30 Bananas a Day!

Tonight, I witnessed the worthy cause of protecting our animal brethren get a well-deserved worldwide platform:

‘‘The Cove,’’ a U.S. film about a controversial annual dolphin hunt at a Japanese town, won the best documentary feature at the 82nd Annual Academy Awards ceremony Sunday in Los Angeles.
Directed by Louie Psihoyos, one of the world’s most prominent still photographers, the film depicts, partly through the use of hidden cameras and microphones, the capture of dolphins by local fishermen in the whaling town of Taiji, Wakayama Prefecture."

Tears, chills, that is fantastic news, there was no slaughter. So good for Japan, for the dolphins and for the world! Thank you for posting this Prad! Ed and Shell

Wow, I didn't get that impression that there was any disrespect for Japanese people. They showed liars and truth tellers from several cultures. I thought they showed Japanese people in both positions too. What did you think was disrespectful or what could they have done differently to be more respectful?

There has been progress! :) The Japanese men that were worried about dolphin meat being put in school lunches took action and they got it stopped! Also, my post above talks about what happened this year at "slaughter time". None slaughtered!
This is wonderful news. Unfortunately, the killing has not stopped, even with "The Cove."

Please take the time to read my current post here

I'm looking to go to Taiji at the end of October. Sea Shepherd is maintaining a positive presence there, and while there continues to be that presence, no dolphins are killed. I want to dedicate my time to helping save these dolphins, if only for a few weeks. But to do so I need support and help from you beautiful fellow 30BaDer's!
tarah,

the link you have put there to your "current post" does not work.
i think this is where you want people to go:
The Time For Taiji Is Now!! Dare to Dream! Are You With Me?

Thank you Prad,

I'm not sure why it did not work. I had hyperlinked it.

That's the correct link, yes.
here is an interview with diane reiss who has spent most of her life studying dolphins and is the scientific advisor to the cove film:
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/21/science/21conversation.html?_r=1&;...

diane talks about things that certain humans seem to think are unique to humans, but are in fact quite present in other species too.

you can write to the nytimes by going to this link:

and looking towards the bottom of the post where you'll see not only the email address for the paper, but also some ideas.

in friendship,
prad
