The Dolphin Community "In Their World ... On Their Terms"
July 22, 2010
Hosted by David Gibbons
David Gibbons is joined by Dr. Denise Harzing of the Wild Dolphin Project. The oil spill is affecting thousands of fish, turtles, and dolphins in the Gulf of Mexico. Recent footage obtained by activist John Wathen, who flew over the spill, shows dolphins and whales in the oil slick, some belly-up already dead, others struggling to breathe in the toxic fumes. Dr. Herzing commented recently at her website “The sad fact is that most of the animals caught in the offshore spill are probably already dead or doomed. But the suppression both of media and air documentation is a disservice to the public, and to the environment that is suffering terribly. It is inconceivable that our government, BP, and other agencies have taken this posture to give the American and global public the illusion of an under-control situation. Without the ability to bear witness to the death and destruction, it is likely we will not learn and will fail to change our habits, once again setting the stage for continued tragedies in the future.”
