You can enjoy delicious baked goods such as cupcakes and cookies this Saturday, and help a local activist save the dolphins.
This Saturday, Tarah Millen is holding a Bake Sale for the Dolphins in front of Zen Zero at 407B Fifth St. in Courtenay. The bake sale starts at noon and will continue until all the baked goods are sold.
Millen is raising money to travel back to Taiji, Japan, to save dolphins, as well as to travel to Antarctica this winter to save whales with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.
Last fall, Millen and her partner, Ryan Hughes, travelled to Taiji as Cove Guardians to document and raise awareness of the slaughter of thousands of dolphins. They spent a combined three weeks in Taiji, documenting the slaughter and placing pressure on the Japanese government to stop issuing hunting permits, while also raising awareness of the impacts of the captive dolphin trade.
Millen, who is currently also collecting returnable cans and bottles to raise money, and Hughes are planning to travel back to Japan this November and then take part in Sea Shepherd’s Antarctic anti-whaling campaign.
If anyone is interested in donating baked goods to the Bake Sale for the Dolphins, they can contact Millen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
