THE DOLPHINS NEED YOU!
Apply to volunteer as a Cove Guardian for Operation Henkaku,
Sea Shepherd’s 2016 Taiji Dolphin Defense Campaign!
Sea Shepherd is now accepting volunteer applications for Operation Henkaku! Sea Shepherd’s Cove Guardians are the only group on the ground in Taiji daily throughout the entire six-month hunt season, documenting and live streaming from the cove to ensure that no dolphin or small whale is captured or killed unseen by the world. Because we serve as the world's window to Taiji, it is crucial that we have volunteers scheduled throughout the hunt season.
If you are interested in applying to volunteer as a Cove Guardian during Operation Henkaku:
- Download our ground crew application
- You will submit that package by electronic mail.
- You will be notified if you are selected and provided more detailed information to help you in booking your travels to and stay in Japan.
Please note that the Taiji drive hunt season spans from September 1 until March. Volunteer applicants must be able to commit to participating in the campaign for a minimum of one week.
If you are able to join Sea Shepherd in Taiji, please apply today! The Cove Guardians – and the dolphins! – thank you!
