Taiji Japan - Join the Cove Guardians to help stop the slaughter of innocent dolphins and whales. http://bit.ly/IR1KCs

via Crowdrise 2 years ago

THE STORY:

OUR FRIENDS ARE IN TROUBLE!

More than 20,000 dolphins and porpoises are slaughtered off the coast of Japan every year. The majority of the world is not aware this is happening.

What can you do to help?

1. Learn the Dirty Secret: Watch "The Cove" here is a link to the trailer

2. Spread the Word.

3. Join the team and/or donate what you can.

Sea Shepherd Conservation Society has had a long and successful history with defending and protecting small cetaceans. Unlike whales, small cetaceans (e.g., dolphins, pilot whales, belugas, and orcas) do not have an international body like the International Whaling Commission to regulate the killing. There are simply no regulations or the regulations are ignored. Sea Shepherd has intervened over the years to disrupt these killings, to initiate worldwide protests, and to keep media and public pressure on those responsible through articles, films, and interventions.

There are many problems facing dolphins around the world, such as:

•Fishing methods that kill (purse seine, driftnets, gillnets, by-catch, etc)
•Entanglement in fishing gear
•Captivity
•Marine pollution (pesticides, heavy metals, plastics, industrial and agricultural pollutants)
•Habitat degradation
•Low frequency sonar
•Boat traffic
Sea Shepherd has employed our unique brand of direct action against the killing of dolphins in the Faeroe Islands and Japan

Thank you for your help.
