"The Cove" interview
      #139339 - 07/30/09 04:30 PM

NPR has a couple of stories on the upcoming documentary "The Cove" about the Taiji dolphin drives. They did an interview with Ric O'Barry and the director of the film, Louie Psihoyos.

I was kind of surprised. They said that the whole operation is done with 13 boats, about 2 people per boat. It's a very localized, small time operation, yet they're providing dolphins to a number of parks world-wide, along with the meat.

There's an article here, but also a link at the top of the page to listen to the interview and some sound clips from the film:

They also have a review of the film here:
