AFD’s ground-breaking legal action against the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums stopped 62 aquariums buying dolphins captured in Taiji – a momentous blow to the hunts. When we can raise the funding, AFD plans to launch a bold new legal action in Japan – one with the power to stop these bloody hunts for good.
Dolphins belong in the ocean. But sadly, many are still trapped in concrete pools around the world. AFD’s Dolphin Defenders are leading the movement to end this out-dated practice in Australia. We’ve taken over buses, TV airwaves, and billboards, and convinced political parties to announce a new bill with the power to abolish dolphin captivity.
It’s hard to imagine the terror of dolphins captured in Taiji, Japan. Even the babies are ripped from their mothers’ sides, and attacked with metal rods. AFD has already won a world-first legal victory against the Taiji dolphin brokers, and we’re fighting hard to stop these hunts for good.
Poor Lulu was on display in a tiny chicken wire cage at a café in the Solomon Islands. Her nose was covered in scratches, and her back was scarred by sunburn. With the help of our Dolphin Defenders, AFD was able to swing into action. An AFD lawyer put pressure on top ministers and decision-makers, and convinced the authorities to release Lulu back into her ocean home.
