Yoshi - "I set up Yoshi’s Project to provide a voice for people whose voices are ignored, for the animals who are treated miserably, and for the plants that are disappearing for human convenience. The purpose of this project is to be the voice for the voiceless. I am often left wondering what has happened to the world. It seems that there is something fundamentally wrong with society at the moment, although I am unable to place what it is. Whilst the problems in our world make it easy to become apathetic, I believe there is always hope. I want to find out how change can be possible and share this experience with all of you in the hope that together we can find a way to solve these problems. My first project was to document the suffering of vulnerable animals and human behavior driven by greed and evil satisfaction. I spent the season in Taiji, waking up every morning at 4 am to observe dolphin hunters capture these beautiful, intelligent beings. I witnessed the sad ending of these animals, and felt more determined that this has to be stopped. My journey in Taiji has not ended; there is still so much to be done here. I hope to be able to be the eyes and ears for everyone who cares about dolphins. There is still so much work to be done here and I hope you can join me on this journey to find an end.
