Japan Dolphins Day 2019

Japan Dolphins Day 2019 Taiji Slaughter Awareness

Dolphin Project is proud to sponsor our annual Japan Dolphins Day event to mark the start of the hunting season in Taiji, Japan. Activists around the world will be joining in peaceful demonstration to educate the public, as well as to voice international opposition to the hunts.

We hope you and/or your organization will join us in celebrating Japan Dolphins Day on or around September 1, 2019. By organizing a positive, celebratory event in your city, we unite to show Japan, as well as the rest of the world, that the massacre of dolphins in Taiji is a crime against nature and must end immediately. Together, we can make our voices heard and inform others about this tragedy.

Please note that this is a positive event to protect dolphins. Our goal is to spotlight the killing of dolphins in Taiji, as well as throughout Japan, using positive and informative language to raise awareness. We do not condone hateful, derogatory, or racist language of any kind. Our role is to encourage the Japanese people to learn more about the hunts and to take positive action on their own, through opposing captivity, avoiding the consumption of dolphin and whale meat, and promoting environmentally-responsible economic activities. Our goal is to make this the biggest global event celebrating Japan dolphins yet!
