The Japanese people do not realize what is going on in this little village and they need to be made aware. The dolphin hunts in Taiji are excused by the fishermen as being part of their tradition, if the Japanese people agree that it is not acceptable then this can be changed. Please go to Taiji and see for yourselves what the Cove Guardians have witnessed since the hunt began on September 1st 2012.

      Ok, so it may not have been the report that we would have hoped for (it was for the fishermen not for the dolphins) but i still see it as a positive first step. The Japanese media is not known for publishing much on either side of the argument about Taiji, so to get them to post 2 articles in a day is a big achievement. As time goes on i hope to change their views but for now i am satisfied that our 7000 signatures has had an impact. Thank you to all so far and keep sharing! http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/english/news/20140120_42.html
