How to help the Taiji Dolphins – Information Credit – Sea Shepherd Cove Guardians

brightFor the first two weeks of this season’s hunting no dolphins or small whales have been driven into the cove. There have been a couple of occasions where pods have fought hard and outsmarted the hunters. The dolphins are in my mind and thousands of other peoples’ each night as the boats go out. We all focus on the Cove being blue which means that no capture or killing has taken place that day.

Even though the hunt as been unsuccessful thus far there are captive dolphins being held at the Cove which are being trained for human entertainment.

These dolphins are being conditioned to eat dead fish and are sold to marine parks around the world. They are untrained and usually sell for less than trained dolphins.
Included are Bottlenose, Pantropical Spotted and Pacific White Sided dolphins all taken from the killing cove from last season.

There are ways that you can campaign against this brutal enterprise. I found this information on the Sea Shepherd Cove Guardian Facebook page and it is so useful that I transferred it here.
