I'm ashamed to say this, but last night was the first time I'd heard about Taiji on the coast of Japan and the atrocious dolphin hunts. Graeme and I watched The Cove. We were shocked. It's horrific.
It's a brilliant film, and whilst I found the slaughter scenes very distressing, I'm no longer ignorant on issues of dolphin drives, dolphin captivity and mercury.
The annual hunting season starts in a couple of days. It's chilling to think about it.
I tell you one thing: I've never visited those sea life theme parks before, and I definitely won't be now.
Watch the trailer. Watch the film if you can. I'm so glad I did.
