I made this design pretty much immediately after watching ‘The Cove’, a documentary film that analyzes and questions Japan’s dolphin hunting culture. It really touched my heart as I saw the true cruelty and evil mankind can inflict on wildlife. The dolphins are herded into a cove where fishermen capture them with large nets, the dolphins considered good quality are sold, and the others are taken to another cove out of the eyes of the public where they are killed with spears and knives…blood is literally filling the ocean…they are then sold as food. The film also tries to inform and educate the public about the risks of mercury poisoning from dolphin meat.
I grew up surfing, and have a close connection with the ocean, and was regularly in the company of the local dolphin family.
If this design can bring even the tiniest bit of awareness, i would feel very happy.
