The Cove filmmakers force closure of restaurant

The filmmakers joined sea-life activists and investigators at the Oceanic Preservation Society after picking up gold at the Academy Awards earlier this month (Mar10) to shoot undercover footage of restaurant The Hump in Santa Monica, California.

The Hump’s bosses now face misdemeanour charges and fines for offering up banned seafood on their menu.

The owners have chosen to close the restaurant as a “self-imposed punishment”. They also plan to make “substantial contributions” to charities dedicated to saving whales and endangered creatures.
