Gabriela Cowperthwaite on her film "Blackfish"

"I didn't come from animal activism, I was a mother who took her kids to Sea World." That's how Gabriela Cowperthwaite describes her background before making "Blackfish." She talks about why she made the film and her handling of trainer Dawn Brancheau's death.

    Why choose black"fish" for a title about these amazing, intelligent, exploited mammals? A heartbreaking story, still continuing.

    What can we do to help stop the captivity of orcas for entertainment and create a sanctuary for them to live out their lives in as natural of an environment as possible? How can we volunteer, what organizations should we donate to, how can we get involved?
