VIDEO update from Japan; How you can help

SaveJapanDolphins.org and THE COVE have many friends and extended family in Japan. Our thoughts and prayers are with them throughout this ongoing crisis.
Many of you know that we also had volunteers just a few miles from the epicenter of the earthquake. They witnessed the entire town of Otsuchi reduced to rubble in a matter of minutes. SaveJapanDolphins.org’s Brian Barnes did two interviews with CNN. Watch here:

They made it out safely, in no small part due to the overwhelming kindness of the Japanese people they met with along the way. Those people now face continued loss and an uncertain future.

We are dedicated to protecting dolphins and whales, but now is the time for us all to help our dear friends in Japan. As I’ve said from the beginning of our campaign, we are not against Japan or the Japanese people. Our Campaign is not about hate, but about helping dolphins and the people.

We’ve compiled a list of organizations in Japan, or with close connections. If you can, please donate:
