This is not just a documentary..is a pure TRUE
5 August 2012 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

Whoever have seen The Cove, this could be a must continue. But i really cant think what to say first, in this review. Actually i think even if i would write here, all the film, it wouldn't be a thing...

Only a great thanks to all the people who worked for this, and are working for the conservation of dolphins,whales, wildlife, nature, environment in one word the Planet Earth. For anyone who wants educate himself, and understand animals, wildlife, for anyone who feels, at least something for even just one animal, from any kind,this is a must see.

Save wildlife,nature,environment,the Planet.
