Rick O’Barry on saving dolphins and The Cove

See on Scoop.itTitan Explores

To end the brutal killing of more than 20,000 dolphins in Japan.

Winner of the 2009 Oscar for best feature documentary, The Cove follows a team of activists and filmmakers as they infiltrate a heavily-guarded cove in Taiji, Japan. In this remote village they witness and document activities deliberately being hidden from the public: More than 20,000 dolphins and porpoises are being slaughtered each year and their meat, containing toxic levels of mercury, is being sold as food in Japan, often times labeled as whale meat. 

Under the direction of the film’s Ric O’Barry, Save Japan Dolphins.org/Earth Island Institute is actively working in Japan to shut down this brutal practice.
