I always loved sea creatures and the ocean I liked to go to parks to see the whales and dolphins swim I thought they rescued them from the sea I thought they were all happy to be there Until nowWhen I first saw the book cover it just looked like a beautiful sunset But after I saw the documentary it looked different The water was red because of the blood of the dolphins I heard some people eat them This was a sad story I didn’t want to believe so But it was all real and the people didn’t know anything about it Because the dolphins are always smiling I thought they were always happy But they were not The documentary proved that they were not happy They were in stress At least they were alive The other dolphins were eaten Or maybe dying was easier I knew that a lot of dogs and cats and other animals were being abused and killed But I didn’t know about the dolphins I feel so bad for the animals I feel sorry for just watching I wish this is not happening I recommend this book to all the people Everybody needs to know this

In 2009 a documentary movie called The Cove focused the spotlight of world attention on the tiny coastal village of Taiji Japan Lauded as the birthplace of Japanese whaling present day Taiji hosts a secretive industry of marine mammal exploitation This diminutive town is a prinicpal provider of captive whales and dolphins to the world's marine parks and is responsible for the cruel slaughter of thousands of dolphins annually Salt Water Tears is written around author Len Varley's first person eyewitness journal account of events in and around Taiji in the winter of 2010 I. When I first saw the book cover my sister was with me She asked “Aren’t tears literally salt water Why is the book name Salt Water Tears” I couldn’t say anything to that uestion partly because I was obsessed with the cover illustration as usual I was thinking ‘Wow The illustrator must really love red Or is this really all blood Yowza’ Blue is like the opposite color of red Seawater can be blue navy green turuoise and even gray but never red To have a red ocean you would need 1 lots of red paint 2 a really talented photo editor or 3 lots of blood I decided that it was 3 lots of blood So I figured that this book will have lots of description about blood I was hoping that I was wrong about the blood part but no such luck In this book the author describes whaling and the cetaceans’ captivity with vivid words There were parts about guns and harpoons et cetera I was so angry that I wanted to go to Taiji and sue all the whalers for animal abuse The Japanese fishermen say that whaling is their tradition They say that it’s their pride They should put their priorities straight What is important Lives ocean food chain and possibly the fate of earth or a bloodthirsty tradition Killing endangered species is one of the most unintelligent things that a human being can do So I say get rid of that sort of tradition Would you call sacrificing human beings a tradition to keep Dolphins and humans are both precious lives You should not call massacring lives tradition If the Japanese want to keep their tradition why can’t they do it in a swimming pool with fake dolphinsFurther nobody should eat dolphin meat either It has so much mercury than recommended Eating dolphin meat is like having a mercury sauce with it It’s like taking drugs except that most of the people who eat it doesn’t know what is wrong with it until they catch something bad like the minamata disease Why kill all the dolphins when you cannot even eat it It’s just savage There are no justifications for that The whalers have a final excuse for the barbaric behavior and it’s as ridiculous as the rest They say the whales are eating all the fish that they are supposed to catch Can you believe that Humans are no doubt number one consumers of fish In fact because of humans we are going to have no fish at this rate We the humans are the one who should leave fish for the wildlife and stop fishing do much I was okay with this book It showed Japan’s past and present that caused them to whale so much Although it displayed Koreans as barbarians in a certain part In modern history Japan was even barbaric Then they lost to a little boy and a fat man but that is another story I vowed to myself never to go watching a dolphin show in my life I recommend this book to people who are interested in environmental issues They should know about Taiji

Salt Water TearsT is a story that seeks to balance activism and marine conservation with Japanese traditional culture and introduces the reader to an enigmatic and highly intelligent sea dweller the dolphin Beyond this a far deeper universal notion resonates the need for mankind to reconnect and re harmonise with the natural environment while addressing the pressing dual issues of conservation and sustainability before it is too late Weaving an intriguing tale of past and present author Len Varley tables a deeper understanding of the once deeply spiritual Japanese whaling tradition He o. When I first saw this book I was kind of scared The book cover has this silent creepy atmosphere There’s a sign that says “KEEP OUT EXCEPTED PERSONS RELATED NO PHOTOGRAPHY” I’m not sure if that sentence is grammatically right Maybe it is but anyway the sentence sounds kind of weirdOne other strange thing is that the sea looks red I asked myself “What could make the sea red” The first answer I thought of was blood I hoped it was not blood Surely it couldn’t be blood But it turns out I was correct The sea was dyed red with blood DOLPHIN BLOOD I felt so bad for the dolphins The evil Taiji fishermen caught a bunch of them sold the pretty dolphins and slaughtered the rest in a secret area That was cruel enough but they sold the killed dolphins and earned money for the meat That was so shocking The documentary was outraging It’s called “The Cove” and it shows the dolphin killing in Taiji Japan☹ It was made in 2009 and was the winner of the ‘Best Documentary 82nd Academy Award of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences OSCAR’ I definitely think it was worthy of the prize☺ The Taiji fishermen claim that what they’re doing is their tradition and culture Why would killing dolphins be a culture The dictionary says culture is “the art of human intellectual achievement regarded collectively” But I really really really don’t think ‘dolphin slaughter’ should be called ‘art’ NO DOLPHIN KILLING YAY
