Stop The Dall’s Disaster

For the past quarter of a century, Japan’s Dall’s porpoise hunt has been the largest cetacean hunt in the world, with as many as 17,700 animals slaughtered each year.

The self-set catch quotas are based on abundance estimates more than 15-years-old while the hunt itself has consistently exceeded the recommended safe level of mortality and is clearly unsustainable.

Japan is trying to hide the hunt from the public eye by stopping the International Whaling Commission from discussing the management of all small cetaceans.
