[Ric O’Barry’s Dolphin Project Dedicated to the Welfare of Dolphins Worldwide Since Earth Day 1970:]
There are about six dolphins on the – this side of the net, they went under it, actually trying to escape, but they went in the wrong direction. There is one tangled up in the net over there and in the process of drowning just in front of Tim, here is another one tangled in the net.
These dolphin hunters do nothing to save them. Neither does the coast guard. Here we have all the journalists from Japan, just simply gawking and selling the footage and spinning the story in such a way to perpetuate this barbaric practice, its not cultural, its not traditional, Japanese people historically have never done this kind of cruelty, this is something new.
Here is a dolphin right here in front of us, panic-stricken trying to find the way out. Oh man!
So if I get in the water and try to help this animal, I will be arrested immediately. The police are all over the place.
This one is – this is – this is anguish. This is a male dolphin, a young male dolphin – Risso’s Dolphin. (Grampus griseus)
He’s panic-stricken on the rocks, and I am heartbroken that I can’t get in the water and help him away from… he’s tearing his skin up. This is awful.
Why don’t you come over here and help him. God dammit!

This is terrible. Look at this.
This is extremely cruel. This is exactly why The World Association of Zoos and Aquariums told their members in Japan Association of Zoos and Aquariums to stop this barbaric practice, but they haven’t done that.
Here come the dolphin hunters taking their sweet time. This is just awful.
I feel like getting in the water – sometimes we have to make split decisions here. And if I were to step on that rock and try to rescue this dolphin, I would be arrested and put away for the long time and deported, shame on these guys, they bring shame to Japan.
They bring shame to Taiji then they blame it on outsiders. They have to start being responsible for their own action.
It’s probably not going to make it. It’s giving up.
These are the cruelest 50 men in the world, right here. They will be doing this, extreme [tools], capture process for the next six months. Shame on the captivity industry for not being here and doing something about it, shame on The World Association of Zoos and Aquariums, The Japanese Association of Zoos and Aquariums, shame on them for not being here and taking a stand on this.
I don’t see that Risso’s Dolphin anymore. They’re sending over a diver, probably with a knife to take him out. (He’s down) He’s down, he’s on the bottom.
When a dolphin die they sink to the bottom. And I think that may have happened to that Risso’s Dolphin.
And all these Japanese journalists here are simply gawking and selling photographs and they will spin this story as it’s our tradition, our culture, leave us alone.
It is not the Japanese tradition or culture to do this, extreme cruel work. It’s only about 50 to a 100 man who are doing this, shame on them. They don’t represent the Japanese people.
It breaks my heart.
That dolphin that was on the rocks over here and was pulled away, is on the bottom now. He is dead, he or she, actually he was a male, I remember now. My mind is a little confused. This is – yhis is so stressful. This is so difficult to witness.

I almost got in the water. I almost got in the water and maybe I should have to get him off the rocks. I clearly would have been arrested but maybe that’s a good thing to bring attention to these atrocities that are taking place here.
I guess I blew it. I should have got in the water and saved that dolphin.
