Quote of the Day: Hayden Panettiere on Dolphin, Whale Hunting


Now more than ever the world has to come together to make changes. Just because certain cultures have had long-standing traditions does not mean that in today's world they are acceptable any longer. The world and the environment are evolving and that means we must change our ways as human beings as well. ...

The dolphins and whales in our ocean are a part of a larger eco-system that prevents the killing off of other marine life. By destroying these animals and not allowing our future generations to enjoy their beauty, we are causing our own selves damage. ...

These animals are being brutally and unnecessarily slaughtered—and who are we to say to they have less of a right to exist than we do."

—Actress Hayden Panettiere, in a statement released Nov. 2, 2007
