Edmonds father, daughter participate in Seattle protest of Japan dolphin killings

Elora Malama West of Edmonds with Trevor and Momo Metcalf at Thursday's protest in Seattle.

Elora Malama West and her father Scott of Edmonds were among the participants in a protest in front of the Seattle Japanese Consulate Thursday, the start of Japan’s dolphin hunting season. Elora was joined by Trevor Metcalf, a young boy who is working to raise awareness about the plight of cetaceans in captivity, and his little sister Momo in delivering a petition of over 360,000 names from all over the world, along with cards, letters and drawings.

Elora, an Edmonds Heights K-12 student, and Scott West, a Sea Shepherd Conservation Society official, spent three months in Taiji, Japan (site of the award-winning documentary, “The Cove”) last year documenting the dolphin killings.

We have also included a video taken during the event that include remarks by the Wests.
