We have to act now ! The construction of the zoo is not expected to begin for three to four years .
The zoo will feature mud flats, also known as tidal flats, are coastal wetlands, aquariums , beaches , with its own oceanside entrance in Moriura Bay closed off by a 430-metre net. "
*** Taiji's mayor, Kazutaka Sangen says the construction of the zoo would not coincide with *** an end to the Dolphin Hunt.
The Cove exposes the bloody reality of Taiji's dolphin hunt :

"We will continue hunting dolphins and establish Taiji as a town of whales, however much criticism we get from abroad," he told the Asahi Shimbun newspaper.
TAIJI fishermen /hunters / confuse the poor Dolphins by banging metal poles on the side of their boats and then herd them into the cove before massacring them with knives , spears and harpoons.
An endless butchery during months !
The young dolphins are sharply captured while their mothers are slaughtered!
*** Pls send your message to stop the construction of this zoo in Taiji , where tourists will now be able to swim and play with the DOLPHINS near where the cull takes place.
Thank you

 

Letter to
Taiji Mayor Mr Kazutaka Sangen
Governor of Wakayama prefecture Mr Yoshiki Kimura
Dear Sir,
Please Cancel plans to build a Dolphin Zoo in Taiji .
We are upset to hear that you are considering plans for a zoo in three or four years .
As we know , the zoo will feature mud flats, also known as tidal flats, are coastal wetlands, aquariums , beaches , with its own oceanside entrance in Moriura Bay closed off by about a 430-metre net. "
It's very sad and alarming that Taiji's mayor, Mr Kazutaka Sangen says the construction of the zoo would not coincide with *** an end to the Dolphin Hunt.

An endless butchery during months shocking seriously the International Community and the medias.
We are sure you're aware, Japan has a not a good reputation because annual massacres in Taiji . And it is very sad for a wonderful country and for the japanese citizens.
*Building a zoo where tourists will now be able to swim and play with the dolphins near where the cull takes place is not the best idea for the reputation of TAIJI .
And this will be worst .
Zoos , Aquariums which confine animals to small tanks and force them to swim in endless circles or with humans and to perform unnatural tricks for tourists , present a very distorted view of Wildlife. The only thing that they teach people is that it is acceptable to keep wild and wonderful animals, in captivity .
Please don't let this ZOO be one more stain on TAIJI 's otherwise worldly reputation.

Thanks for your attention to this new issue concerning TAIJI
