The Cove

What does the Japanese government want to keep hidden from the public? Cove is a powerful documentary movie revealing the slaughter of over 20,000 dolphins in Japan every year. Richard O’Barry who found and trained the dolphins who were used to play Flipper on the Flipper TV series explains why he had a change of heart about dolphin captivity after one of his dolphins commited suicide in his arms due to depression from the captivity.

In Taijii Japan they capture dolphins and sell them to amusement parks, exhibits and other “swimming with dolphins” experiences. They also kill dolphins for meat and are giving it to the Japanese school children for free to gain sympathy for their massacres. The level of mercury in dolphin meat is deadly to humans.

O’Barry, feeling responsible for creating this multi-million dollar industry revoling around dolphins decides to do something about it. He enlists a covert team of specialists with different skills to create an illegal mission to gain evidence of what is occuring in Japan.

The documentary had me in tears several times as I’m sure it will for you. It is moving and shocking.
