Stop the Toxic Sale of mercury-laden dolphin meat.

A lot of people don’t know this meat is riddled with dangerous levels of mercury. It could pose a serious risk to human health, but sales are taking place under the radar of public officials.

Can you help stop these horrific hunts that torture and kill hundreds of beautiful dolphins every year?

Please sign the petition calling on Mr. Norihisa Tamura, Minister for Health in Japan, to stop ignoring the evidence and ban the sale of this toxic product.

Experts argue the killing method used in Taiji ‘would register at the highest level of gross trauma, pain, and distress’.

Your signature will not only help keep people safe. It could pressure officials to end this horrific slaughter – saving countless dolphins from suffering and death.

Minister Norihisa Tamura

Numerous tests have shown dolphin meat for sale across the country contains levels of mercury that are much higher than the amount your government recommends as safe for human consumption, as laid out in the Food Sanitation Act. However this product continues to be sold with very little regulation or testing – putting people’s health at serious risk.

Japan has national limits regarding the amount of mercury allowed in food for a good reason; it is a dangerous substance.

Using your authority to halt the sale of mercury-laden meat would demonstrate great leadership and genuine care for the people who elected you to protect them. Please do not let them down. Take responsibility for people’s health by getting this toxic product off the shelf.
