Slash Joins The Fight To End The Dolphin Slaughter

Slash, the lead guitarist for Guns N’ Roses has always been a long time supporter of Ric O’Barry’s Dolphin Project, to end the capture and slaughter of wild dolphins in Taiji, Japan. He has joined the fight to see that this horrible practice stops once and for all.

Between Guns N’ Roses Matt Sorum’s passion for saving dolphins, Slash’s obsession with saving both dolphins and elephants, and Axl’s obsession with saving tigers and giraffes, you have to wonder if some sort of animal cause, might be just the thing to put a concert together. That’s just what happened back in 2015 for Ric O’barry’s Dolphin Project.

Ric O’Barry’s Dolphin Project is a non-profit charitable organization, dedicated to the welfare and protection of dolphins worldwide. Founded by our good friend Ric O’Barry on Earth Day, April 22, 1970. The organization aims to educate the public about captivity and, where feasible, free captive dolphins.

The mission of the Dolphin Project is to end dolphin exploitation and slaughter, as dolphins are routinely captured, harassed, slaughtered and sold into captivity around the world – all in the name of profit. Dolphin Project works not only to halt these slaughters but also to rehabilitate captive dolphins, investigate and advocate for economic alternatives to dolphin slaughter exploitation and to put a permanent end to dolphin captivity.

Slash called the hunt a “deplorable” situation. He urged people outside Japan to put pressure on the country to end the practice.

We stand with Slash and Ric in support of the Dolphin Project to take action and speak out to end the Dolphin slaughter for good.
