In Russia there's a proposed quota to capture 13 orcas and 200 belugas in 2019!
On top of these animals being doomed to a life in captivity, the actual captures are brutal. Without much expierence, fishermen end up killing many animals in the process. Also, without enough information on population numbers in the area, it's worrying that removing so many could be very harmful towards the remaining population's overall survival.
Our friend SaveDolphins.net is asking people to speak out worldwide before the quotas are discussed on May 3rd (only days away).
E-mail the authorities and ask them to deny the quotas and captures:
