    CEO of Pacific Whale Foundation, Greg Kaufman and Cindy Paulos talk with Manny Oteyza, Producer of  Blackfish, about his Movie "Blackfish". The movie documents the circumstances leading to the 2010 death of Dawn Brancheau, a renowned SeaWorld trainer who was killed by Tilikum, a 12,000-pound orca. This film provides a compelling look at the cruelty of keeping whales and dolphins in captivity, and has been instrumental in educating millions of people worldwide about the dark side of using these majestic marine mammals for human entertainment. Also on the show is Howard Garrett, co-founder and Executive Director of Orca Network and an activist in the "Free Lolita" campaign.  Named "Lolita" and shipped to the Miami Seaqaurium, Lolita remains in captivity there 40 years later in a 35' x 80' x 20' concrete tankDownload Standard Podcast
