From Dolphin Trainer to Dolphin Savior
Ric O'Barry started his career capturing and training dolphins for the Miami Seaquarium and through the 1960s became the head trainer for the five dolphins who played Flipper on the popular American TV show.
Everything Changed in 1969
Kathy was Ric's favorite dolphin, and the main dolphin in the TV show.
But in 1969, she did not resurface for air and died in Ric's arms.

Having worked closely with dolphins, Ric knew that capturing, displaying and training dolphins to perform tricks was wrong. More than that, he wanted to do something about it.
The Dolphin Project Was Born on Earth Day in 1970
On Earth Day in 1970 he founded The Dolphin Project, an organization dedicated to educating the public about the plight of dolphins in captivity. He also pioneered work to demonstrate rehabilitation and release as a viable alternative for captive dolphins.

O’Barry has since rescued and released over twenty-five captive dolphins in Haiti, Colombia, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Brazil, The Bahamas and the United States.

For the last 40 plus years O’Barry has spoken about the harmful effects of captivity on dolphins at lectures and conferences around the world. In 1991 in recognition of his contribution to the protection of dolphins, O’Barry received an Environmental Achievement Award, presented by the US Committee for the United Nations Environmental Program and helped with the film "The Cove."

Dolphin Project is the longest-running anti-captivity dolphin welfare organization in the world. Their mission today remains the same as it did in 1970: Let’s protect dolphins together!

A Revolutionary Way Of Making Socks

Bakdrop is setting a new standard for image quality by using Direct To Garment Digital Printing. This allows us to produce socks with high definition images, seamless designs, and which maintain their beauty when worn. Our process also enables us to use a variety of materials, such as bamboo and to make only the socks we need, reducing waste.

Bamb… oooh They’re Soft!

It all starts with Bamboo, a sustainable and fast growing plant, which is then transformed into Rayon and blended in with Nylon and Elastane. We bring it all together in premium 200-needle machines that knit durable, denser socks that feel and fit great. The toe and heel are hand linked then reinforced to make the inside of your socks completely seamless.
