Since 2021, Molly has worked as the Rescue and Community Coordinator for British Divers Marine Life Rescue organising the rescues of whales, dolphins, seals and porpoises on a daily basis around the UK, and is also part of the Management Committee of Dolphinaria-Free Europe.
Molly became cetacean-obsessed after seeing dolphins in the wild off the Florida coast as a child, followed by visits to SeaWorld and Discovery Cove where she unfortunately swam with captive dolphins. It wasn’t until the Blackfish movement when she realised that she had been completely misled and lied to about the care and welfare of the animals in captivity. Since Molly found out the truth, she has done everything she can to educate the people around her.
In 2016, she travelled to Taiji, Japan with Ric O'Barry's Dolphin Project (DP) for the first time to document the dolphin captures and slaughters, where she witnessed the trauma endured by these cetaceans firsthand. Molly returned to Taiji as Lead Cove Monitor for DP for a longer stint in 2018 and then again in 2019, spearheading the campaign, running all social media channels and live-streaming the dolphin drive hunts whilst managing a team of volunteers for several months at a time.
She has held talks at various schools in her hometown to educate students and inform them on what they can do to help, and wrote her dissertation at university on the damaging impacts of captivity on killer whales and the future of marine parks.
Molly regularly attends protests in London for Save the Japan Dolphins, Free Tokitae and Empty the Tanks where she has given speeches, and also given presentations at schools to educate students and encourage them to not visit cetaceans in captivity. She has also attended anti-captivity protests in Australia and the US, volunteered on a marine conservation project in Fiji, and completed her PADI Divemaster and Master Scuba Diver certifications in the Philippines.
Molly believes that education and spreading awareness is the answer to putting an end to the captive industry, and is hopeful that one day, every dolphin and whale will be free.
