A protester wearing a dolphin mascot outfit sits next to colleagues wearing t-shirts printed with an anti-dolphin slaugther message during a demonstration in front of the Japanese embassy in Manila on August 31, 2012, ahead of the annual dolphin slaughter in Taiji, Japan. Every year, fishermen in Taiji herd about 2,000 dolphins into a shallow bay, select several dozen for sale to aquariums and marine parks and harpoon the rest for meat. Taiji, located on the western Japanese peninsula of Kii, has drawn worldwide attention after a US documentary film, 'The Cove', which described the slaughter of dolphins there, won an Oscar for best documentary this year.
