"The Dolphin Defender," Hardy Jones (co-founder with actor Ted Dansen of Blue Voice), appears on Internet radio's Full Power Living on Thursday, October 26, 2006 at 9 a.m. on World Talk Radio to discuss "What Dolphins Tell Us About Ourselves and The State of Our Oceans."

Hardy Jones will appear live on Internet radio’s Full Power Living on Thursday, October 26, 2006 at 9 a.m. PT on worldtalkradio dot com to discuss “What Dolphins Tell Us About Ourselves and the State of Our Oceans.” “I think we can learn a lot about ourselves just by learning about dolphins,” proclaims Hardy, known as “The Dolphin Defender.” A filmmaker and former journalist with CBS News and UPI, he has turned his camera into an instrument of conservation. Jones co-founded the Conservation group Blue Voice with actor Ted Dansen.

Hardy Jones says: “The message that I’m trying to bring forward is that dolphins are intelligent, individual creatures just like us. They deserve an unusual level of protection because they are sentient creatures. Increasingly, people are saying they don’t want dolphins killed needlessly….It’s just not right.” Jones did his first filming in 1978, enlightening the world about the large-scale and unnecessary slaughter of thousands of dolphins. Turning his camera into a tool for conservation, Hardy filmed dramatic dolphin hunts. The resulting documentary footage made headlines and sparked international protests. He also discovered the effects of chemical pollution on dolphins and orcas, realizing that threats to these marine mammals were threats to the ocean itself, and to us all. Hardy Jones appears live just prior to embarking on his next international project.
