This is what Taiji Cove should always be like. Looks idyllic doesn’t it. It has been like this for 11 consecutive days which gives us watchers and the dolphins a little reprieve from the terrible human actions that turn this wonderful place red with the blood of dolphins after a successful drive hunt.

I will again be attending a protest opposite the Japanese Embassy on this Friday 21st February so I thought I would look at the statistics relating to the drive hunt up to 5th February this season. You can find them too at http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CCUQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ceta-base.com%2Fdrivefisheries.html&ei=p9AAU57DFc-rhAf6uIGACQ&usg=AFQjCNEtHZFQVhrL41avU9fo1kTEGVoDWQ&bvm=bv.61535280,d.ZG4&cad=rja

The temperature at lat February’s protest fell to around -4 degress but that did not deter us. It is an important issue and we vow not to be silent or stop protesting until the drive hunters do. Wondering what it will be like at the protest? take a peek at last year’s. We are a bit clicky but that is because we are a pod. If you want to make a stand for the dolphins we will welcome you with open fins.
