Ric O'Barry stands and fights for dolphins in Japan, Switzerland and Germany day after day, to see the end of the unjust slaughter of dolphins. The ones that are not killed become entertainment for the public eye. Whales are also victims and become forced to perform tricks in tanks which they cannot survive for a long period of time. most of the population within Japan don't realise they are eating dolphin and the meat they consume is heavily contaminated with mercury. The dolphins and whales go through antagonising pain and may be left to drown slowly and painfully if the wounds do not kill them right away. The dolphins and whales that are not killed are transported around the world for tourist atractions such as aquariums where they are forced to perform tricks. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtxjoMd3p3o. The reason i aim to petition Japan is simply because they do not have any animal welfare laws and is the main reason dolphins and whales suffer such a grate deal of pain, instead of being able to roam the ocean. please make a stand and help these beautiful mammals.

      Scientists have declared that some species of cetaceans are noted for their high intelligence are "Non-human persons". At the 2012 meeting in Vancouver, Canada, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (the world's biggest science conference), support was reiterated for a cetacean bill of rights, listing cetaceans as "non-human persons"

      They are not fish, but HIGHLY EVOLVED intelligent beings with self awareness only the highest primates have like humans able to recognise themselves as individuals, they have a complex language, when studied it revealed they have a family second surname and an individual name used but the whole pod just like we have.

      Dolphins & whales are without any doubt some of the most highly evolved sacred beings. The unnatural killing of dolphins & whales in Japan is hurting so many people now aware of it all over the world, who are so deeply disturbed by it as its is fundamental deeply disturbing completely unnatural, sadistically and cruel.

      How the Japanese officials can allow such a sacred divine animal to be sadistically slaughtered in the most horrific cruelty imaginable is extremely deeply disturbing to the rest of the world. The world will never be at peace until the Japanese top killing dolphins and whales, neither has a predator in the natural world. It’s a horrific hell they have made in this killing Taiji cove, Japan, is so unnatural A-dharma is against our Divine Mother Nature and almighty God.

      There are countless stories of Dolphins and Beluga Whales saving swimmers from drowning, which makes them guardians of human life as such they are then angels in the seas. More than this they are known to bravely attack sharks to save human life they have no bond with, this makes them very special.

      The unnatural killing of dolphins by the Japanese is hurting so many people now aware of it all over the world, people are so deeply disturbed by it as its is completely unnatural, sadistically cruel, and fundamental deeply disturbing.
