Here we are again, saying good- bye to 2014, a year filled with great accomplishments. Our great team of administrators has once again grown and in 2015 we are hoping for another great year with our new team for 2015. This year we are very proud to say that we have a new administrator, a Japanese activist; Takayo Yamaguchi.
Takayo Yamaguchi brings us great energy and willingness to help to bring the change needed in Japan. We look forward to a great year with our new team in place.
Let’s start to rewind and highlight some of our accomplishments:
This year we opted for a global Tweet storm on Twitter & Facebook event of our yearly “Positive Change for Taiji” on Friday, January 10th at 8pm.
In February 6, 2014, we joined forces with Miami Against Dolphin Slaughter in a protest in front of the Consulate of Japan.
Lighting up the World
WAZA became the favorite word of the month. JAZA became the word of the month. Two words very symbiotically that live synonymous of each other. This event finally was coming to fruition at the end of this month. Our wonderful administrator Mila DeMier corresponded from Gland.
Finally, on March 28, 2013 our great event in Gland, Switzerland occurred. Read all about it here:
Contrary to believe, Facebook did some major event changes and two weeks after the event, the event module disappeared, thankfully there were blogs written and many images of this great event. Great moments in activism history are still engraved in the bowels of Google.

Then May came around and we embarked on another great Tweet-storm:
Dolphin Talk Radio was founded July 7, 2014. Check our page for up coming shows on Wednesdays, Starting January 2015.
Yet another wonderful storm. Our petition to the Mirage continues to gather signatures. Keep signing if you have not: https://www.change.org/p/no-more-dolphins-swimming-in-las-vegas We will continue to reopen this petition and keep the pressure up. We want shading for the dolphins! End of story!
August 29th JDD2014 in Miami, and awesome event.
On December 14th Miami Against Dolphin Slaughter and Save the Blood Dolphins wanted to put some rumors at rest. Lolita’s Concrete Prison was getting a face lift. The floor of the first front row of seating are subjected to salt & chlorinated water when Lolita is made to spray the audience with her flukes.
And there you have more or less what our year has been like. We look forward to a better year of bringing awareness. We set the bar higher each year.
Thank you for your continued support through the last 5 years. We will continue to fight for cetacean freedom! The best is yet to come!
