Heldenplatz, Vienna, December 4th, 2015: #StayWild – a statement by Viennese Contemporary Artists Axel Just and Benjamin Filitz together with Ric O’Barry, former ‘Flipper’ trainer and main protagonist of Oscar winning documentary THE COVE. This art event is a call for dialogue with Japanese decision makers on ending dolphin drive hunts. Representatives of the Japanese embassy in Vienna however refused to accept this invitation for talks.
The action is an initiative by Viennese campaigns agency SHIFTING VALUES in cooperation with international marine conservation organisation OceanCare to support Ric O’Barry’s DolphinProject.net.
