Thank you to all of you around the world who stood up to counted and had their voice heard for the small cetacean that migrate past and live in Japanese waters. Here are some photos from the Brisbane event.
Over 500 flyers to passersby and collected signatures on a petition aimed at our Australian government to put pressure on the Japanese government and the IWC with regards to small cetaceans. No one was safe from being asked to sign from people on bikes and pedestrians to people in cars and taxis.
I am sure the protest was heard by the Japanese consulate above in their offices with so many cars offering an answer to our “Honk if you love dolphins” signs and I’m sure a few consulate workers jumped just a little as one of Brisbane’s Fire Fighters drove past in their fire engine and really let their horn bellow for a few seconds.
It was a good day spent with like minded people, peacefully protesting for our oceans and the marine life that lives in them.
Please remember one of the easiest things we can all do to help stop this abuse is… not to purchase a ticket to any facility that holds captive marine mammals whether they are for display, shows or “swim with” programs and to encourage everyone we know not to do the same.
