Do Over

On #ValentinesDay (Friday), demonstrations are being held at Japanese embassies / consulates around the world against #Taiji’s dolphin slaughter.

If you can’t go, gather your kiddies, print the FREE Valentine’s cards provided via Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and send ‘em to the embassies. Teach activism, not apathy!

As the world awakens to the massive annual slaughter of whales and dolphins in Taiji — millions of animals needlessly suffer & are killed for our food, entertainment, clothing & personal testing (vivisecting) demands EVERY DAY. If you care about, are concerned for and consider one species, care about them (us) all. Keep widening your circle of compassion to include everyone - we are all animals.


Join Sea Shepherd Conservation Society & Sea Shepherd Cove Guardians at the Japanese Embassy and Consulates on Valentine’s Day to honor the dolphins who are brutalized in Taiji’s Cove:

Valentine’s Day Demonstrations Feb 14th, 2014, 12:00pm - 1:00pm ET/PT

Sea Shepherd USA will be leading demonstrations at the Embassy of Japan in Washington, D.C. and Japanese consulates in cities across the country to stand with the Cove Guardians in demanding an end to the bloodshed in Taiji. Sea Shepherd invites all to join us for the peaceful Valentine’s Day demonstrations and raise their voices for the dolphins. On a day meant to celebrate love, we will show Japan the love felt by the people of the world for dolphins. You might not be able to go to Japan, as Sea Shepherd Cove Guardians do, but you can join us at Japan’s doorstep.

There are 2 ways to help:

  1. Demonstrate at Japanese Embassy & Consulates Sea Shepherd will be demonstrating outside Japanese Consulates and the Japanese Embassies. Join Sea Shepherd and Sea Shepherd Cove Guardians to remind the Japanese government that the Taiji drive hunts dishonor Japan. Japan can only begin to restore their honor by ending the horror in the Taiji Cove. Download & print a poster, and join us.
