Resumption of traditional drive hunting of dolphins 2013

The ‘drive hunting’ of dolphins has a long history in the Solomon Islands, specifically at the island of Malaita. In 2010, the most active village, Fanalei, suspended hunting in exchange for financial compensation from an international non-governmental organization but resumed hunting again in early 2013. This dataset hosts a report on a visit to Fanalei in March 2013 to document the species and number of dolphins killed in the renewed hunting.
