PLEASE read and learn about what’s happening RIGHT NOW. Sea World and dolphin parks may seem like a fun family vacation, but do you know the price of that vacation? Do you know how those sea mammals are captured and slaughtered if they aren’t “perfect” for the job or the dinner plate?
Please think about where the animals are coming from and the horrific slaughter involved. It is happening. It is in your control to help stop this. Be a cove guardian not a supporter.

The slaughter of 20,000 dolphins, porpoises, and small whales occurs in Japan each year. Starting on September 1st and usually continuing through March of the next year, fishermen herd whole families of small cetaceans into a shallow bays and mercilessly stab and drown them to death.
This annual slaughter of dolphins was virtually unknown until 2003 when Sea Shepherd globally released covertly-obtained film and photographs of the now infamous bloody “Cove” in a village called Taiji. Starting in 2010 and continuing to this day, Sea Shepherd has a ongoing presence of volunteers standing watch on site at the Cove. They are The Cove Guardians.
With your help, we will continue to pressure Japan to end this cruel and destructive slaughter of dolphins. Because we are passionate, dedicated, and committed it may take time, but determination will win the day eventually for the dolphins at Taiji. We invite you to explore this site and support our efforts!
