Actress Amber Valletta and legendary Broadway director Hal Prince join the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) as honorary board members--along with Leonardo DiCaprio, Pierce Brosnan, and Ben Stein. They both posed for IFAW's latest campaign: Tails for Whales, a visual petition for the protection of whales threatened by commercial whaling, ship strikes, fishing gear, and climate change. Click through to hear from Hal and Amber, and view more Tails for Whales photos--including one from yours truly. IFAW's Tails for Whales launched during New York Fashion Week Fall 09 with a Vegan Queen runway show and launch party at Greenhouse. The growing collection of photos show that momentum is growing for the campaign. Amber Valletta speaks to her respect for IFAW's environmental initiatives, below.
I am so proud to be a part of this fantastic organization. From saving the magnificent whales to the iconic polar bears, IFAW has done wonders to protect wildlife populations. I am excited to join the cause and help spread the word about IFAW's campaigns.
