@SylviaEarle Alliance #MissionBlue ~ #HammerheadSharks #CocosIsland #hopeSpots | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
Cocos Island, often referred to as the Little Galapagos, is one of the most pristine ocean ecosystems on Earth and home to the largest global schools of hammerhead sharks, who arrive via migratory corridors in dense swarms that have become legendary among divers. It is also a Mission Blue Hope Spot. While Cocos is protected as a marine reserve under Costa Rican law, there is still a huge problem of enforcement: poachers are slaughtering the hammerheads, including the endangered Scalloped Hammerhead. Even worse some of their large dorsal fins are being exported to Asian Markets, where they are prized as a delicacy. Among its many projects, the Mission Blue is currently supporting PRETOMA in Costa Rica, a respected organization that is aggressively monitoring enforcement of local marine laws and has sued the government to stop the illegal plunder of hammerhead shark fins at the Cocos Island Hope Spot. With every dollar you donate right now, the The Philip Stephenson Foundation will donate another dollar to Mission Blue. Additionally, 20% of funds donated will go to support PRETOMAs on-the-ground work to protect hammerheads in the Cocos Island Hope Spot.

#Filmmaker plans more balanced documentary on #Taiji's #dolphin hunt v @blog4cetaceans #tweet4taiji | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
TAIJI, Wakayama Prefecture--A Japanese filmmaker is taking issue with the view that Taiji is evil, a perception that has “unilaterally” spread around the world since the award-winning documentary “The Cove” spotlighted the town’s dolphin hunt.
Marian Locksley's insight:

Courtesy of @blog4cetaceans  ::: 

Sadly there is no balanced view on the Taiji ‪#‎dolphin‬ capture and hunt. The award winning documentary maker condemns WAZA's actions against dolphin drive fisheries. The article reads she has been studying the hunt since the year 2010! Hasn't she seen enough dolphin suffering to see there is nothing good about Taiji's actions, and attitude about dolphins. Only the law can stop the blood shed in ‪#‎TheCove‬. ‪#‎Tweet4Dolphins‬ ‪#‎Tweet4Taiji

Matching grant enables you to double your donation! End Slaughter of Dolphins for Shark bait! Each year 15,000 dolphins are brutally killed for use as shark bait. This crime can be stopped with your help. (Warning: graphic images) BlueVoice, in partnership with Mundo Azul, has documented the brutal slaughter of up to 15,000 dolphins by Peruvian shark fishermen. Dolphins are harpooned when they come to ride the bow of the fishing boats then clubbed to death. The dolphin is cut into pieces for use as shark bait. The fins of the sharks taken are sold to Asia to make soup.We have footage of this horrific process. Because it is illegal to kill dolphins in Peru we believe we can end this dolphin mass murder by exposing it on international television and at conferences such as the International Whaling Commission. We will also show the film theatrically in Peru. We now need funds to do additional shooting and to finish the film.The film will be highly dramatic and follows Mundo Azul president Stefan Austermuhle, as he goes to sea under highly dangerous conditions to obtain the evidence of dolphin slaughter and massive overfishing of sharks.
See the video for a full explanation of this project and the damning footage of the dolphin hunt WARNING, HIGHLY DISTURBING!
