Help Ex-Dolphin Hunter now Dolphin Watcher Izumi Ishii

Izumi Ishii’s Beautiful Boat The Beautiful Kohkaimaru 

"For all of us who ever wished that dolphin slaughter could be replaced by dolphin watching, here’s a chance to put our money where our mouth is.

You have probably heard of Izumi Ishii, the ONLY dolphin-hunter-turned-dolphin-watch operator from Futo, Japan.

It has been a tough 10 years since he quit hunting dolphins, turning his boat into a dolphin-watch vessel instead.

Business has been slow, and it has just come to our notice that he is liable to lose his only means of livelihood, however meagre… his boat, the Kohkaimaru. If he cannot come up with another US$ 1600 by 09 February, he loses his boat.

We are appealing to everyone who is FOR dolphins to put in whatever possible to help reach this goal. If each of us puts in even $15, and shares this appeal on all the pages we possibly can, we can do this. $1600 is not a huge amount of money, and I know Izumi Ishii has earned a huge amount of goodwill among dolphin lovers globally.

Here is a man who symbolizes what we want for our beloved cetaceans… he took the pioneering step of quitting the slaughter and switching to running dolphin and whale-watch tours.

If we don’t support the change we want to see, who will?”

A Christmas Gift for The Dolphin Hunters of Taiji

Izumi Ishii
When you hunt dolphins, natural resource will decrease.
Hunting is an opponent of watching.
Watching will bring benefit not only to hunters but also their local
community. Dolphin hunting makes only temporary profit.
But dolphin watching gives us benefit permanently.
People who are hunting now will not be able to hunt anymore when they
become older.
Then, they will have to quit being hunters. Don’t they think it is sad thing?
They can do dolphin watching when they become older.
Quitting fisherman(hunter) is almost as sad as killing dolphins.
I do not understand why people want to eat dolphin meat.
Can’t they live without eating dolphin meat? Of course!
I disagree with dolphin show facilities.
Dolphins must be aspiring to swim in the big ocean.
Dolphins in facilities must be mentally despressed.
Can you enjoy watching dolphins which only long to go back to ocean?
Let’s not to watch mentally depressed dolphins.
I believe that dolphin watching is the symbol of anti-hunting.
Fishemen, do you know you will reincarnate to a dolphin in your next life?
This is a foreign proverb.
I warn dolphin hunters to stop dolphin slaughter, and hunting.
And I suggest to be a fisherman with generous heart.
These words are my Xmas present to dolphin hunters. By Izumi Ishii ex dolphin hunter now proud owner of
