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
