If we can't treat the other creatures of this earth right, how our we ever going to fix our humanitarian problems?

Are dolphins better than fish?
What's the porpoise of freaking out about it.

Btw, it has been proven that plant-life has certain biological responses that indicate there may be some form of sentience there. As ridiculous as that may sound to you, keep in mind that we humans do not even know what "consciousness" is or where it comes from in ourselves.

This documentary needs to become so public that the horrific town in Japan becomes notorious as the "Auschwitz of the East".
dude, it's callous to compare the slaughter of human beings to the slaughter of dolphins.
First off, it is compassion, not "a passion" that antar is expressing. No values are being imposed except conservation, which is what the eskimos do. They use all of the whale, seal, whatever they catch. The peoples of the jungles do not mass slaughter their food supply. They are much smarter than that.
I find your passion commendable but I still think it's unfair for any of
us to impose our values on others. Peoples in the jungles of the equatorial
regions regularly kill and eat apes and monkeys (our closest relatives)
Does this make them immoral as well?
a laughable excuse. Tell the families to go out in the woods and see the animal in their natural habitat, not some set created for their own personal lazy enjoyment.
I read in the article where some dolphins were selected to be sent to
aquariums worldwide. While my gut reaction to seeing any wild creature
locked in a cage or pool (in this case) is negative there is still the
argument that these animals are being sacrificed to help educate people
(particularly inner-city kids) and bring nature up close. These zoos and
aquariums bring people face to face with the beauty of nature up close to
millions who would otherwise never see them. In so doing we create a
constituency that will help support environmental efforts. People learn to
care about nature and by extension, man. It's still a cruel fate for any
wild animal yet it fills a great need in our world.
