With the annual dolphin slaughter well underway in Taiji, Japan, we need to come together to use our voices to try and put an end to this horrific event. In years past, we have seen Hayden Panettiere speak out about this cause, and even travel to Taiji to see first hand what is going on inside the cove.
More than 200 dolphins are being slaughtered in Taiji right now. Please support & follow @whaleman1 to help end this cruel & needless hunt!

This year more dolphins have been lured into the cove than previous years. The dolphins that are not murdered are selected for theme parks and sent all over the world. Along with Hayden, many others have been speaking out about this issue. Caroline Kennedy Tweeted,
Deeply concerned by inhumaneness of drive hunt dolphin killing. USG opposes drive hunt fisheries.

Due to the increased awareness of the ongoing crisis in Taiji, local fisherman are now hiding behind a tarpaulin in order to try to shield the world from seeing the truth. As you may remember, in 2009, a documentary titled The Cove was the catalyst on getting the world talking about this issue. The inhumane killings must end, and we commend Hayden on her continued efforts on supporting this cause.
