Every year, this heartbreaking cycle repeats itself in Taiji: wild bottlenose dolphins, living freely in the vast ocean, are mercilessly captured for the tourism trade.
The capture process is harrowing. Hunters overpower a single dolphin, ruthlessly pulling on their fins, dragging them underwater, and exhausting them to the point of despair. Helplessly trapped in nets and hoisted into slings, these innocent creatures are sent across the globe to spend their days in tanks, performing tricks for human entertainment.
We refuse to let this cruelty continue unchallenged.
