This page was created to augment The Voice of the Dolphins, my book on 33 years work with dolphins and whales. It covers extraordinary underwater encounters with dolphins, killer whales and sperm whales, efforts to stop the slaughter of dolphins in Japan and in the tuna fishery and links between marine toxins and disease in humans and dolphins. It also tells of my diagnosis of multiple myeloma, a form of blood cancer connected to chemical contamination and the astonishing genetic links that bind humans and dolphins in a shared fate. Finally, it points to desperately needed and totally doable ways to end using the oceans as a chemical waste dump.

About Hardy Jones
Hardy Jones has spent more than thirty years investigating and working to save dolphins. He began unique research on dolphins in the Bahamas in 1978 that has led to four internationally broadcast films and many awards. In 1979 He broke the story of the slaughter of dolphins at Iki Island, Japan which led to international outrage and helped shut down the killing of dolphins in several villages in Japan. Since then Hardy has worked at Futo and Taiji to stop the last vestiges of slaughter on Japan’s main island. Hardy has covered the increasing levels of toxic chemicals in the oceans and their connection to disease in dolphins and human beings. Hardy is a former journalist with CBS News. He attended Tulane University and studied law at Columbia University under a CBS Foundation Fellowship.
