Oceanic Preservation Society
The Oceanic Preservation Society is a Colorado-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that promotes marine conservation and environmentalism and addresses issues such as animal rights and censorship. It was founded in 2005 by photographer and current executive director Louie Psihoyos and Silicon Valley entrepreneur Jim Clark. In 2009, OPS released The Cove, a documentary film that describes the annual killing of dolphins in a national park at Taiji, Wakayama.
The organization is currently working on a second documentary, which is to focus on the mass extinction of species, disappearance of coral reefs, and the rise of toxins in the ocean.
