Dolphins are chased to shore, corralled in a cove, and then selected for marine parks and aquariums, or killed for their meat. In September of each year, the dolphin drive hunting season begins in Taiji, Japan. Over 2,000 small whales and dolphins may be captured or killed annually. A variety of dolphin species are taken in a brutal process that can last for days.
Hundreds of dolphins procured from the Taiji hunts are shipped to aquariums around the globe, primarily within Asia and the Middle East. China is the number one purchaser of wild-caught dolphins from Japan, but every captive facility ultimately feeds this deadly supply and demand chain.
