Save the Dolphins in Taiji

Taiji, Japan is known as the “ground zero” for live, captive dolphins supplied to marine parks and swim-with-dolphin programs around the world. The remaining dolphins, who are not selected by dolphin trainers for a life of captivity, are brutally and inhumanely slaughtered for human consumption, even though the meat contains toxic levels of mercury.  Over 20,000 dolphins are slaughtered in this inhumane manner annually. For further education on the topic, please click here.

To view video clips of the travesty of what is happening in the cove in Taiji, please click here.  We encourage you to watch all video clips, starting with the one below, to have a full understanding of why so many are fighting to see this end.

This website aims to provide a how-to guide of action items for those who want to speak out on behalf of the dolphins and whales in Taiji through various means of communication — online and offline.

Take action on Facebook now. Take action on Twitter now. Provide strength in numbers, and sign these petitions now. Send faxes & e-mails, and make phone calls now.

Here is a complete list of Dolphinariums worldwide.  Please find and contact your local aquariums and parks to assure that they are not purchasing their dolphins from Taiji.  If they are, make it clear that you, your family and friends will not be patronizing them until they discontinue.

Call, e-mail, fax, and write your local Japanese embassy or consulate and tell them you oppose the dolphin slaughter in Taiji. If the information on this list is incorrect, please use Google or another search engine of your choice to find the most up-to-date information. Please e-mail us corrections.
