I’m a day late in posting this video, but unfortunately this video is just as relevant today as it was yesterday. This is a great PSA produced by the same people who made the movie “The Cove.” The PSA was launched to raise awareness of the dolphin slaughter that takes place off the coast of Taiji, Japan every year starting September 1st. It features an impressive list of celebrities talking about specific amazing dolphin traits in order to highlight the cruelty of the killing.
You may be one of those people who sighs when celebrities get involved, but high profile people raise awareness better than anyone else, it’s just one of the realities of the world we live in. So check out the video and do what you can to help raise awareness. As a member of the facebook Cause, I received a message suggesting people take the following actions:
1. Call the Japanese Embassy in Washington D.C. and let them know you want an end to the dolphin hunts in Japan. The number is 202-238-6700.
2. Donate to the cause. This is a pivotal moment and it is crucial that we step it up and keep the pressure on. It’s clear that while we’re making progress the work isn’t done. Donations have made it possible to stage events in Japan and continued support is essential. Please donate by visiting Save Japan Dolphins.
