Every year on September 1st, the Dolphin hunt starts in Taiji, Japan. Around 500 dolphins will be driven into the infamous cove in Taiji, Japan, where they will be sorted into groups. Some dolphins will be stolen from their homes to be sold to marine parks and the others will be slaughtered for their flesh.
The fisher people cover the cove with tarp to hide the gruesome activities and to prevent cameras capturing the blood shed and violence.
Please join activists across the globe on September 1st for an international day of protest against dolphin slaughter. The goal of the protests is to open the eyes of the public to the immense suffering and exploitation of dolphins in the food and entertainment industries, inspire the public to take a pledge NOT buy a ticket to dolphins captive facilities (or any captive facilities), and NOT to consume marine animals.
Suggested actions you can take on September 1st in your city/country or region:
- Hold a city vigil near Japanese embassy
- Hold a demonstration or vigil outside a marine park
- Hold an outreach booth to show what happens to dolphins when they are captured and sent to marine parks
- Sign the Dolphin Project pledge not to buy tickets to captivity facilities and encourage others to do the same
- Organize a screening of “The Cove” or of “Blackfish”
- Promote “Seaspiracy”
