Sadly, more pilot whales were herded into the Cove today, according to our volunteer Cove Monitor Sakura.
Our Japanese Cove Monitor Sakura tells us about the rounding up of bottlenose dolphins in Taijji, apparently just for captivity.
Last week, when Ric was in the Philippines, he conducted an investigation of a so-called dolphin rehabilitation center.
Our first Japanese Cove Monitor, Sakura, reports on a devastating kill of pilot whales in the Cove.
Our volunteer videographer, Melissa Thompson Esaia, prepared this video of highlights of our events on the beach of the Cove on Sept. 1st, complete with insults flung at us from Japanese extreme nationalists.
The dolphin hunters of Taiji have changed their game this year, making it hard for our volunteer Cove Monitors to keep up with them. Becca Jurczak reports on the capture of bottlenose dolphins.
Ric O'Barry is in Tokyo for a special mission, but in Taiji, the first successful hunt of the season brings pilot whales to the Cove. Three are kept for captivity; the rest are slaughtered.
