The Cove ~ A Documentary Film (2009)

“The Cove” is a 2009 documentary film that analyzes and questions Japan’s dolphin hunting culture.

It was awarded the (2010) Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.

The film is a call to action to halt mass dolphin kills, change Japanese fishing practices, to inform and educate the public about the risks, and increasing hazard of mercury poisoning from dolphin meat.

The film is told from an ocean conservationist’s point of view.

The film highlights the fact that the number of dolphins killed in the Taiji dolphin hunting drive is several times greater than the number of whales killed in the Antarctic. They claims that 23,000 dolphins and porpoises are killed in Japan every year by the country’s whaling industry.
