Target: Japan Airlines & Air China
Goal: Stop airlines from transporting dolphins caught at the Taiji hunt and slaughter.
At the beginning of September of every year, Japan’s dolphin hunting season starts and does not end until March. Thousands of dolphins and porpoises are murdered in the Cove of Taiji for their meat. These dolphins are cruelly captured and led into the cove and killed ruthlessly by local fishermen. Some are captured and confined in small cages until they are sold. Despite protests worldwide, Japan’s dolphin market is still flourishing and it must be stopped.
Dolphins that are lucky enough to not be slaughered at the cove in Taiji, Japan are captured and shipped to faraway countries to be forced to perform in animal enclosures. The money generated by the sale of these captured dolphins to foreign countries helps fund the annual dolphin slaughter at Taiji. At the heart of this operation are the airlines that fly the dolphins from Japan to their new enclosures. Specifically, Japan Airline and Air China transport most of the dolphins that have been captured.
By pressuring these airlines to stop transporting dolphins on their flights, we can take a major step towards shutting down the dolphin slaughter. If the killers cannot sell live dolphins to foreign lands, much of the money that funds the slaughter will dry up.
Let’s tell Japan Airlines and Air China that we will not stand for their support of the dolphin slaughter.
