On the next Your Call we’ll speak with Ric O’Barry, former Flipper trainer turned dolphin activist and star of the academy award winning documentary The Cove. The Dolphin Project works to end the billion dollar dolphin captivity industry and to end the killing of dolphins in Taiji, Japan. We are seeing unprecedented level of backlash against Sea World, but the dolphin trade is increasing abroad. What’s next for marine mammals? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
