Stop promoting travel in Taiji

Dolphin drive hunting is a big problem globally as hundreds are cruelly slaughtered in a slow and agonising process. Additionally, many of these wild, beautiful creatures are separated from their families and brought into captivity to perform and to 'interact with humans'.

Many Australian owned and run tourism websites such as Lonely Planet are still advertising appealing travel options to Taiji, where the biggest drive hunts happen each year. It might be heaven on earth for humans, but no doubt it's hell on earth for dolphins.

I am calling for a stop to the promotion of tourism in Taiji by Australian companies as a show of support to the right of animals. This is in line with a common cultural belief that these intelligent mammals should not be used to entertainment. Buying a ticket to a dolphinarium is supporting the slaughter of these innocent, helpless animals.
