In six days, the horrific slaughter will once again begin.
Every year in September dolphins are herded into the infamous #the cove. The dolphins are slaughtered mercilessly (see the quota in an earlier post) the ones not slaughtered will be taken by marine mammal trainers for swim with the dolphin programs and shows.
By supporting marine parks who do this, you are supporting the slaughter.
So what can you do?
Donate to @dolphin_project Or save Japan’s Dolphins.
Volunteer, right a letter to the Japanese embassy. Sign a petition!
But most of all DONT BUY A TICKET to marine parks that have cetaceans.

hello, fun fact, not all marine parks participate in drive fisheries and boycotting them does nothing to help Japanese dolphins at all. To check to see if the facility you plan on visiting is at all involved in Taiji, see if they are on this list. If they are, they have not been involved with drive fisheries for 20+ years!
Boycotting does nothing to help the dolphins being slaughtered, but neither does visiting except show the companies that do profit in these hunts that there is still a market there.
Also if the parks have not been involved for 20+ years why? If I were a park holding cetaceans and cared for these animals I would want to raise awareness and try to make them stop slaughtering the breed I cared for and about.
Not really a fun fact….
