A Hopi Prayer For the Dolphin Jiyu

Photo Provided by Heather Hill

A Hopi Prayer for Jiyu the bottlenose dolphin who suffered mentally and physically at Dolphin Base in Taiji Japan. Captured in a dolphin drive in “The Cove” Jiyu never gave in to his captors. He refused their food, and he cried to be released every second of every day until he was took his last breath. He has gone onto a better place and for that we should be grateful. RIP our ocean friend.


Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die.

Jiyu The Sick Dolphin Needs Our Help!

Giyu The sick dolphin

On September 26,2011  Cove Guardian Rosie Kunneke checked the sea pens only to find what appeared to be a very sick and unhappy dolphin:

I witnessed the trainers tubefeed a dolphin who was perhaps too ill or dispirited to perform degrading tricks for his meals. I went back daily to check on this specific dolphin and over the next two days, I started to notice repetive neurotic behavior displayed by this sick and obviously unhappy dolphin that struck me as unusual. This dolphin was spyhopping non-stop throughout the entire day, probably induced by feelings of intense claustrophobia in the small pen. This repetitive behavior caused open sores on his tail from repeatedly slamming against the bottom net.

Almost a week later Rosie Kunneke reports : The sick dolphin remains in the seapens at Dolphin Base.  He (or she) has been nicknamed “Jiyu” which means FREEDOM in Japanese by Sea Shepherd Conservation Society Cove Guardian Rosie Kunneke.  PLEASE HELP SAVE JIYU!

After making numerous requests to the Dolphin Resort staff to help the sickly dolphin, the trainers are denying the dolphin is suffering to the police. We are calling on passionate people to contact Dolphin Resort to request bigger and better living conditions, qualified veterinary treatment, and even release with rehabilitation assistance for this dolphin before its too late. Dolphin Resort needs to see that people are concerned for the well being of each and every captive dolphin in their pens.Email: info@dolphinbase.co.jp or info@dolphinresort.jp

Leilani Munter reported 22 to 25 bottle nose dolphins has been driven into “The Cove”. One dolphin was selected for captivity the rest were set free. Please continue to call and send emails!
Make it simple. My suggestion is to make 2 call to your local Japanese Consulate or Embassy and the main Embassy in your country tomorrow or when your embassy opens.

Another good contact sheet is http://www.dolphinspirit.org/action.html although the email address to the Ambassador in D.C. does not work. But the rest are great addresses to use. It is time to mobilize for the dolphins we love so much!
