Stop and penalize dolphin hunting off the coast of Peru

To the Minister of Environment Manuel Gerardo Pedro Pulgar-Vidal Otálora, the Minister of Production Gladys Mónica Triveño Chan Jan, and President Ollanta Humala:

Through this petition we demand you enforce the law with regards to the hunting and sale of dolphins for food and bait in Peru. We have all witnessed through various publications and images the terrible crime that happens on our shores. According to information published, 15,000 dolphins a year in are being killed in Peru. Don’t destroy our ocean. There is no going back. We ask you to STOP THESE ACTS and make those responsible pay. We do not ask for miracles.

Stop and penalize dolphin hunting off the coast of Peru

In Peru dolphin hunting is punished with 3 years in prison, but everyone is turning a blind eye and wiping out an important species in our seas, without taking into account the impact of this in the (not so distant) future.

Let's raise our voices for the 15,000 dolphins that are killed in Peruvian waters every year.

Don't stay in shock from the pictures you may have seen recently, but be responsible to our ocean and its wildlife. Let's make sure Peru stops this massacre and requires that laws are enforced.

Sign the petition and spread the word.
