25th Anniversary of Earth Island’s Dolphin Safe Tuna Program
Established in 1990 by Earth Island’s International Marine Mammal Project (IMMP), the Dolphin Safe International Monitoring Program checks to ensure that tuna is caught without harm to dolphins. Before 1990, dolphin deaths in tuna nets were running about 80,000 to 100,000 annually. These numbers have been reduced by 99% thanks to IMMP’s efforts.
Earth Island monitors 515 tuna companies in 73 countries to protect dolphins.We were the first and so far most successful food labeling program in the world for environmental protection.
