In preparation for the Japan Dolphins Day, which takes place on Saturday, August 31, we have the organizer from Vancouver’s event, Mel Tran, speak with us about the horrific slaughter and capture of over 20, 000 dolphins that takes place each year from September to May in Taiji. Along with this massive slaughter, a select few “most attractive” dolphins are also selected during this hunt to be kept alive for marine parks and aquariums all over the world, such as the Vancouver Aquarium.
Also, we accept call-ins from listeners to ask their vegan / animal related questions, concerns, and comments. Feel free to call in to contribute to our current conversation, or bring up something else that strikes you. Call us at the studio line at 604-684-7561 between 12-1pm on August 30th.
