Brosnan call to save the whales

Brosnan call to save the whales

source ; people.com

As British spy James Bond, Pierce Brosnan battled many fictional bad guys – but now the actor is fighting for a good cause: He wants to help save the whales.

In a new PSA for the International Fund for Animal Welfare, Brosnan directly addresses President Barack Obama, telling him that "whales face more threats today than ever before" from everything from pollution to professional whalers to climate change.

"As a candidate you promised to end illegal whaling, and we applauded your leadership," says Brosnan. "But recent reports reveal your administration supports an international proposal, which gives Japan, Iceland and Norway the license to kill whales."

Save the Dolphins!!! "the cove"

by Keely & Pierce Brosnan

There is a cove in Taiji, Japan that is completely off limits to the public. Activists have long suspected that dolphins and porpoises were entering the cove and not coming out, but there was little evidence of what took place in those closely guarded waters. Film director Louie Psihoyos and prominent dolphin advocate Ric O’Barry assembled a team of activists, divers and special effects experts to embark a on covert mission to infiltrate the cove in the dead of night. It sounds like the plot of a Hollywood spy thriller; but in this film the danger is real.

We have long been passionate about marine mammal protection. After watching The Cove, we were astonished to discover that more than than 20,000 dolphins and porpoises are slaughtered in Taiji each year, and that their meat — which contains toxic levels of mercury — is sold to consumers and in grocery stores across Japan. Without this kind of investigative journalism, the plight of dolphins and the safety of some of Japan’s seafood may not have been adequately reported. This powerful and moving film is an urgent cry for help — and now that the public finally knows the truth, we must demand change.
