The Walrus and The Whistleblower follows Niagara Falls-native Phil Demers, known as the ‘Walrus Whisperer.” Phil worked a decade-long dream-job as a trainer at MarineLand Park in Niagara Falls, Ontario, swimming with killer whales and training belugas, seals, and Smooshi, the walrus he raised and trained since arriving as a young pup. Phil then quit and blew the whistle citing animal abuse, and called for an end to the 60-year-old practice of keeping marine mammals in pools. Now Phil is being sued for 1.5 million dollars from the amusement park but nothing is stopping him from his mission to #SaveSmooshi.

Winning the Audience Award – the highest rated film with audiences – at this spring’s Hot Docs International Film Festival, qualifies The Walrus and the Whistleblower for consideration at the Oscars in the Documentary Feature category.

The Walrus and The Whistleblower was made in association with documentary Channel and CBC Docs.
