Taiji Drive Fishery
Statement of clarification
WAZA does not support, and has never supported, the Taiji dolphin fishery in any way. To the contrary, WAZA has attempted to intervene directly, and has endeavoured to use its influence to bring to an end a practice which surely has no place in modern times. WAZA's efforts will continue, through direct engagement and influence, until the practice is halted. Secondly, WAZA does not represent ALL zoos and aquariums - it represents a group of progressive and passionate conservationists who are united in support of wild animals and wild places around the world.
