Captive dolphins

The Dolphin Trade

Solomon Islands - In the tiny, war-torn Islands, poor fishermen were payed to capture wild dolphins for sale on the international market. As many as 200 dolphins have been captured. The first 28 of these dolphins have been shipped to Mexico to be used in a "swim-with-dolphins" attraction.

  • Iceland slaughter of Minke Whales - Iceland, like Japan, is exploiting a loophole in the world-wide moratorium imposed by the International Whaling Commission (IWC) on commercial whaling, by claiming its hunt have a scientific basis. Strong concerns were expressed about the scientific validity of the 'scientific whaling proposal' presented by Iceland to the IWC in June 2005. Thirty nine of the Scientific Committee's national delegates, from many different nations, concluded that, not only was Iceland's research proposal poorly contrived and unlikely to yield any relevant results, but that it was 'deficient in almost every respect'. Iceland's scientific programme is just a cover for re-instigating a commercial whaling programme.

  • Caribbean Corruption is Killing Whales - By taking foreign aide, from Japan, Caribbean Nations are forced to support the re-start of global whaling. In recent years, Domnicia's, St. Vincent's and St. Lucia's small cetacean hunts have included pilot whales, pygmy sperm whales, pygmy killer whales, false killer whales, Fraser's dolphins, Risso's dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, rough-toothed dolphins, and Cuvier s beaked whales.
  • Dolphin Slaughtering in Japan - Japanese fishermen, with the support of the Japanese government, slaughter thousands of dolphins and porpoises yearly in a brutal manner. Not only is this harming the populations, but it is also hurting the people of Japan. The dolphin meat with its high levels of toxic heavy metals and organochlorines is often sold to the unsuspecting public as whalemeat. Japanese law must end this brutal slaughter and protect the welfare of the Japanese people.
  • Captive Dolphins at Manati Park Bavaro - In 1999 the Dolphin tank at Manati Park Bavaro was investigated by the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society, who reported that the living conditions of the dolphins were not acceptable. The issue of May 21st of Time Magazine stated Manati Park as:".. one of the world's most controversial facilities.." Worse, critics charge that "several dolphins have died prematurely at Manati because of toxic waters." According to CITES documentation only five of the original imported and captured eight dolphins are still there now.
  • Ban Fishing in U.S. Waters for Countries that Hunt Whales - Countries that hunt whales, are a continued threat to creatures which are already in danger of extinction. We as a civilized society must take a stand to protect these creatures from every country that would hunt them into extinction.
