Yahoo! Japan sells dolphin and whale meat from Taiji

Yahoo! Japan is the second most visited website in Japan in recent years. What might be less known is that this site sells dolphin and whale meat sourced from the Wakayama Prefecture where the horrific annual Taiji dolphin hunts occur.

Rakuten, Japan’s biggest online retailer, and Yahoo on a global scale, have stopped selling whale and dolphin meat,  but unfortunately Yahoo! Japan continues. 

Not only this, but whale and dolphin meat has been found to contain high levels of mercury, posing a risk to public health. 

Help hold Yahoo! Japan accountable.
