Storyline

The first comprehensive film to reveal the long and sordid history of the captive whale and dolphin entertainment business. Many of these marine parks and aquariums are directly or indirectly responsible for the death of thousands of the very animals they use for public entertainment. Premature deaths. Trainer injuries. Illegal practices. Educational misrepresentation. Government incompetence. Secret deals. These and many other issues are presented, and documented for the first time in this powerful documentary, narrated by actor Mike Farrell. Written by Anonymous

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.
