PUT AN END TO THE NOTORIOUS TAIJI DOLPHIN HUNT
0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!
Twenty dolphins were slaughtered on Friday in the southwestern Japanese town of Taiji, marking the beginning of the infamous annual dolphin hunt in Japan.
After being pressured by the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums in 2015, the Japanese Association of Zoos and Aquariums banned the buying and selling of dolphins from the controversial hunt. YET THE HUNT HAS NOT BEEN BANNED.
For this year’s hunt, which runs from September until March, the Japanese government set a kill quota of 1,820 dolphins of various species, according to the Dolphin Project, about the same as last year. In addition, trainers will be allowed to choose about 150 live bottlenose dolphins, which have been pre-sold to marine parks around the world. Many more dolphins are likely injured or killed than what is officially reported, the organization adds. THIS IS UNCONSCIONABLE!!
CONSIDERING THE GLOBAL SPOTLIGHT OF JAPAN FOR THE 2020 TOKYO OLYMPICS, LETS PUT PRESSURE ON THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT TO PUT AN END TO THIS BARBARIC "SPORT."
PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION AND LET US FIGHT FOR THE DOLPHINS TOGETHER
