IMATA TRAINERS: DON'T TRAIN TAIJI DOLPHINS!

    1. Save Misty The Dolphin
    2. Petition by

      Save Misty The Dolphin

      Taiji, Japan

If IMATA stands behind its claims to be committed to the conservation and appreciation of dolphins, the organization cannot at the same time accept dolphins from any drive hunt. IMATA cannot continue to accept dolphins caught in the Taiji Drive "Fishery" and expect the public to believe that the association is concerned for the welfare of dolphins. We request that you issue a statement to your membership immediately. Such a statement should send a clear signal that IMATA, in deed as well as mission, truly supports the appreciation and welfare of dolphins in the wild and that IMATA encourages its members and member facilities to refuse to work with any of the 101 bottlenose dolphins caught and selected in the Hunt on December 12-17, 2012 or any dolphins caught in Taiji, Japan.

ONCE YOU HAVE SIGNED THE PETITION, PLEASE CONTINUE TO CALL, FAX & EMAIL IMATA TO LET THEM KNOW YOUR OPINION ON THIS MATTER:

IMATA 1200 South Lake Shore Drive Chicago, IL 60605-2490 Phone: 312-692-3193 Fax: 312-939-2216 Email: info@imata.org
