Miranda Cosgrove dives into the water with a pod of dolphins while filming a brand new PSA for Oceana in South Bimini, Bahamas.
The 20-year-old actress/student recently filmed a PSA for the organization which highlights the need to protect dolphins and other marine life from the threat of seismic airgun blasts in the Atlantic Ocean.
â€œWhen I first entered the water, the dolphins were playing with each other, swimming side by side, and they were constantly singing to each other â€“ I could hear it! After a while they started to approach me and I could feel them look me in the eye. It was one of the best experiences of my life,” Miranda shared of her experience.
She added, “Swimming with wild dolphins made it so clear that these intelligent and social animals need their use of sound to survive, and Iâ€™m so happy to be working with Oceana to protect them.”
Miranda and Oceana is urging the government to halt seismic airgun testing, a form of oil and gas exploration that amounts to repetitive dynamite-like blasts in the Atlantic ocean. The blasts are 100,000 times more intense than the sound emitted from a jet engine and occur every 10 seconds for days to weeks on end.
