Father and son team Ric and Lincoln O'Barry, who were featured in the Academy Award winning documentary The Cove, can now be seen in Animal Planet's Blood Dolphins. The three part miniseries tells the story of the O'Barrys efforts to stop dolphin slaughter. In the first episode, Ric and Lincoln returned to the site of The Cove (Taiji, Japan), where 20,000 dolphins are slaughtered every year.

Watch the Coconut Grove natives in the second episode 9 p.m. Friday. Tough to stomach, but a must for any environmentalist and animal lover.
