Go See The Cove!

Editor’s Note: The Cove won the Oscar for Best Feature Documentary! Congratulations!

Thanks to the passionate filmmakers who spread awareness through this documentary and to viewers who took action, including those who signed the Care2 petition.

Some articles just write themselves and some I just can’t get started. Well today, I’m stuck with the latter problem. I have so much to say, I just don’t know how to do it elegantly, so I’m just going with it.

Go see The Cove.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with this movie, it’s the story of Ric O’Barry, the man who trained Flipper for the TV show of the same name, and inadvertently started a multi-million dollar dolphin industry. O’Barry is the first human to have had longterm intimate contact with these creatures (who some say may be more intelligent than humans) and quickly realized that captivity was not where they belonged. Over the past 35 years he has continued a quest to free captive dolphins, and The Cove is the culmination (but surely not the end) of his trek.

This is the point where I’d usually explain what the movie is about, but the trailer on page two will do a much better job than I can. Go ahead, click to the next page, and check it out. I’ll wait.

Be ready to cry. Some images are just...it's hard to watch when things really start to go down. We really need to boycott Sea World and any other place that cages dolphins and whales.

This is an exceptional documentary - well worth your time. The passion of the message is compelling and the horrors of the slaughter are undeniable. It is a masterful work. Thanks for brining it to my attention - a cause now I can not get out of my head!

I could never stand by knowing that something like that was happening. They are highly intelligent, fun loving mammals. I am not a violent person, but seeing something like that, would definitely unleash my dark side! To me, that is murder!
