“The Cove” came out on DVD and Digital Download yesterday! For those of you who haven’t been following the film on our Facebook Fan page, www.facebook.com/thecove, it has just been shortlisted for the Academy Awards. A nomination would go so far in making an impression in Japan so that’s huge news!
Here are some great ways to use the film to help spread the word:
1. Become a Cove Captain and host a screening – you can buy the DVD and download the discussion guide here:
2. Donate to Earth Island Institute for their ongoing outreach in Japan. For $35 you’ll also get a free copy of the DVD; an advance copy of the Winter 2010 issue of the Earth Island Journal; a year’s subscription (4 issues) to Earth Island Journal ($25 value); and free shipping and handling. And 100% of your donation will go to help Ric stop the killing of dolphins and whales in Japan. Check out this offer at: http://eii.org/sjd/
3. If you haven’t already please share this petition with at least five friends.
Finally, here’s a really great overview of the campaign to date: http://www.thecovemovie.info/
