We are less then 2 months away from, what could be, another bloody season in Taiji, Japan.
Taiji is a small fishing village of the coast of Southeastern Japan. It was made famous in 2010 when the award-winning documentary "The Cove" exposed the truth about the tiny town. Every year, between September and March, a handful of "fishermen" from the town kill hundreds, if not thousands, of dolphins. For a in depth look at the Taiji dolphin drive, please read our post The Dolphins of Taiji.
The online facebook community, Save Misty The Dolphin, has created an event to get everyone involved and ready to go, come September 1st. The event, Countdown to The Cove, is encouraging everyone to educate themselves and those around them about the horrific slaughter. Whether you are new to the dolphin movement, or have been around for years...Whether you have 5 minutes or 5 hours a day to commit to the cause, there is a way to get involved, to help the dolphins. Please take a stand! If needed, a dolphin would save your life without thinking...please do the same for them.
The Countdown has Begun!!!
