Richard (Ric) O’Barry was first recognized in the 1960s for capturing and training the five dolphins that were used in the well-known TV series Flipper. Soon after Kathy, one of the Flipper dolphins, died, according to O’Barry, while in his arms in what he believed was a suicide, he made a radical transition from training dolphins in captivity to assertively combating the captivity industry. O’Barry was featured in The Cove, a film that uses covert techniques to expose the yearly dolphin drive hunting that goes on in Taiji, Japan.

After leaving the Navy, O’Barry began training dolphins in the 1960s with the Miami Seaquarium. It was while working with the Miami Seaquarium that O’Barry was hired to work on the television series Flipper. Though O’Barry admits he readily noticed the remarkable intelligence of the mammals he was working with, he also attests to ignoring this factor when weighing it against the large profit he was making from the show. In his own words,”I was young, I had a glamorous job, I was driving a Porsche and it was easy to do.”

When one of the five Flippers, a female Bottlenose Dolphin named Kathy died, O’Barry could no longer deny what he saw as cruelty and potentially fatal consequences of the captivity industry he had helped to establish. O’Barry maintains that Kathy died in his arms from a form of suicide.

Activism

Directly following Kathy’s death O’Barry released his first dolphin from a sea pen holding off the island of Bimini. Then in 1970, on the first Earth Day, he founded the original Dolphin Project with the primary goal of releasing dolphins from captivity.

O’Barry currently lives in Coconut Grove, Florida and has been fighting against the captivity industry for the past 38 years. In 1989 O’Barry founded the non-profit organization, Dolphin Project Inc., to study Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins in estuarine waters. Since 1989 the organization has successfully documented and surveyed over 850 different individual bottlenose dolphins. In addition, O’Barry has written several books to raise awareness about dolphins in captivity including Behind the Dolphin Smile (1989) and To Free a Dolphin (2000).

In the course of O’Barry’s activities he and his associates have been convicted for violations of the Marine Mammals Protection Act in the US, on the basis that these activities brought life-threatening injuries to dolphins.

O’Barry is the Marine Mammal Specialist for Earth Island Institute and Director of the Save Japan Dolphins coalition. In 2009 he was being sued for $300 million by a dolphinarium in the Dominican Republic for alleged business interference.

The Cove

He also worked on the feature length documentary The Cove, directed by Louie Psihoyos. The 2009 film centers on Taiji, Wakayama in Japan, bringing attention to the hunt of 23,000 dolphins taken there every year.

The Cove utilizes equipment and tactics never previously used by filmmakers in order to obtain footage that the Japanese government refused to allow the film crew to capture.
