Whale and dolphin captivity

The Cove connects the deadly dolphin drive hunts and captivity.
During the drive hunts, some dolphins are selected alive by aquaria. Dolphins from these hunts are shipped within Japan and to other international facilities, including swim-with-the-dolphin programs in places like China, Ukraine, Turkey, Thailand, and Vietnam.Watch
