Opposing the Mass Slaughter of Small Cetaceans in Taiji With Our Volunteer ‘Cove Guardians’
In 2010, Sea Shepherd launched its annual Taiji Dolphin Defence Campaign. Each year since, Sea Shepherd has had an ongoing presence of volunteers from around the world who remain on the ground in Taiji throughout the entire six-month hunt season, documenting and live streaming daily so that no dolphin is taken from the waters of the cove unseen by the world.
These dedicated Sea Shepherd volunteers are our COVE GUARDIANS.
