Urge World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) to expel Japanese Association of Zoos and Aquariums (JAZA) from WAZA’s umbrella of endorsement.

Urge WAZA to expel all other zoos and aquariums that purchase Dolphins from the annual Dolphin drive hunts in Japan.

This video was shot just a few days ago. It aired in all German speaking countries yesterday.

As you can see, the violent dolphin captures are still taking place in Japan in order to meet supply and demand of zoos and aquariums. At the very same time, the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) gathers at their 63rd Annual Conference to talk about "conservation and education."

Take a minute to send a strong message to this hypocritical industry while their conference is still in session.

Email complaint to Dr. Chris West, chairman of WAZA's ethics committee. Dr. West is also the director of The Adelaide Zoo, host of the 63rd Annual WAZA conference.
