To the protestors around the world on dolphin day, september 1,
when we began this fight, there were 23,000 dolphins and porpoises allowed to be killed in japan for human consumption. two years ago, 1669 were killed - that was a 93% reduction! and every year the numbers keeps going down. last year 610 dolphins were killed. still 610 too many - but we are winning, and you are being heard. people in japan are waking up to the fact that dolphin meat is toxic. dolphin meat has anywhere from 5-5000 times more mercury than allowed by japanese law and world health organization standards. mercury is the most toxic non-radioactive element in the world - it’s especially toxic to the developing brains of young children. yet, the japanese ministry of health still has recommendations on their website for a pregnant woman to eat dolphin meat!!! this is insanity! eating dolphin meat to get nutrition is like smoking cigarettes to get vitamin c. serving dolphin meat to anyone, especially a pregnant woman is criminal. when we began these protests the mayor of taiji and the dolphin hunters were serving dolphin meat to school children. because of protestors like you - that’s not happening anymore. thank you for what you all are doing - with each protest you are nudging humanity closer to being more humane. our own species name, h**o sapiens means, “the wise ones.” but we’re not the only wise ones on this planet. we’re not the only compassionate ones. throughout history dolphins are the only wild animal known to routinely save humans in trouble. by showing up today to help dolphins in trouble you are also helping humanity live up to our name. let’s not stop until our aquatic cousins are off the menu - let’s not stop protesting until all dolphins are out of the tanks. by protesting, you’re fighting on the side of angels - you are the wise ones. thank you all!

I shot this photo of trump in atlantic city - he timed giving free bus rides to his casino for older people the day they got their social security checks. i think that was the only thing he did in his pre-political life could qualified as a public service.
