The captive display industry continues to demand dolphins captured from the wild for public display in marine parks. These animals and the majority of their pod members pay with their lives for the sake of human entertainment.
If airlines refused to transport these animals, the industry would collapse.
In order to capture wild dolphins for captive display, fishermen drive large groups of dolphins close to shore. They select a few animals for transport and brutally kill the rest. The slaughter methods cause the dolphins to suffer long, slow deaths which would never be allowed for animals killed for human consumption.
Many airlines have pledged not to support the dolphin hunts by refusing to transport the animals. By continuing to transport live wild-caught dolphins, Japan Airlines and Air China are enabling the horrific hunts.
It's time to turn the tide on this brutal industry. Please take action today.
