For many, the dolphin slaughter in Japan's Taiji's Cove is hearbreaking. So Valentines day seems like the perfect day for World Love for Dolphins Day. Valentines Day was designated on Feb. 3, 2014, by Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and Sea Shepherd Cove Guardians as a day to honor the dolphins.
The Valentines express both love and outrage to the Japanese government in cities around the world. The killed dolphins have too much mercury to eat, but make their way into food and even children's lunches illegally. The young dolphins who survive capture and transit are sold to aquariums around the world.
