Like the title says, Asia is beginning to get on my nerves. Japan kills the dolphins in Taiji and is a whaling country. China is the cause for all of the sharks and large rays that are killed each year. Lastly, Korea as well as China beats dogs to death (in public) to release blood into the meat in belief that if an animal suffers horrible pain before death that the meat will be tastier and of higher quality.
These things make me very mad and sad, but I know that not all people in these countries are like that and most are good people. But the ones who do do these things are bad people, although they may not know it.

I have started two petitions. Here are the addresses for them if you would like to sign them:

Haley's voice for marine mammals is really getting loud. I'm very proud of young people who are passionate about preserving the precious ecosystems in our world. The delicate balance of our oceanic ecosystem is in obvious jeopardy. I encourage Haley and blog fans to read and learn about other seemingly less significant organisms (less than cetaceans and sharks) whose preservation is critical to maintaining the balances necessary for the long term survival of the sea as we know it.
That being said, we must all remember that nature is cruel and the only thing inevitable in evolutionary processes is change! Most things will change no matter what we do; nonetheless, we must do what we can to curb self-destructive human behaviors!

2012 is here now, the year that I and many others have been waiting for. The Taiji slaughter has decreased from 23,000 a year to 850 having been killed between 2010-2011 due to public pressure on Japan. That is a huge acheivment for activists, and makes me very happy. 2012 is said to be the year that this brutal slaughter ends for good and dolphins can swim freely. The killing cove is actully quite pleasent looking when it isn't blood stained, and let's all hope that it stays that way!
