Operation Bloody Fjords Pilot whale defense campaign in the Faroe Islands and Denmark

Every year, up to 1,000 migrating pilot whales and other dolphins are hunted and brutally killed in the Danish protectorate of the Faroe Islands in a practice known as the ‘grindadráp’ or ‘grind.’

The cruel and bloody practice continues with the support of the Danish government, in conflict with Denmark's international legal obligations. Operation Bloody Fjords heralds a new direction for Sea Shepherd as the organization takes its battle against the grindadráp to the heart of the Faroese and Danish institutions that continue to promote this outdated practice.

The IssueA cruel and outdated slaughter in the name of 'tradition'

Every year, up to 1,000 migrating pilot whales and other dolphins are hunted and brutally killed in the Danish protectorate of the Faroe Islands. Sea Shepherd has led opposition to the grindadráp since the 1980s, saving the lives of hundreds of pilot whales and bringing global attention to the ongoing slaughters. A total of 28 Sea Shepherd volunteers have been arrested for interfering against the grindadráp, many of who were subsequently deported for the “crime” of defending pilot whales.
