Although this is a huge victory for cetaceans, our work continues here in Taiji to document, expose, and put an end to the dolphin slaughter. I am now campaigning to get to follow Amazon’s lead and ban all sales of dolphin, whale, and shark meat from their site. Together we can make this happen.

Please join me in signing and sharing this petition.
