The Empire State Building changed its colors this weekend to highlight the continued tragedy of the dolphin slaughter in Japan. As mentioned earlier, the owner of the iconic landmark was inspired to get involved after seeing the Academy-Award winning documentary “The Cove”.

The event, organized by professional race car driver and Save Japan Dolphins volunteer Leilani Munter, was attended by Ric O’Barry, actor John LeguizamoThe Cove Director Louie Psihoyos, and photographed by Deborah Bassett.

“We are working to get the word out in Japan, so our story (Louie filmed the entire event) and photos are being prepared in Japanese for distribution to the media there,” wrote O’Barry on his blog. “The ceremony was not an attack on the people of Japan. It was rather a plea for their help in shutting down the Cove.”

“It’s really up to them,” he continued. “We need to let the people of Japan know what is happening in Taiji and other remote ports of Japan, where the government issues permits to kill dolphins for meat – meat that is highly contaminated with mercury and other pollutants.”
