A cry for help:
The slaughter of 20,000 dolphins, porpoises, and small whales occurs in Japan each year. Starting on September 1st and continuing through March of the next year, fishermen herd whole families of small cetaceans into shallow bays and mercilessly stab and drown them to death.

With your help, we can pressure Japan to end this cruel and destructive slaughter of dolphins. 

We can all make a difference. If you would like your voices to be heard, please contact the respective representatives to tell them the massacre must stop!
Read below to see how you can help:
You can help directly support the Cove Guardians by purchasing items from their Amazon Wish List.

Application process: Send e-mail to coveguardian@seashepherd.org and express your interest.
You will be sent an information packet that includes links to the Onshore Volunteer Application and a supplemental questionnaire for Cove Guardians.
You will submit that package either by electronic or physical mail.
You will be notified if you are selected and provided more detailed information to help you in booking your travels to and stay in Japan.
Don’t buy a ticket! A ticket purchased to a dolphin show buys blood in Taiji
The captive dolphin entertainment industry makes a lot of money from dolphin suffering and death. The way to shut them down is to take the profit out of their operations. By ending the demand for their shows, we can sink them economically.
Do not support these entertainment venues. Terminate your season passes. Encourage your friends and family to stay away from them. Do not include them in your holiday packages or cruises. Contact the parks and let them know how you feel about dolphins kept in captivity. Educate others on the link between the captive dolphin industry and the Taiji dolphin slaughter. Do not participate in captive dolphin programs like “swimming with the dolphins”
The Ceta-Base “Phinventory” is a list of captive dolphins world wide.

Spread the Word
Follow Operation Infinite Patience on social media and share with your friends and family. Ask them to help us end this atrocity.
Contact the Authorities
Help us end the brutal Taiji dolphin slaughter by voicing your concerns to the authorities in Taiji as well as the Japanese Embassy, US Embassy to Japan, US and Japanese Ambassadors to the UN, and the US Senate members of the Committee on Foreign Relations.
