Advance Praise for 'The Voice of the Dolphins':
Every movement has its genesis, a point where an action seeds an awareness that blossoms into inspiration that evolves into a crusade. In the Seventies, filmmaker Hardy Jones began to focus his eye on the dolphins, in a journalistic odyssey that first exposed the atrocities at Iki and Taiji in Japan, giving birth to this global campaign whose voice has become viral, global and compelling. Hardy's legacy will be a future for these magnificent and intelligent living treasures of the sea. – CAPTAIN PAUL WATSON, founder Sea Shepherd Conservancy Society, Whale Wars.
Hardy Jones has written a book that takes us through the phenomenal, almost unimaginable, world of dolphins in the wild and his thirty-year efforts to protect dolphins from the brutal hand of dolphin hunters and ocean contamination. - TED DANSON, actor, member board of directors Oceana, co-founder BlueVoice.org.
