- Denmark Faroe Islands-slauter of Calderon dolphins
I just really hate the behaviour of slaughter Calderon dolphins. Wish my small power could have effect to stop this big stupid event!
Pilot whales (Calderon dolphins) are two species of cetacean in the genus Globicephala. The genus is part of the oceanic dolphin family (Delphinidae). The two species are the long-finned pilot whale and the short-finned pilot whale. The two are not readily distinguished at sea. They and other large members of the dolphin family are also known as blackfish.
The short-finned pilot whale has also been hunted for many centuries, particularly by Japanese whalers. In the mid-1980s the annual Japanese kill was about 2,300 animals. This had decreased to about 400 per year by the 1990s. Killing by harpoon is still relatively common in the Lesser Antilles and Sri Lanka. Due to poor record-keeping it is not known how many kills are made each year, and what effect this has on the local population.
Both species are also collaterally caught and killed in longline and gill-nets each year.
Stop slaughter of Calderon dolphins due to a stupid celebration.
