The Cove

Last night I saw the 2010 Academy Award winning documentary "The Cove".

It was an incredible mix of suspense, heart (of Ric O'Barry, especially) and environmental awareness.

Did you know that dolphins can make bubble rings - and play with them in the water?? They are such intelligent creatures, and there seems to be no sense behind the mass killing of them in Taiji, Japan. Not to mention the issues behind mercury poisoning. (To see what fish are safe to eat: click here.)

I always wondered why celebrities, like Hayden Panettiere (who is featured in the film), were always saying, "Save the Dolphins" - and now I know.

(Makes me dislike her a little less.)
