Taiji Dolphin Hunt and SeaWorld
Every year on September people in Taiji Japan and surrounding area gather and drive the pods/families of migrating Dolphins (since Dolphins and Whales use sonar like system to find their directions and fishermen on boats use long metal pipes to disorient the pods by metal sounds) to nearby cove and then mercilessly kill the adults and kidnap the calves and young to sell to sea aquariums and water parks like SeaWorld and many around the globe.
People of Japan claim this annual hunt and kill as their Tradition but to the fact this killing started around 1950’s and it’s main object is to end the competition for fish industry and fishing. This is not tradition.
To fight this so called tradition Ric O’Barry started Dolphin Project
