It gets better. According to the NY Times and LA Times, "The Cove" will premiere this summer on Animal Planet. Also, two episodes for a full series, tentatively called, "Dolphin Warriors" have already been completed and will be aired this coming fall on the same network. Though the Japanese government continues to claim that cultural precedence allows the them to continue with the slaughter of both whales and dolphins, the publicity brought to bear by "The Cove" will hopefully make that difficult at best. Whaling already defies international law, and the brutal dolphin harvest will undoubtedly be added as an offense. Which, at least in my eyes, makes further argument for humans to perhaps forego eating meat of any type. But that's for another post on another day...

Many of you may not have watched the Oscars last Sunday. In spite of your absence, viewership was up over 20% from last year. That's 20% more pairs of eyeballs and ears which found out that "The Cove" did indeed win the Academy Award for Best Documentary. Yay! Or, as dolphins would squeal, EEEEEeeeee!!! Slap one big flipper for all the whales and dolphins who hopefully won't wind up as sushi in some Japanese bento box!
