details as they come!
