Ivy then showed a clip from The Cove, an award winning documentary about the slaughter of dolphins in Japan. It was made by Ric O’Barry, the man who trained the Dolphin in the successful TV show called Flipper which was a big hit in the 1970’s. Ric now spends his life trying to get all dolphins released from captivity.
The Cove is an amazing documentary about our treatment of dolphins. Check out the trailer below.
“That’s crazy,” said Ivy. “Most Japanese people interviewed in The Cove simply didn’t know about the dolphin slaughter. I bet it’s the same with the whaling, they probably don’t know about that either. Maybe if they did know, they would be horrified just like us, maybe they would even try to stop it?”
Well now they have the opportunity to help stop the slaughter, as The Cove is available in Japanese, and…less dolphins are being killed each year.
