Solomon Island Villagers Kill 1,000 Dolphins

Reports from Solomon Islands say another 300 dolphins have been killed on Malaita, Solomon Islands. This terrible news comes only days after it emerged that villagers from Fanalei in South Malaita had already killed about 700 wild dolphins in a dispute of money.

The shocking capture and killing of these dolphins follows the refusal by villagers to renew an agreement they had previously made not to carry out any hunts for two years in exchange for money.

That agreement, made with the Earth Island Institute, ended in April 2012 and a spokesperson for the villagers said that the hunts had resumed because they were promised $2.4 million not to hunt the dolphins, but only received $700,000.

Earth Island Institute has responded by stating that the funding has stopped because the villagers have disobeyed and continued to hunt dolphins despite the agreement being in place.
