Beyond Blackfish: Cetacean Captivity Revisited

A new documentary, Long Gone Wild, marketed as the follow-up to the 2013 blockbuster Blackfish, is making the film festival rounds and is available on several streaming services. An interview with AWI’s Dr. Naomi Rose is featured in this film, which covers the captures of belugas and orcas in Russia and the expanding marine theme park industry in China. The filmmaker, William Neal, did extensive research into the current trade in wild-caught whales and the poor conditions to which many of these animals have been subjected.
