More whale-related news

From Salon.com:
The producers of "The Cove" -- the Oscar-winning documentary about Japanese dolphin killings -- unveiled their latest marine-mammal sting operation yesterday, exposing a trendy Los Angeles sushi restaurant called The Hump for selling illegal whale meat.

The meat turned out to be from the endangered Sei whale. Read the full article here.

Also- The Cove won an Academy Award- Best Documentary of 2009! Congratulations!!! Very well deserved!

If you aren't familiar with The Cove and the inspiring work of Ric O'Barry - a former dolphin trainer who worked on the popular Flipper TV show and has since decided capturing dolphins and forcing them to perform tricks is simply wrong- visit the website.
