End The Senseless Slaughter In Taiji

Bottlenose Dolphin Capture Taiji The Cove Captive Selection Captivity

#TakeAction

The dolphin drive hunts that take place each year in Taiji, Japan, have garnered international attention as the world has learned about the mass slaughter of dolphins and the ruthless captive selection process. These brutal hunts are documented by our team of Cove Monitors each season, and shared with the international public so that attention may be drawn to this outdated and unnecessarily cruel practice.

Please help today by taking the following action steps:

1. TAKE THE PLEDGE NOT TO BUY A TICKET TO A CAPTIVE DOLPHIN SHOW

Share your pledge on social media and encourage others to join you!

 

2. SEND A LETTER TO PRIME MINISTER ABE

 

3. URGE BROOME, AUSTRALIA TO SUSPEND “SISTER CITY” TIES WITH TAIJI, JAPAN

 

4. JOIN DOLPHIN PROJECT ON THE FRONT LINES IN TAIJI
