Great News for dolphins in the Soloman Islands
For the last 450 years, dolphins have been killed in the Soloman Islands. But, none have been killed in the past year, for villagers have agreed to stop the slaughter! Estimated, 2,000 dolphins were killed annually, but this year, they are safe and unharmed. The meat was always eaten and the teeth were used as a form of money. But dolphins are still being captured for dolphinariums, but activists are seeking an end to that as well.
