Demonstration Friday March 28th in Front of the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA), Switzerland

Why: Japanese Aquariums are Taking Advantage of Bloody Taiji Dolphin Hunts to Get Display Dolphins by Paying High Prices for Live Dolphins, Thereby Subsidizing the Hunters and the Slaughter

What: Demonstration & Meeting with WAZA

When: Friday, March 28th, 1 to 3 PM CET

Where: WAZA Executive Office, Rue Mauverney 28, 1196 Gland, Switzerland

A wild dolphin caught in Taiji, for example, will sell for around $500-600 US for its meat. But a live trained dolphin will sell on the international market for as much as $150,000 US. The huge prices offered by JAZA and WAZA member aquariums for live dolphins sustain the brutal Taiji killing of hundreds of dolphins each year, which would likely collapse without the aquarium trade.
