“Bones” star and all-around awesome person Emily Deschanel is back fighting for the rights of animals – this time narrating a video for the Humane Society of the United States that highlights the plights of marine animals.
“I think that people invariably respond to the bare facts and that’s why I hope this video will make viewers, most importantly, the delegates at CITES, sit up and take note of the shocking numbers of marine animals that are being decimated. Not only is this an animal protection concern, but it is also of immense importance to the overall health of our oceans,” says Deschanel.
According to the release, a delegation from The HSUS and its global affiliate Humane Society International is at the meeting, championing more than 40 proposals to provide greater protections for wildlife. So far this week, we’ve seen public declarations by the Prime Minister of Thailand to close that country’s ivory trade, a plea for action by Prince William for greater protections for elephants, and pressure against Google to stop advertising products made from elephants and endangered whales. And now this video.
A truly inspiring wave of support for animal activism!
