Great News for Dolphins and Whales!

BREAKING NEWS ON THE JAPAN DOLPHIN FRONT

It was just announced that Japanese Aquariums will cease buying live captive dolphins caught in the cruel Taiji drive fishery.  This a huge news in the effort to stop the Taiji dolphin killing and capture operation.

The decision came as the result of building pressure on the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) that resulted in their vote to suspend the membership of the Japanese Zoos and Aquariums unless they ceased all sourcing of dolphins from the bloody drive hunts in Taiji.

This development is a stunning blow against the dolphin killers of Taiji.  If the Japanese aquariums follow through with this new ban on these captive dolphins, it will take millions of yen out of the Taiji dolphin killers’ pockets and could render the entire Taiji killing operation uneconomic and unsustainable.
