The Cove

I watched The Cove on TV tonight. A great documentary about the dolphin and whaling industry in Japan. If you're in Sweden you can check it out on SVT Play.

Loved the story of Ric O'Barry, the man who trained the five dolphins that played Flipper in the original tv-series. In doing so helped create the demand for dolphins as entertainment, an industry that captures wild dolphins for use in theme parks. Ric O'Barry is now an activist working to release dolphins from captivity and end the slaughter in Japan.

"I spent ten years building that industry up, and I spent the last thirty-five years trying to tear it down."

Sea Shepherd is also keeping an eye on Taji.
