Empowering us to help preserve and protect our oceans!
BlueVoice is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) ocean conservation organization co-founded in 2000 by Hardy Jones and Ted Danson. The mission of BlueVoice is to protect dolphins, save whales and other marine mammals, and raise awareness about toxic chemicals including mercury, PCBs, and organic pollutants in our precious and vital oceans. BlueVoice draws on the films produced by Hardy Jones/Julia Whitty Productions. Their film If Dolphins Could Talk inspired the Heinz Company to no longer accept tuna caught by surrounding dolphins with nets. HardyJones is a former journalist with CBS News and UPI and has been making television documentaries about the oceans and marine mammals for over 20 years. Ted Danson is familiar to most of us as a film and television star and highly respected ocean activist.
