CSI's Anti-Captivity Flyer

Posted on 12 November 2015

CSI's 1997 anti-captivity flyer is still relevant today, even with outdated statistics. Its message is even more powerful than today's headlines in major media, as reflected by Wall Street, SeaWorld's increasing panic, and the public's realization that their tickets support the exploitation of the captives. Read it here:

Taiji Dolphin Slaughters Continue

Posted on 13 October to 4 November 2015

The dolphin and whale slaughters at Taiji, Japan are underway. CSI is represented at the infamous killing Cove by Marna Olsen and Hans Peter Roth, two expert international activists joining Ric O'Barry's Cove Monitors. Marna's blogs to CSI from Taiji for the weeks that she was there are posted here.

We are all searching for ways to end the slaughter. Because some dolphins are selected for captive display, and their sales provide the profit that is the major motivation for Taiji's dolphin drives, CSI specifically fights the trade of captive dolphins. We welcome your ideas and help to end the Cove's horrors.
