Animal rights activist Bob Barker partnered with PETA this week, filming a public service announcement that asks families planning their summer vacation to skip SeaWorld, saying, "Life in cramped tanks is no prize for orcas and dolphins, who want to be free with their families in the ocean. "The former Price is Right host continued, reports Ecorazzi, saying, "Many have died prematurely at SeaWorld after swimming in endless circles and performing dumb tricks day in and day out." Since retiring, Barker has also supported marine life with donations to the Sea Shepherd organization's anti-whaling activities.

Isabel Lucas on Protecting Reefs
In a blog for The Huffington Post, Australian actress Isabel Lucas -- who you might recognize from "Transformers" -- discusses her work with the Protect Our Coral Sea initiative, which hopes to create a 1 million-square-kilometer marine park next to the Great Barrier Reef. "It would protect a huge diversity of habitats from tropical coral reefs, to species living in the open ocean, to a huge pool of biodiversity living in the depths of the ocean that we don't even know about yet," she writes. "It would serve as a place for inspiration, enjoyment and where the ocean's species -- whales, dolphins, sea turtles, rays -- will all have a safe haven forever."
