Description: About half of the dolphins caught in Taiji were exported to China and other countries despite global criticism of the hunting technique to catch them. Live Dolphins fetch about $10,000 each to be caged in marine zoos. The rest are consumed as food. The method of catching the dolphins has been heavily criticized globally as inhumane and cruel by the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) recently forced Japan\'s zoos and aquariums to stop using dolphins caught by the method. Japan\'s zoos and aquariums voted to stop using dolphins caught at Taiji. Moreover, campaigners claim there is insufficient demand in Japan for the meat from dolphins butchered at Taiji and that the high prices of live animals sold to aquariums and dolphin shows is the only thing that sustains the hunt. Dolphins have been shown to be intelligent animals - they deserve so much better than what they are suffering in Taiji. Will you join US in urging the Japanese Government to not only ban the export of live dolphins but to end the inhumane Taiji hunt?
