RIC O'BARRY, on behalf of “EARTH ISLAND INSTITUTE INC” in his message said, “I can't tell you how angry this makes me. And I know it makes you angry, too. Many of you will be frustrated, but I don’t want you to lose hope. I am more convinced than ever that our campaign to generate worldwide pressure for an end to the slaughter is right and must succeed. We must be vigilant and turn up the heat. The Japanese government's defiance must not be allowed to stand. Change does not happen overnight, and we have only just started to get the word out to the Japanese people.” He also said, “we are working to keep people on the ground in Taiji to monitor the Cove and report back to the world.”

According to the officials at the EARTH ISLAND INSTITUTE INC are ramping up efforts with their distributor at Japan to get thousands of copies of the Japanese version of “THE COVE” into the hands of general mass at Japan. The situation is seriously grave and can be solved only by the Japanese people themselves. They can only put an end to such cruelty to animals.
A volunteer in Tokyo had interviewed several Japanese regarding “THE COVE” and the dolphin slaughter. According to her all of them had already heard about the mass killing of dolphins at Taiji, and there had been a noticeable change in thoughts from several months ago when nobody was aware of the issue of dolphin hunts.
Good news is the US President Barack Obama is flying off to Japan in November, 2010 in order to urge quick attention to this matter. Thank you and all the best Mr. Barack Obama.
Our keen request to Japanese government... Please stop these types of sports, educate yourselves and be responsible towards nature.
