In Tanzania, Africa, dynamite fisherman have been blowing up dolphins and using them as bait in the profitable shark-fin trade in the Tanga Coelacanth Marine Park. The dolphins are protected in the marine park and also protected under the country’s fisheries regulations.

The Tanga region marine park is located on the northern coastline of Tanzania. It has an important regional coral reef ecosystem, and is also important habitat for other endangered species such as the dugong, sea turtles and migratory birds.

Tell Tanzania to stop the destructive dynamite fishing. Besides exposing tourists to this barbaric and cruel fishing method, it is very destructive to the entire ecosystem. Furthermore, hunting sharks for their fins should be banned as many shark species are approaching extinction. Stop this gruesome and destructive practice.

Petition to End the Dolphin Killings in Japan sponsored by the Cove
http://www.takepart.com/cove/takeaction

I recently heard about the documentary film The Cove and was alarmed to find out that more than 20,000 dolphins and porpoises are brutally killed each year off the coast of Japan. In addition, Japanese consumers are being sold dolphin meat, containing dangerously high levels of mercury, often labeled as whale meat.

I ask that you urge the Japanese government to revoke permits that allow Japan's Fisheries Agency to continue this heinous, dangerous and illegal practice.

I also urge American leadership to ensure that the International Whaling Commission includes the proper management of dolphins and porpoises and a comprehensive plan to stop the slaughter of dolphins in Japan.

Your immediate action is needed.
