💔🐬 let’s end the dolphin hunt/slaughter in taiji for good. our team is creating a short film that will refute the dolphin hunters recent claims and help close this dark chapter of animal abuse once and for all. support now - link in bio. let's keep the pressure on: the cove 2.0 last month, the dolphin hunters in taiji, japan, broke an 8-year silence about their slaughtering of dolphins. speaking in the international press, they claimed that since #thecove came out, they have developed new, improved killing techniques that are more humane - that dolphins die more quickly and painlessly. what the dolphin killers don’t know is that we have high definition footage of this killing method, and we want to create a new film with this unpublished material that will silence them forever. we can expose the truth. our film, the cove, became one of the most winning documentaries in history, but what we’re most proud of is that exposure from the cove resulted in tens of thousands of dolphins and porpoises not being slaughtered every year. activism, largely inspired by the film and campaigns that followed, led to an 82% reduction of small cetacean slaughters in japan. ops’s activation campaign delivered 3,444 japanese versions of the cove to every single person that lived in taiji. almost overnight, the demand for dolphin meat for human consumption declined by 60% in that town. we also sent the cove to everyone who worked at a japanese embassy and japanese consulate. we want to create a short film for the japanese media (in japanese and english languages) that will systematically and authoritatively refute their claims. we are looking for your support as we set out to raise $175,000 to create a short film that will refute the dolphin hunters claims and help close this dark chapter in this animals abuse once and for all. please support this important project - click link in bio ☝️💙🐬

For this week’s #freedomfriday feature with @keiko_conservation (yes we are a few days late, sorry!) we wanted to highlight this video from @adventureworld_smiles (#アドベンチャーワールド ) in japan. can you imagine being taken from your family and forced to live life in a single room? our full feature on this facility will be coming out next week.
go to opsociety.org to learn all about the global movement we created with the film #thecove or go to cetabase.org to dive in deep on the history and records of captive dolphins. and make sure you're following @dolphin_project to stay up to date on this year's taiji drive fishery season.
as always, feel free to repost and spread the word. 🌊

🐋🐋🐋 humpback whales can grow to over 50 feet in length and are loved for their visible and charismatic personalities, highly sociable and intelligent behavior, for their spectacular breaching displays, and for the way mother whales will allow their calves to interact with people. 💙 save the whales!

Calling out $eaworld with a 100-foot message in the sky: the ringling bros.' decision to end the use of elephants in its circus shows (and then shut down for good shortly thereafter) is just the beginning of the end of using wild animals for human entertainment. will dolphins and whales be next? we must keep the pressure on #seaworld and other abusement parks! #emptythetanks #blackfish #projectingchange
