This wonderful post by my friend Barbara Napoles says it all about the Beluga NOAA hearings. The post includes video of Ric O’Barry and a recording of Barbara’s speech to the panel. A very worthy read with a take action link. NOAA/NMFS are still accepting comments on this important issue.

The team from Save the Blood Dolphins arrives in Washington, DC full of energy and ready to speak at the NOAA-NMFS public hearings but first we had to stop by the Japanese, Indonesia Embassies and drop off the signatures for the petitions “Stop the Annual Slaughter of Dolphins” with over 9,823 signatures.
As we arrived at the Japanese Embassy a strong gust of wind blew the officers papers away from his podium, Mila and I helped him picked them up. We made a new friend. (Thank you God of the Wind – Aeolus)
The petition “Dolphins Don’t Belong in Traveling Circus” with over 23,500 signatures also delivered to the Indonesian Embassy.
We are very thankful to each and everyone that took the time to sign these petitions. Then we head out to Silver Springs, Maryland, The NOAA – National Marine Fisheries Service and their Public hearings.
For the first time…
