Our friends are highly intelligent. They save us, protect us, swim beside us, alert us of danger and yet, we are their biggest threat and their only hope.
In a Japanese village called Taiji, also known as 'The Cove',
dolphins are a hunted target, for a six-month long fishing season.
The fate of dolphins captured, are held in captivity for use in
ill-equipped amusement parks, for display aquariums
and the remainder are slaughtered for meat.
Although the Japanese Fisheries Agency have strict quoters in place, regular abuse of the regulations takes place.
The only hope for our friends, is if we step in to put an end to this practice.
