This is my footage from Japan Dolphins Day 2013 at the cove in Taiji, Japan. This was my second year in Taiji for September 1st, and this year was even more emotional and surreal than last. This year I had spent all morning documenting the first drive of the season - a pod of approximately 40 dolphins - many of whom have now been selected for a life of captivity, and the rest who have been set free. I walked down to the cove after cove monitoring all morning, and I was overwhelmed by what happened over the next several hours. It was the best of who we are as human beings, it was powerful and moving and inspiring and it gave me hope not only for the dolphins, but for humanity.
