Animal Planet presents 'Blood Dolphins'
“Dolphins are highly intelligent, self-aware, complex creatures that should swim free without the threat of slaughter or captivity,” said Ric O’Barry. “Dolphins’ primary sense is sonar sound, and living within small confines causes sensory deprivation and distress, while also extremely limiting their range of space. The most important thing I can do … that my son can do … is show the world through projects like 'Blood Dolphins' just how threatened dolphins are so we can all do something about it.”
The miniseries, which premieres on Aug. 27, takes viewers back to Taiji, Japan — site of the original deadly "Cove" — as well as to the Solomon Islands.
