Photo Gifts that Inspire and Protect
I have no doubt that images are worth 1,000 words when I look at this stunning photograph of a dolphin in the crystalline waters of its natural habitat off the coast of California.
Photos like these inspire me to keep working to protect wildlife.

And when I see these bottlenose dolphins in the Gulf of Mexico, I can almost feel the water and imagine their joy in leaping through the waves together. The pair of dolphins also remind me of what is at stake when pollution harms our waters.
In the some areas of the Gulf of Mexico, dolphins are still dying in high numbers and suffering symptoms that suggest exposure to oil–two and a half years after BP’s Deepwater Horizon rig exploded and sent more than 200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf.
The fight is not over for dolphins in the Gulf of Mexico–and images like these remind me of why I fight for wildlife.
