I am eternally enthralled with and interested in Japan, but I am completely disgusted at the treatment of Sea Life from so many people living there. At this moment, thousands of Dolphins are being murdered or taken into captivity in the annual hunt in Taiji. This, combined with the fad of “live” sushi, Sharkfinning, and general overfishing (the whole world is guilty of this) and destruction thanks to nuclear seepage makes me sick to my stomach.
I really urge you to donate to help stop this, or at least share this information. There is no reason to mass-murder animals that have been proven to be smarter than the average human simply because we can. This isn’t just a blemish on the Japanese, it’s a stain on the human race, as is our treatment of animals overall.
