Stop the unnecessary slaughter and torture of Calderon dolphins in the Faroe Islands

Every year, hundreds of young adults participate in the massacre of hundreds of Calderon dolphins (Pilot whales) as a rite-of-passage, to show that they are adults and mature. On the contrary, this does not show their maturity, it shows their cruelty towards animals. These cruel humans hack off the flesh of living Calderon dolphins and watch them cry out in agony while they die a slow, painful death. Something must be done to stop this cruelty towards an intelligent species of animal, the Calderon dolphins. We must demand that the Government of Denmark and/or the Government of the Faroe Islands pass a law that prevents this cruel massacre.

  • Minister of Fisheries of the Faroe Islands
    Jakup Mikkelsen
  • Prime Minister of Denmark
    Helle Thorning-Schmidt
  • Prime Minister of the Faroe Islands
    Kaj Leo Johannesen
