Does Military Sonar Kill Marine Wildlife?: Scientific American

Unfortunately for many whales, dolphins and other marine life, the use of underwater sonar (short for sound navigation and ranging) can lead to injury and even death. Sonar systems—first developed by the U.S. Navy to detect enemy submarines—generate slow-rolling sound waves topping out at around 235 decibels;

Captive Bottlenose Dolphin <<Facebook

This captive Bottlenose dolphin was placed in a large transport truck and driven North of Taiji. We followed with two vehicles. Wakayama Prefecture police had two vehicles purposely driving slow in front of us, so we would lose sight of truck. At one point blocking us as not to pass vehicle. At this time, the destination of this dolphin is unknown. Typical corrupt behavior of the Japanese police..protecting the greedy captive industry that funds the Taiji slaughter.

Animals Petition: Tell Amazon.com To Permanently Ban The Sale Of Whale, Dolphin, and Porpoise Meat ››Change.org

In just a few weeks in Taiji, Japan, I have witnessed unimaginable cruelty and bloodshed. The film The Cove is horrifying, and even though I’ve been here before, I can never fully prepare for what I am witnessing: the slaughter and mutilation of hundreds of dolphins.

On February 22, Amazon.com responded to consumer pressure and removed dolphin, porpoise, and whale meat from their online store after the Environmental Investigation Agency and Humane Society International exposed them for selling whale bacon, whale jerky, canned whale meat, and more than 100 other products. But they have yet to adopt a clear policy that Amazon.com will never sell these items.

Quietly pulling those products from their site is not enough. It’s time for Amazon.com to put a permanent ban on whale, dolphin, and porpoise meat in place.

I know that not everyone can come to Japan to join me to speak out for dolphins and whales, but together we can convince Amazon to permanently stop selling all whale, dolphin, and porpoise products. If Amazon–the largest online retailer in the world–were to adopt a policy like this, it would send a clear message to the world.

Thank you for your support. Many people in Japan are against this massacre, too, and we all appreciate your help in signing and sharing this petition.
