Let’s Protect Dolphins Together!

Born and Raised in Coconut Grove. FL, Lincoln spent much of his childhood in or around the ocean. His father Richard O’Barry was the dolphin trainer for the Flipper TV series, who now works to free captive dolphins back into the wild. The first four years of his life were spent living at the original Dolphin Project headquarters. The other 2 residents at the time were Liberty and Florida, the 2nd dolphins Ric released back into the wild. The next door neighbor at the time was President Nixon.

Lincoln’s first trip to Japan was around his 6th birthday. Ric was producing a series of Celebrate The Whale concerts in Japan. On this trip, the family made its first visit to Taiji, the birthplace of Japanese whaling and location of the drive slaughter.

Lincoln O’Barry has worked with his father on readaptions and releases of captive dolphins in Colombia, Indonesia, Nicaragua, and the United States.

In the mid 90’s, Lincoln started his own production company. As a producer, Lincoln worked with such clients as Elle, Italian Elle, Marie Claire, Mini Cooper, Coca Cola, Discover Card, Ray Ban. He worked with luminarie photographers such as Ellen Von Unwerth, Jesse Frohman, Ben Watts, Pier Paulo Ferrari, and Michele Compt. In the past few years, Lincoln expanded the company to include TV and Film. He produced up-fronts for The Travel Channel Animal Planet & Discovery Channel.
