Small cetaceans, namely dolphins are not protected by the International Whaling Commission (IWC). In fact, the IWC affords no protections for 71 (out of 80, known) cetacean species, including all dolphins and porpoises, which is why Japan can legally kill them by the tens of thousands. International law provides no protections against the killing of dolphins, and other slaughters occur in places outside of Japan.

International Whaling Commission
Protect the Dolphins!

      bulk of dolphins been killed in Denmark Though it may seem unbelievable, but even today this brutal, dantesque and bloody slaughter of dolphins are still carried out each year in the Faroe Islands which belong to Denmark. A country supposedly "civilized" and belonging to the European Union.

      Todos os seres tem direito à vida, a liberdade, ao respeito, humanidade e compaixão dos animais humanos. Os animais não humanos não estão aqui para nos servir, são companheiros de jornada, terráqueos como todos nós.

      We are not the masters of this planet. We have no rights to decide who will live or die. Only Nature does.

      Behind every cruelty lies a guilty man who has committed it. And 1,000 more people who have not prevented it. I don't want to be one of them!

      This massacre must stop, it is inhumane and unnecessary. Man must be forced to act with compassion.
