Totally unacceptable. Denmark & EU need to take action NOW to save protected dolphins from these utterly irresponsible Faroe Islanders.

Sign here to help us stop the hunt… @VSinkevicius @EU_ENV @denmarkdotdk @carrielbjohnson @ZacGoldsmith @whalesorg
There is nothing in recent grindadráp records that matches this. The closest we could find is 430 white-sided dolphins butchered on 13-08-2013 in Hvalba…

According to reports the foreman of the grindadrap did not authorise last night's hunt of a superpod of an estimated 1000 white-sided dolphins as there were too many animals and too few men to avoid unnecessary suffering.…
This is hard to write.

The reckless, idiotic, irresponsible Faroe Islanders wiped out a superpod of 1428 white-sided dolphins in the hunt last night.

If Denmark and the EU don't act after this then they're complicit in the unsustainable massacre of protected species. @Tinganes
Piled up like trash and soon to be dumped. It's unlikely they will be able to process 1428 dolphins. This is comparable to the American bison. 📷via Paul Watson. @VSinkevicius @EU_ENV @denmarkdotdk Image
Some people in the Faroe Islands are calling yesterday's reprehensible hunt of 1428 white-sided dolphins 'the biggest grindadráp in history'. If correct that is truly appalling as the records date back to 1584.

5 wildlife-killing balloons in every free @ComicRelief fundraising pack + option to buy more. Plastic pollution on a monumental scale and an embarrassing lack of environmental awareness from an organisation that should know better… #RedFaceDay #RedNoseDay
There must be dozens of celebrities that campaign for the environment and fund-raise for @comicrelief. Somebody please have a word about the balloons. @LennyHenry @ferrifrump @JuliaBradbury @ChrisGPackham @BillOddie @Dawn_French #balloonsblow
So @ComicRelief are knowingly putting animals at risk with balloons. That is disgraceful.… #RedNoseDay

Let's hit Japan hard and make them rethink their decision to leave the IWC and resume whaling. Join us in protesting the @RugbyWC_2019 and @Tokyo2020. 💥🐋 @iwc_int @rugbyworldcup @Olympics
We urge Japan to cease whaling and rejoin the IWC. Until they do, we will be officially protesting the @rugbyworldcupjp which starts on 20th Sept 2019. @Tokyo2020 will follow. Expect disruptions. Pic: @ArchieTaplin #whales #Japanwhaling
