Email campaign to Sendai Aquarium, Japan – Say NO to captive dolphins!
Öffentlich · Von Fins and Fluke
  • A new aquarium facility is currently being constructed in Sendai, Japan. We are urging dolphin lovers to please send an email to the Mayor, Ms. Emiko Okuyama, and ask her to say NO to captive dolphins. We feel it’s important to be polite and very careful in our wording so we have provided a sample email! Dolphins belong in the wild and not in concrete tanks. Please share and invite your friends, the more emails the better. Sample tweet: I joined the email campaign to Sendai Aquarium, Japan! Say NO to capti…ve dolphins Email address: Subject: Sendai Aquairum Body: Mayor of Sendai City Ms. Emiko Okuyama ————- I recently found out that a private enterprise will be building a new aquarium in your city. I do understand that this going to help gain a positive economic effect since the devastation of the Tsunami in 2011; however, keeping dolphins captive has been seriously criticized globally and Japan has been especially condemned for its treatment of dolphins (as seen in the movie “The Cove”). Please urge the enterprise to forgo keeping whales and dolphins captive at your future facility. Many thanks, Sincerely, *Your name*

    I translated the mail into Japanese. Please feel free to use it. Thank you. Subject:仙台水族館の設置にあたって… body: 仙台市長 奥山恵美子様 このたび、仙台市で新しい水族館の建設計画について知り、お願いのためにメールをいたしました。 東日本大震災で被災された皆々さまの心情は察するに余りあるものであり、一日も早い復興を心よりお祈り申し上げております。 またこの度の水族館の建設が、仙台市の復興に大きな意味を持つことは重々承知しております。 しかしながら水族館でのイルカの飼育・展示は現在世界中で大変深刻な問題と考えられています。 映画“THE COVE(ザ・コーブ)”でも取り上げられたように水族館でのイルカの需要がイルカ猟・イルカ食を支えています。 仙台水族館が今後将来において長く市民から愛される場所であるためにも、どうかイルカの飼育展示を行わないことを、心よりお願い申し上げます。 今後も仙台市のさらなるご発展を心よりお祈り申し上げます。
