Watch the Cove! And Do Something about It

I’ve blogged about the documentary The Cove before, but really want to encourage everyone to see this movie that is now available on DVD. The movie follows a small group of people trying to bring awareness to the thousands of dolphins that are slaughtered each year in Taiji Japan.

And if you don’t think this affects you, because you don’t eat Japanese dolphin or whale meat think again. Before the dolphins are slaughtered they are picked through by trainers. The ones the trainers pick out are shipped all over the world to sea parks and aquariums where people like you, go to watch them be put on display for your entertainment or for you to swim with them and think they are so cute. Would you like being caged up and then forced to do trick for food?

The only good thing in this story is that we have so polluted our oceans that whales and dolphins are so full of mercury that they are potentially poisoning those who eat the meat. Unfortunately, also poising their unsuspecting children as well.
