The world’s largest reef conservation organization, Reef Check Foundation and Body Glove, the world’s leading water sports brand, are thrilled to announce the first annual “Dolphin Call Contest,” to be held Saturday, April 27, 2013 at the South Bay Earth Day Concert and Celebration in Polliwog Park in Manhattan Beach. The event will run from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
This zany contest aims to create awareness of the plight of the world’s tropical coral reefs, as well as the rocky reefs here in California. Dolphins are found in both tropical and California waters and often feed near reefs. “Our hope is that kids and adults will have fun trying to communicate like dolphins, will learn something and be encouraged to support our work of saving reefs,” said Dr. Gregor Hodgson, founder and executive director for the Reef Check Foundation. Contestants will have the opportunity to win a raffle, giveaways and fantastic prizes from Body Glove for the best dolphin call. The contest is FREE and open to adults and kids, and starting April 1, dolphin callers can pre-register online at http://www.reefcheck.org
or at the Reef Check Foundation booth on the day of the event.
There will also be a special guest appearance and performance by two-time Oscar-nominated singer/songwriter, Carol Connors; the original dolphin call lady herself, as originally seen on Victoria Beckham’s reality television show. Miss Connors is an enthusiastic conservationist, scuba diver, and an avid supporter of Reef Check. She will be performing her song, “The Dolphins are Coming, Let the Magic Begin.”
