the cove, oprah

In an exclusive interview with The Huffington Post, Fisher Stevens, producer of the Oscar-winner The Cove, revealed that Oprah will be their next stop to bring awareness to what’s happening in Japan.

“We want to keep the pressure on and the momentum going,” he said. “We’re going to be on Oprah on Earth day, April 22nd, which will help a lot. Obviously, the Japanese don’t want westerners telling them what to do, so we have the goal of enrolling as many Japanese organizations, NGO’s and government officials as possible, and Takepart.com is working on that effort.”

In past years, Oprah has done a wonderful job using Earth Day to draw attention to conservation and environmental issues. We can only imagine that discussing The Cove will also lead to open dialog about other ocean life in peril — like bluefin tuna, sharks, and whales.

Stay tuned as we learn more about what’s planned for the big O’s green day.
