When Matt and I were first dating, we went to see this documentary on the dolphin slaughter in Japan. Aside from being well-made, it quickly raised our awareness to the issue leading us to skip the dolphin tank at the local aquarium and spread the word! Recently, The Cove has received multiple accolades including, the 2010 Academy Award winner for Best Documentary Feature and the word is getting out. Hopefully, with enough education, lobbying, and awareness this terrible industry will be shut down.
Watch this celebrity PSA for more information and please sign the petition at the bottom of the screen to stop the dolphin slaughter.
