BENEFITING: EARTH ISLAND INSTITUTE INC
It was brought to my attention once I watched THE COVE (I highly encourage people to watch this movie).
Dolphins in Taiji, Japan are being slaughtered. They sell the dead dolphins as meat in supermarkets. People who buy the meat don't necessarily know that it is dolphin- being that Taiji has the image of a friendly dolphin community. The dolphins have mercury which is very harmful to humans. Dolphins should live free in the ocean. They should not be held in captivity for our entertainment, and certainly not be killed for not "making the cut". Please help me raise awareness and donations for this cause. Donations are tax-deductible, and will help the crew travel to Taiji, Japan to keep spreading awareness, monitor The Cove, and communicate with their Japanese colleagues to have screening of The Cove in Japan. This will also help present the two million petition to Japanese officials.
I thank-you, and I know the dolphins do too.
WE ARE THEIR BIGGEST THREAT AND THEIR ONLY HOPE!
