Ric O’Barry, dolphin trainer turned dolphin activist, is known throughout the world for the award-winning documentary The Cove and his continuing presence for the dolphins in Taiji, Japan. Now, he will be honored for his work with the prestigious Bambi Award in Germany.

According to Save Japan Dolphins, the ceremony will be broadcast live to 5 million viewers as O’Barry is honored with the award, given to “people who have had an enduring effect on audiences and the public and have made the world a better place.” The activist will be honored for his work with Save Japan Dolphins and Earth Island Institute as well as The Cove, which won the 2010 Oscar for Best Documentary and has won more film festival awards than any other documentary.

Mark Palmer of Save Japan Dolphins says “While Mr. O’Barry is pleased to be receiving the award, more important is the chance to reach such a wide audience with his message: Don’t buy a ticket to a captive dolphin show or swim with captive dolphins! Dolphins should be free and left to live their lives in the wild.”

O’Barry is also in some very famous company. Previous Bambi Award winners include Bill Clinton, Queen Rania of Jordan, Kate WinsletMeg Ryan, Tom Cruise, Jennifer Lopez, Keanu ReevesBritney Spears, Orlando Bloom, and Sarah Jessica Parker.
