"The Cove movie review - Marinovich Books"


The Cove

It was in 2009 when I first became aware of Taiji and the dolphin slaughter in Japan. As a wildlife photographer, I spend a significant amount of time researching new places and species to photograph. How had I ever missed such an atrocity? I considered myself to be very knowledgeable when it came to the natural world. Up until then, I had never heard about this wildlife genocide?

This powerful documentary exposes the meaningless and greed-driven practice hidden under the mantle of tradition

"Blackfish Movie review - Marinovich Books"



Documentaries like Blackfish and The Cove are the new platform for public awareness and long may it continue. The ex-SeaWorld trainers who feature in the film openly admit to believing and helping to propagate the nonsense which their ex-employers continue to try and sell. So it’s a big kudos to them for getting in front of the camera.

Free roaming creatures are not meant for captivity, nevermind doing tricks for our entertainment. Sooner or later tragedy will happen, and lives will be lost.

Racing Extinction

One of the best documentaries of the year and one that every household on the planet should watch. Showing many of the things that are facilitating the 6th extinction, it also has great messages of hope.

Every time I find myself losing conservation focus or hope in the world’s ability to fix this, I watch this documentary and am reinvigorated to be a part of the change that I want in the environment.
