"In 1975 Bill Wattenburg narrated this TV documentary which stopped the unnecessary killing of millions of dolphins by the tuna fishing fleets. Bill stepped in after big name celebrities declined because some advertisers threatened to boycott their television shows if they narrated this film. Two days after this documentary aired on national television, congress outlawed the old tuna fishing nets that were trapping and killing the dolphins.
This documentary gave the National Marine Mammal agency great attention and new authority to protect marine mammals such as the dolphins. Unfortunately, this agency, like most bureaucracies, eventually become another cancerous, bloated bureaucracy that routinely intimidates and blackmails fishermen on both coasts of the United States. They are an army of political shills who operate as policeman, judge and jury. They extort millions of dollars from hapless victims to support their private fleet of yachts and aircraft -- and lush vacations for their executives and judges. They are being investigated by congress, but not enough is being done to stop their gestapo -type tactics. Dr. Bill Wattenburg has become their strongest critic on national radio and television. "
