Blood Dolphins

Blood Dolphins

Ric O'Barry - lead activist of the Oscar winning film, The Cove - and his son, filmmaker Lincoln, are activists operating on the edge ... two men driven by a single passion. In Blood Dolphins former Flipper trainer Ric continues on his redemptive mission to save dolphins at the peril of man. He and son Lincoln return to Taiji, Japan, the site of The Cove, and travel to the Solomon Islands, the nerve center of dolphin slaughter and trade to confront cultural, political and economic forces that affect the world's dolphins. Threatened by annual hunts, dolphins are slaughtered by the thousands annually. They also are victimized by a highly lucrative (at times cutthroat) captive trade, where a "prime specimen" can rake in up to $200,000 for the dolphin entertainment industry. Either scenario is a sad fate for one of the most remarkable, intelligent and loved creatures on the planet. (Source: Animal Planet)
