Maisie Williams is on a mission to save dolphins from hunters and here’s her latest update
Maisie Williams is on a serious mission to save dolphins from being slaughtered by hunters. The Game of Thrones actress is currently in the small Japanese town of Taiji in support of The Dolphin Project, and she’s desperately urging everyone to stop going to dolphin shows.
Ric O’Barry started The Dolphin Project in protest against the Taiji dolphin kill. O’Barry starred in The Cove, a documentary that shows the awful reality of dolphins being herded into an inlet in Taiji and being bludgeoned to death.
The murders of so many beautiful and helpless dolphins is incredibly disturbing and something that needs to stop. And that’s why it’s so important for celebrities like Williams to dedicate time and energy on spreading awareness.
Williams has been documenting her trip on Instagram. Her latest post is a video updating her followers on the current situation.
"STAY TUNED. We are making a change. @dolphin_project #takethepledge," she captioned the video.
Williams says the best way to stop the capture and killings of dolphins is to stop buying tickets to marine shows.
"These animals travel the ocean," Williams told The Washington Post. "That’s what they explore daily. No tank will be big enough. No tank will ever be deep enough, ever be exciting enough."
We admire her courage and willingness to stand up for what she believes in.
"It was something that just struck a chord in my heart," she said. "And I’m a firm believer that, if there is something that you really want to stand up and fight for, then you should. And with everyone doing their own little bit for what they believe in, hopefully together we can make the world a better place."
We couldn’t agree more.
