Blue Living Video Project!

We want to include you in our next project! We are looking for video submissions from people all over the world who are fighting for cleaner oceans and cetacean freedom. We are going to be creating a sharable “viral” video that will educate the general public about the state of our waterways and oceans. We encourage you to research the topic you are passionate about and provide information that will help raise awareness.

unnamedThings to consider:

  1. State your first name only and where you live (optional).
  2. Hold a sign that articulates what you care about. Some examples include: plastic pollution, over-fishing, run-off pollution, wild capture of cetaceans, shark finning, drive-hunt fisheries etc.
  3. Express clearly what you are trying to stop. For example, “My name is Jane, I live in New York and I want to stop shark finning now! Millions of sharks are killed senselessly just for their fins, thrown back into the ocean still alive. Entire shark populations are dwindling because they are not able to recuperate their numbers”
  4. Film your video in a quiet space with good lighting. Speak clearly and proudly so that we are able to add closed captioning on YouTube.

Please submit your videos to our email info@finsandfluke.org and be sure to title your email “Blue living video”. We will need you to include in the body of your email that you are giving us permission to use your video in our project. Submissions are due by August 31st at midnight pacific time.  We look forward to reviewing your submissions and will include as many as possible!

Alex Lewis-Dorer

Alex Lewis-Dorer is a 27 year old activist. Having watched The Cove during its initial release and learning about the capture practices and the dangers of captivity, she felt compelled to stand up and voice her concerns to others. Since then she has dedicated her time and energy to working towards educating others about ocean conversation. In 2012 Alex joined forces with Wendy Brunot to have a lone killer whale named Shouka, moved to an alternate marine park to be with other orcas. Following the news of a planned Beluga Whale import, Alex hosted a protest in Atlanta In July 2012 together with Free the Atlanta 11 and GARP which attracted significant attention to the issues behind such an initiative. Alex has also played a large part in being a strong voice against Marineland, Canada, holding a demo at the facility in May 2014 in honor of Kiska, Canada’s last captive whale. She has dedicated much of her time to bringing attention to Marineland’s suffering animals. She also voices her concerns over many other captive marine faculties and lends her hand on campaigns regarding this issue. Alex’s love is not limited to cetaceans – she sees the beauty in all marine life. She is excited to be part of the movement that will end captivity for all marine mammals. Alex is also a proud team member for Ric O’Barry’s Dolphin Project.
