Stop the tradition of dolphin hunting!
On September 14th in Denmark, 1500 dolphins were slaughtered for a traditional hunt. Children were allowed to be present with blood in the water and waste everywhere. Sign PetitionSign Petition
The deaths came as part of the latest ‘grindadráp’ hunt — a Faroese tradition of dolphin drive hunting in which dolphins are herded towards land by motorboats, before then being killed by whalers on the shore.
Marine conservationists Sea Shepherd are calling the event the largest single hunt of dolphins or pilot whales in Faroese history. The next largest was in 1940 when 1200 pilot whales were killed.
“It is possibly the largest single hunt of cetaceans ever recorded worldwide,” the organisation added in a statement released today, after sharing footage of the killing which took place 40 kilometres into Danish water.
Dolphins numbers are dropping due to climate change and warmer waters. This so called tradition is not sustainable for the welfare of dolphins. I call in the Faroe killing to be stopped!
