Sign the Petition to

President Shinzo Abe and Kenichiro Sasae, Ambassador of Japan to the United States

Dear Sirs,
we the undersigned are horrified that the slaughter of more than 20,000 dolphins and porpoises is occurring each year off of the coast of Japan.
It is also worrying that Japanese consumers are being sold dolphin meat, containing dangerously high levels of mercury, often labeled as whale meat.

We urge the Japanese government to revoke permits that allow Japan's Fisheries Agency to continue this heinous, dangerous and illegal practice.

Your immediate action to this is needed.
Sincerely..

Signed,

Justice for Mary

The Dolphin killing season in Taiji Japan is due to recommence again very soon - September 1st.

The local Fishermen herd hundreds of Dolphins into a Cove and slaughter them, only sparing a few of the younger Dolphins that they believe will be able to be sold to the Aquariums for a good price.

The meat from the slaughtered Dolphins ends up in supermarkets and restaurants across Asia.

The majority of the world is not aware this is happening. 

The Taiji cove is blocked off from the public. 

Cameras are not allowed inside and the media does not cover the story.

Despite more International attention to this cruelty now the Dolphins and small whales continue to be subjected to horrific cruelty.

It is hoped that as more Japanese become aware and start protesting against this cruelty that an eventual end to the horror is closer than ever.

Tweet these facts to help raise awareness for the dolphins of Taiji.

Over 20,000 dolphins and porpoises are killed in Japan each year. www.takepart.com/cove #DolphinProject
