It was a real honor to have Anthony Marr from HOPE with us tonite to
show us his Power Point presentation. He's very knowledgebale and
trully motivated, and I would highly recomend him to anyone
interested in saving the dolphins...and seals and tigers! We leart a
lot tonight if a very short time from someone who has their facts
down and been doing this for some time.
I can't help but feel like a juvenile sitting there looking up to him...our group is only a month old can you believe this?

One thing he shared that hadn't been seen before is that there are
two swim with the dolphin aquariums in Taiji. If I am not
mistaken, one of them is besides the cove where they kill the
dolphins. And they serve dolphin meet at the aquarium. Its sounds
too ridiculous to be true.
And to think that the dolphins do not attack the humans seems even more amazing.
The seems such a great example of cognitive dissonance. The same type shown by cigarette executives and other such jobs that are obviously unhealthy for other human beings yet the people in those positions still maintain a belief in self that they are not doing anything wrong.
Education is the answer. I would highly recommend Anthony as a speaker. Perhaps there are some people in this tribe that might invite him down to give a presentation in your city?
As Starfish points out, here is someone, like Ric and DJ, who is in the front lines working on this issue on a daily basis. Its very inspiring to see their work and what they have accomplished.

thanks for bringing that up, i wasn't sure if that classified
info or not :-P
either way it is very disturbing to have a dolphin swim, but right next to where the water runs crimson from their blook as they get slaughtered!!!
this gets even sicker - you can buy a piece of dolphin jerky and then go for a dolphin swim a few feet away. we saw the images and it looks like disneyland gone very bad - unreal, i would think it to be a hoax! but it's real and as SICK as it gets!
