We need research on what causes dolphin strandings onto beachs- pollution, viruses, superloud sonar from oil exploration, or superloud navy sonar . Local Volunteer Lauren Rust started a group to raise funds to continue the research.
These airgun soundbursts can be heard 2,500 miles away and go off every 10 seconds for months. They are planned on the Atlantic coast from Delaware down to Florida.

Ask your senators and representatives to stop the international trade bullies at the WTO and NAFTA from imposing big fines to get the US to drop its "dolphin safe" labels for tuna.

Activists are bearing witness and publicizing the dolphin capture and killing. Over the last 6 weeks, 68 bottlenose dolphins and 1 pilot whale were violently captured and 35 Risso's dolphins and 16 pilot whales were slaughtered. Dolphin Project is the Facebook address for updates. Many dolphins were being captured in the Japanese cove for aquariums or to slaughter. Here is the Twitter feed for up to date reports. The money from selling the dolphins to aquariums provides the money to pay for the violent capture and slaughter of the rest of the dolphins.
