The following are ways for you to consider taking action on, in order to protect and conserve Whales & Dolphins.
Elsa Nature Conservancy
This Japanese organisation is not limited to protecting Whales & Dolphins. Established in 1976, Elsa looks for the blind spots of the conservation movement – things others have forgotten about – and has campaigned for the protection of animals that are going extinct unnoticed, such as the Japanese reed bunting. The organization was campaigning for dolphin and elephant protection before the media took up these issues. It has also continued the debate in opposition to vivisection, as well as criticism of safari parks, zoos, and aquariums. For more information, click on the link below:
STOP the killing of whales IN ICELAND
From the WDC - "Olof Ýrr Atladóttir is director-general of the Icelandic Tourist Board. The Tourist Board is part of Iceland’s Ministry of Industries and Innovation. The Ministry also oversees whaling, so Olof is in a unique position. She can influence both tourism and whaling issues. Urge her to support those who wish to see Iceland made famous as a Whale Nation, not a whaling nation. ADD YOUR VOICE AND WRITE TO OLOF NOW.
Call to Action - Stop Airlines Transporting Dolphins
Help stop the transporting of Dolphins that contribute to the continued killings and entrapment that takes place in places like Taiji. Happily Singapore Airlines in Singapore where I am living, is one of the airlines that say NO to transporting them. The following is from the Whale and Dolphin Conservancy....
"During the 2014-15 season, nearly 800 dolphins were killed in Taiji. An additional 80 individuals were selected alive for captivity.
Quotas have been set for the 2015-16 season in Taiji allowing hunters to slaughter 1,873 dolphins. Over 900 bottlenose and striped dolphins may be killed, along with hundreds of other spotted, Risso’s, pacific white-sided dolphins, false killer whales and short-finned pilot whales.
We are calling on airlines to stop carrying live dolphins, and especially those captured in the cruel Japanese hunts. As the demand from countries such as China increases, we need to break the chain by stopping the transport of these dolphins."
Ask Star Alliance airlines to stop transporting dolphins from drive hunts. Please sign this petition today! Visit the WDC Petition page and help stop airlines transporting dolphins from drive hunts to marine parks.
