Leilani Munter in Taiji
GreenHeroes has been following the news from Leilani Munter on her efforts to halt the dolphin hunt in Taiji.
Leilani is an environmental activist and race car driver. If this seems paradoxical to you, watch our webisode on her. Leilani was inspired to fight for dolphins after watching The Cove, a documentary based on Ric O’Barry‘s work in Taiji.
She’s also a gifted writer, as we’ve seen in her blog posts for SaveJapanDolphins.org and the Huffington Post in which she updates us on the dolphin hunt and her activism on behalf of other environmental causes.
“If only they would turn these dolphin hunting boats into dolphin watching boats,” Leilani Munter, The Cove Continues: Diary From Taiji, Huffington Post, 9/14/11
She also wrote a guest post for GreenHeroes.
Leilani is very active on Twitter. Follow her for updates on her work.
