Two recent “incidents” triggered my real interested in protecting whales and dolphins:
- I watched The Cove, 2010 Academy Award winner for Best Documentary, a movie about the annual killing of dolphins in a National Park at Taji, Wakayama, in Japan
- I stumbled upon online petitions against killing whales and dolphins on the Faroe Islands as a ritual to prove adult hood
Both left me somewhat shocked. Learning about how so called human beings slaughter animals without real need for food makes me want to puke! I hardly find words to describe my rage.
