May Multimedia From Marineland to Blackfish & Non-Human Personhood

One of the reasons we formed Voice of the Orcas website, and Voice of the Orcas blog, was (is) to serve as a depot for information related to marine mammal conservation and captivity. As the wave of public awareness  grows, more and more material continues to flood the news media as well as social media.


This post is put together to capture a handful of the interviews and videos that touched us this past month, just in time for Cinco de Mayo. 

Enjoy these bits of audio & video. Many thanks to the artists who crafted them, and feel free to suggest others in the comment section. We'd love to add more.
