with regards to Jonathan Swift and apologies to Rodney King, "Can't we all just eat each other, (and leave the animals alone)?" Solves two problems at once; Over population and world hunger. It's like the old joke about using lawyers instead of lab rats: there's plenty more of them, they won't be missed, and the lab technicians won't get emotionally attached to them.

Professional Surfer Dave Rastovich brought a lot of attention to this issue along with the Sea Shepard Society.

major kudos to you on an amazing film and it's recognition,
time for all compassionate humans to BOYCOTT all Japanese products, not just because of the "cove" BUT also the disgusting whale slaughter under the bogus pretense of scientific research....

I saw the movie. Congrats on your nominations. It was important and necessary, however, it was so hard to watch that it turned me off a bit. I had to watch it a second time to complete the movie.

Good lord with the chickens and cows. There's a HUGE difference: dolphins are cute.

Get over it.

What's the difference between what the Japaneese do with the dolphins and what we do here with cows, chickens, etc?
