In the small fishing village of Taiji in Japan, hunters ambush entire schools of dolphins and force the panicked animals into shallow waters after a prolonged chase. Once they're trapped inside the cove, the hunters stab them to death with spears or knives. The water turns red with their blood, and the air is filled with their screams. This horrific massacre goes on for six months every year.
In the 2018–2019 hunt, 556 dolphins were slaughtered and 241 taken captive. This doesn't include the elderly, young, sick, and injured dolphins who are unable to keep up with their family during the chase and whose fate is unknown.
Please send an e-mail to the governor of Wakayama Prefecture urging him to use his influence to help stop the slaughter of dolphins.
