World Love for Dolphins Day

World Love for Dolphins Day

World Love for Dolphin’s Day

Join Sea Shepherd Conservation Society & Sea Shepherd Cove Guardians at the Japanese Embassy and Consulates on February 13th to honor the dolphins who are brutalized in Taiji’s Cove.

World Love For Dolphins Day Demonstrations Feb 13th, 2015, 12:00pm - 1:00pm ET/PT

Sea Shepherd Conservation Society will be leading demonstrations at the Embassy of Japan in Washington, D.C. and Japanese consulates in cities across the country to stand with the Cove Guardians in demanding an end to the bloodshed in Taiji. Sea Shepherd invites all to join us for the peaceful demonstrations and raise their voices for the dolphins. On a day meant to celebrate love, we will show Japan the love felt by the people of the world for dolphins. You might not be able to go to Japan, as Sea Shepherd Cove Guardians do, but you can join us at Japan's doorstep.

There are 3 ways to help:

1. Demonstrate at Japanese Embassy & Consulates

Sea Shepherd will be demonstrating outside Japanese Consulates and the Japanese Embassies. Join Sea Shepherd and Sea Shepherd Cove Guardians to remind the Japanese government that the Taiji drive hunts dishonor Japan. Japan can only begin to restore their honor by ending the horror in the Taiji Cove. Download & print a poster, and join us.
