This forum is important if done correctly. The bottom line is that the international community of environmental organizations have condemned the capture and trade of dolphins from the Solomon Islands. The bottom line is that the trade must end, there is no room for compromise.

Earth Island still stands on dolphin freedom in their natural habitat. As the economy worsens, the markets for live dolphins will dry up. The time is now for the Solomons to look at the future for alternatives to live dolphin captures which only provides big dollars for a very select few.
