The Cove

Hello all in blogland. I will be writing a post about the second leg of my Costa Rica trip shortly, but we are taking a short commercial break to keep you well informed of the goings on in the world of television. Tomorrow night (Sunday, August 29th) at 9 PM eastern, Animal Planet will be showing the Oscar-winning documentary "The Cove". If you have not seen it this is an absolute must. If you have seen it, you may want to DVR it (like I'm doing) to show to anyone and everyone who ever comes over to your house for a movie night. The film is amazing. Yes, it is a documentary but it feels like an action movie. And it finally exposes the truth about what happens every year in Taiji, Japan to hundreds of innocent dolphins. It will likely make you cry, but if you love dolphins it is your duty to watch this amazing film and continue to spread the word. If we all protest this, eventually Japan will have to stop.

The synopsis from the website:
"Academy Award® Winner for Best Documentary of 2009, THE COVE follows an elite team of activists, filmmakers and freedivers as they embark on a covert mission to penetrate a remote and hidden cove in Taiji, Japan, shining a light on a dark and deadly secret. Utilizing state-of-the-art techniques, including hidden microphones and cameras in fake rocks, the team uncovers how this small seaside village serves as a horrifying microcosm of massive ecological crimes happening worldwide. The result is a provocative mix of investigative journalism, eco-adventure and arresting imagery, adding up to an unforgettable story that has inspired audiences worldwide to action."

Spread the word.

Also, if you missed last night's season finally of "Whale Wars", Animal Planet is having a marathon of the season all day tomorrow leading up to their broadcast of "The Cove". The oceans need us to show our support!
