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.
