NATURE | The Dolphin Defender | Preview | PBS Nearly three decades ago, filmmaker Hardy Jones became fascinated by wild dolphins. Even though many said it couldn't be done, he set out to film these sleek sea mammals in the open ocean. Eventually, Jones turned his camera into a tool for conservation. He filmed dramatic dolphin hunts, and the documentary footage made headlines and sparked international protests. Jones also discovered the effects of chemical pollution on dolphins and orcas, the largest species of dolphin. He came to realize that threats to these marine mammals were threats to the ocean itself, and to us all. Join Hardy Jones in his crusade to protect dolphins in NATURE's "The Dolphin Defender" airing on PBS Sunday, August 10 at 8 p.m. (check local listings). "The Dolphin Defender" is part of the 26th season of the Peabody and Emmy award-winning series produced by Thirteen/WNET New York for PBS. Major support provided by Canon U.S.A. Inc., Toyota, SC Johnson, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. For more information, visit
