Hey guys! Since I’ve taken up running, I figured why not run for a cause I’m passionate about, so... I’m going to run a virtual 5k in hopes to help raise money for the dolphins of Taiji.
For those of you who don’t know, each year from approximately September 1 to March 1, a large-scale hunt of dolphins takes place in Taiji, Japan. During this period, hunters utilize drive hunt techniques to herd large numbers of dolphins to shore, resulting in their capture or death.
Dolphin Project is the only organization to have been on the ground in Taiji since 2003. Utilizing live streaming services, Dolohin Project members in Japan document and broadcast the results throughout the course of the entire season in hopes of bringing this cruel practice to an end.
