Stop The Mutilation Of Pink Dolphins By Fishermen

Target: Gabriel Vallejo López, Minister of Environment and Sustainable Development

Goal: Stop fishermen from mutilating pink dolphins.

Pink dolphins, also known as Amazon river Dolphins, are facing severe endangerment due to many factors. Urban development and water contamination are destroying their habitats, but the most horrifying cause is fishermen cruelly cutting off their fins to use as bait and leaving the mutilated dolphins to bleed to death.

The practice of ripping the fins off of these innocent creatures is barbaric and it must be stopped. It is bad enough when humanity destroys the habitats of aquatic wildlife via careless pollution and taking urban development too far, but what these fishermen are doing is willfully cruel and inhumane. This practice is most common in the Amazon and in China, and is slowly spreading to other locations.

These dolphins do not deserve to die slow and painful deaths just so these people can have slightly better bait. We must do more to protect the species and their habitat on the whole, but we must especially stop fishermen from killing them to use their flesh as bait. Sign this petition to demand the cruel mutilation of these innocent, gentle creatures be completely outlawed.


Dear Minister Villamizar,

The pink dolphin is facing more and more endangerment each day due to several factors, but the most severe is fishermen cutting off their fins to use as bait. Too many dolphins have been mutilated and left to die painfully, just so these people can have better bait to catch larger fish.

These innocent creatures deserve better. We cannot allow this to keep happening, you must outlaw the cruel practice of murdering innocent animals among fishermen. There are far more ethical bait sources to be used, as well as quality lures on the market. There is no need to cut the fins off of dolphins to catch quality fish.

Please stop fishermen from this willfully cruel and inhumane act. Do not let any more of these dolphins die due to human selfishness. You must implement and enforce new laws against the mutilation of dolphins for fishing bait.

  1. What type of backward barbaric nation would allow such vile things to occur and who are the vile subhumans that would do this type of thing to an animal? Well, Japan for one and now another STUPID nation!!!

    • Unfortunately the sad and horrific truth is that barbarity toward animals goes on in probably every country in the world. Some countries are worse than others though.

  2. There need to be laws that will be STRICTLY ENFORCED to stop these barbaric SADISTS from their cruel abuses of these dolphins.
