#blog – eco trips worldwide, protection of maritime wildlife and animal conservation

The same procedure as every day in Taiji

Days as a Cove Guardian are usually very long days! You get up very early in the morning, as the hunting boats leave the harbour very early.
So you get up around 04:00, drive to Taiji and take your position at Taiji harbour. You see the killers walk by very very close, you all can imagine how you feel looking into their eyes and see them walking „to work“ as it is the most common thing in the world. Then they enter their boats by 2 killers and leave the harbour in order to find a pod they can chase into the killing cove, kill them and taking captives.
We all never understood why they all wear white rubber boots. They try not to look into our direction, but some of them do.

Every single day, you stay there, being chased by the police behind you and eyeball to eyeball with the killers … all you can do is showing the world how wrong this is and how Japan positions itself as a cruel nation not caring about wildlife, sustainability and animals.
