The Cove

The CoveDolphins are still being slaughtered in Taiji, Japan but they are feeling the pressure and we are the ones applying it. I am a cyber activist and I am a part of a network of thousands of others who are making a difference via our calls, faxes and emails. Join with me today and add to our numbers. Below, you will find the tools you need to join us in our crusade. The Japanese Prime Minister, Japanese consulates and embassies throughout the world are receiving thousands of emails, faxes and phone calls every day. The fishermen devils of Taiji have received the brunt of our blows by having to take special measures to do their sinister jobs. We are at the dawn of a new age of change and hope for Mother Earth and dolphinkind, but we need your help.  With eleven of you, I make a dozen. With ninety-nine of you, I make a hundred. But I cannot do it without each and every one of you. You matter! Never give up! For the Dolphins!

Here are the tools you will need to email, fax and call the appropriate parties.
