The aim of Australia for Dolphins is to mobilise Australians to help protect dolphins and small whales who are killed inhumanely, and who presently have no international legal protection. Dolphins are legally protected in Australian waters, but in Japan, Peru, the Solomon Islands and the Faroe Islands, dolphins and other small whales (such as porpoises and pilot whales) are hunted and killed inhumanely to supply aquariums and for their meat. Over a million have been killed in hunts in the past 70 years in Japan alone. Australia for Dolphins is committed to taking action against dolphin cruelty, with a focus on legal action that can bring about real change to the thousands of dolphins currently being mistreated around the world. Your support will help fund our vital work to gain stronger legal protection for these wonderful and intelligent animals.
