Save Angel from a lifetime of hell

    1. Petition by

      Australia for Dolphins

Angel is a beautiful albino dolphin calf who once swam freely alongside her mother in the Pacific Ocean off Taiji, Japan. But earlier this year, Angel was captured by dolphin hunters.

As she was dragged away in a net, Angel saw her mother and family being herded into a shallow cove where they were stabbed to death in agony.

Tell local authorities to release Angel from her cruel conditions - and end the inhumane practice of dolphin hunting for good. 

Angel was taken to a local aquarium, the Taiji Whale Museum, where she is now a "freak" exhibit. She's confined in a tiny indoor tank. Eyewitnesses say she floats lifelessly, or swims in distressed circles with her eyes often closed. With her mother dead, Angel has no one to help her except us.

Please ask the Taiji government, which owns the Whale Museum, to release Angel into a shaded sea pen. The Whale Museum already has sea pens in a next-door natural lagoon so this is a feasible option. It will vastly improve Angel's quality of life while options for her full release into the wild are explored.

With enough signatures, we will personally deliver the petition to the Mayor of Taiji in mid-May.

We can't ever reunite Angel with her mother, but we can free her from her life of hell in a tiny tank. Please help us help her.

      The protection of this rare albino dolphin and the thousands of other dolphins is for the welfare of the world's dolphin species to live free in their natural habitat.
