Earth I should live on

We live on the Earth where animals and humans coexist.

Animals are freed, live, love, and raise their children in nature. Humans watch them over lovingly.
Peaceful and serene Earth.

We believe that we can turn the Earth into such a place.

Earth in the present day

On the Earth in the present day, animals are exploited for food, clothing, entertainment, experiments, or hunting.
Every year, approximately 70 billion animals are bred and killed.
Each animal has its parents and may have children. They are sentient and capable of experiencing different emotions such as suffering or pleasure and feeling pain mentally and physically.

We must do something. I genuinely think so.

At the present day

I decided to stop exploiting animals and liberate them.

Many people did the same. How do we save and liberate animals? We need to think, discuss, and take action. I want to connect with people who care about animals and humans and take action together.

Saving and liberating animals requires each individual to act on the vulnerable’s behalf.

It also means saving and liberating humans.

Some day in the future

We will see the day of animal liberation.
It will be the most beautiful day.

I want to welcome the day with you all.


The mission of Animal Liberator

Liberating animals

Issues solved by liberating animals

Animal exploitation

The issue that Animal Liberator is tackling is animal exploitation.
Humans are exploiting animals massively.
For land animals alone, 70 billion animals are used and mistreated every year.
Yet, there is hardly anyone who sees the whole picture of animal exploitation.
The issue of animal exploitation can be divided into two categories:
Damage to animals and damage to humans.

Damage to animals

It has five aspects: food, clothing, entertainment, experiment, and wildlife.
With spread of the internet, the fact about animal exploitation becomes known rapidly.
Reference: “Earthlings” (a movie about animal exploitation)

Damage to humans

Breeding a vast number of animals artificially and killing them all result in damage to humans.
It humans has five aspects: health, society, ethics, science, and the environment.

Animal enterprises

Animal enterprises include almost all industries involving animals.
They are categorized into five: food, clothing, entertainment, experiments, and wildlife.
The market for animal enterprises is enormous.

Animal consumers

People who consume animals are animal consumers.
They consume animals in five categories: food, clothing, entertainment, experiments, and wildlife.
You may want to count how many animals you consume a day.
In your room alone or as household goods, you may realize you consume so many animals.

Animal exploitation triangle

Animal consumers seek to consume animals,
animal enterprises supply them,
and it leads to animal exploitation.
Under the animal exploitation triangle, a vast number of animals are used, abused, and killed.
As animal enterprises have been hiding the status of those animals, animal consumers could not notice the issue of animal exploitation.

Paradigm shift

Why must we liberate animals from humans?

At this very moment, animals are suffering at the nethermost hell literally.

Animals can think and feel.
However, many humans forgot or tried not to think about it.

Senses of animals

Animals refer to creatures belonging to the animal world.
Most animals make decisions, move independently, have a mouth, and are capable of feeling pains and emotions.

Love of animals

Humans regard animals as less-intelligent than humans.
However, animals have senses, being rich in emotions, and capable of feeling love and affection.

Animals pushed out of the ethical sphere

Being ethical means you do good and do not harm others, consider them properly, and do not treat them wrongly.
In other words, ethics is about controlling your self-interest, assuring others’ existence, and respect for freedom. Is it ethical the way we treat animals?
We must include animals in the ethical sphere.

Animal rights

Discrimination based on race is called racism,
and discrimination based on species is called speciesism.
Society has been developed in the way that the vulnerable are seeking their rights.
After WWII, fundamental human rights were granted internationally.
Now, it comes to animals, the ultimate vulnerable, who do not help themselves.

Action for animal liberation

Go vegan: action for one person can contribute to liberating animals

The development of the internet changed the situation.
The number of people who know the animals’ status and pull themselves from the animal exploitation triangle is exploding.
Being vegan is a way of living that embodies veganism. A goal of veganism is liberating animals.
Being vegan is a lifestyle that you can pull you out of the animal exploitation triangle. It is the most effective “action” one person can take alone.
For vegans, the best decision they have made in their life is to “go vegan.”

Animalism: humans liberate animals

Animalism is an idea proposing to build a social system including animals.
Humans have been building systems of law, politics, and economy for humans single-mindedly based on human supremacism.
What we are facing now is its consequence.
The global environment is being destructed, and flora and fauna are disappearing at an alarming rate while humans are confused in mind and tend to find pleasure in greed and things easy-to-get.
Political parties based on animalism as an ideological foundation have been formed in some European countries.

Animal liberation brings a positive impact on yourself, humanity, and the Earth

We set our goal firmly: liberating animals.
Animal Liberator undertakes the role of an accelerator of the movement in Japan.

Liberating humans

We liberate humans by liberating animals
In the process of liberating animals, we, humans will find solutions to our problems, further develop mental maturity, and eventually liberate humans.

It is us who created almost all social problems.
One of the most effective solutions to them is a departure from animal exploitation.

We are tied down to the structure and mind of rulers and subjects.
It might be natural for those people to think that humans dominate animals.
However, dominating the vulnerable is another form of slavery among humans.

To free yourself, you have to release others.
Releasing others brings you and others a real sense of joy.

Animals without a voice cannot seek help.
If animals could say one word, it would be:

We must liberate animals.



Action for ‘animal exploitation’

We work on the issue of animal exploitation as a whole by promoting animalism and veganism.

Action for ‘damage to animals’

We focus on the areas in the frames below.
Target areas are determined based on the impact on real damage to animals. Areas covering are:
1. From 2017 to 2020, focusing on zoos and aquariums
2. From 2020 to 2023, expanding to animal farming of cattle and horses
3. From 2023 to 2026, further expanding to wild animals

Five areas of business

1. Research and study

We conduct research for liberating animals and share the information among us whenever appropriate.

2. Database

We create a database required for liberating animals.

3. Raising awareness

We raise awareness about animal exploitation and advocate animalism and veganism through seminars, study groups, books, videos, websites, and social media.

4. Providing support (to be prepared)

To enhance animal liberation on the upward spiral, we provide support to like-minded individuals and organizations.

5. Building inclusive society of animals and humans

We research how we build an inclusive society with animals and propose adaptive approach.

Message from director

Humans are exploiting animals on a massive scale, and we are affected by their consequences overwhelmingly.
However, not many people know much about reality.

Japan is far behind in animal ethics, animal rights, and animal liberation in the world.
Japanese do not take animal liberation seriously, and laws are not prepared to deal with those issues.

Animals were born and are existing as precious lives on the Earth. But they are the ultimate vulnerable as humans hold a life or death authority over them.

Through liberating animals, we can expand the sphere of ethics and rights to protect and relieve the vulnerable.

We already noticed that issues caused by humans’ exploiting animals are responsible for problems such as violence, discrimination, or climate change, which we must attend to immediately.

I think Japan needs to raise the bar of animal liberation to catch up with advanced countries and pursue our agenda in the Japanese context. 

A society where humans do not exploit animals is equal to a society without human exploitation.

Together, we shall create our society where freedom and happiness are guaranteed for animals and humans.

Let’s liberate dolphins! ~ Survey, interview and book writing on dolphin hunting ~


I’m Mineto Meguro, Animal Liberator LIB (authorized NPO).
LIB is an organization that aims to release all animals used by humans.

I watched the movie “Earthlings” in 2015, and was very interested in activities to help animals.
In September 2017, I launched “Animal Liberator LIB” because I thought that it was necessary to conduct animal liberation activities organizationally.

I conducted two crowdfunding campaigns and surveyed almost all zoos and aquariums throughout Japan.
Happiness to animals! Go around Japan! Survey of zoos and aquariums [northern Japan ver.]” in 2017
Release animals! Go around Japan! Survey of zoos and aquariums [southern Japan]” in 2018

https://youtu.be/n99iSx3z1xcI accomplished severe surveys staying in a car for more than 9 months in both the projects, collected a huge number of videos, released the situation of many suffering animals.
The followings are a part of such animals:
Elephant Playlist
Fox Crying fox
Zoochosis Playlist
I received a lot of feedback from many people such as “my image of zoo and aquarium was changed” and “I changed my consumption behavior.”

As a compilation of these surveys, I published an e-book and it has been well received.
In this book, the actual condition of zoos and aquariums that many people do not know and are not informed of is described.
We would appreciate it if you would read the book.

Closure of zoos and aquariums

▶︎The reason why I launched this project

I launched this project with the thoughts that I want many people to know the actual condition of dolphins that perform shows cheerfully at aquariums and to release such dolphins.

All captured dolphins are used in the same process.
That is …
Faucet → Use → Outlet

1 Faucet: Where do aquarium’s dolphins come from?

Do people who enjoy dolphin shows know where the dolphins come from?
From dolphin hunting.
Dolphins are captured by dolphin hunting at Taiji Town in Wakayama Prefecture and taken to aquariums.
Their families and fellows are killed.
The fathers and mothers of dolphins that were born in aquariums are also ones captured by dolphin hunting.

Dolphin hunting has two purposes:
One is to eat dolphins.
The other is to perform dolphin shows at aquariums.
Dolphin trainers and aquarium staff participate in dolphin hunting to capture dolphins that will be sold to aquariums.

A group of dolphins is a family or fellows.
Some dolphins (grampus) in this video were taken to aquariums by dolphin trainers and the other dolphins were killed for eating.

2 Use: The suffering dolphins in aquariums

Dolphins remember what they were done by humans.
Do you know the word “abnormal behaviors”?
They are behaviors performed by animals that are confined in zoos and aquariums and mentally unbalanced.

Dolphins also perform abnormal behaviors.
For example, they are only floating on water, repeatedly expel fishes from their mouths and continue to do the same actions.
There are dolphins that seem to perform abnormal behaviors in the aquariums throughout Japan.

The dolphins in aquariums are addicted to medicine.
They have gastroenteritis because they eat frozen fishes, suffer from allergy and infection in the unnatural environment and are injected for artificial insemination (hormones of horse and human).
An aquarium uses 89 kinds in total of medicines and supplements to dolphins.

(Maria in an aquarium in Kyoto, whose wound in the mouth did not recover for years. She died in July 30, 2019.)

Dolphins have experienced miscarriage and stillbirth.When a baby dolphin is born in an aquarium, everyone celebrates the birth with delight.
However, do you know that many babies died in the meantime?
The probability of miscarriage and stillbirth is 80%.
The mother dolphins feel sadness in their heart.
They are inseminated artificially until pregnancy is successful. 

3 Outlet: Where do dolphins go?

Where do the dolphins that entertained us go?
Do you know the dolphin “Honey”?

She became well-known for being left alone in Inubosaki Marine Park Aquarium, Chiba Prefecture.
When LIB found Honey, the aquarium was still in business.
She was floating on the “green (dirty)” water.
We worked on all parties concerned to clean the water and rescue her.
For such process at that time, click here.
The story of dolphin “Honey” (Japanese)

And Honey died in March 29, 2020.
This video we took shows the actual condition of Honey on February 29 (one month before that).
It appears that the skin of her back peels away and the mouth and skin are heavily damaged.”

Honey was also captured by dolphin hunting at Taiji Town in Wakayama Prefecture, confined in the small pool for about 15 years, and died.

We heard that the dead dolphin was buried in the site of Inubosaki Marine Park Aquarium.
Honey could not return to the sea even after she died.

The following website is the process that we tried to rescue Honey.
We don’t forget Honey” (Japanese)

There are dolphins like “Honey” throughout Japan.
It means that they are over 500 dolphins confined in the aquariums across Japan even at this very moment.
And as long as dolphin hunting at Taiji Town continues, one “Honey” after another is captured and used until they die.

” Faucet → Use → Outlet” The most important thing is to turn off the “faucet.”

If you really desire to release animals, you will come to the answer “turn off the faucet.”

Use: As the dolphins that are used now are someone’s property, we cannot rescue them.
Outlet: We also cannot do nothing for dead dolphins.

Faucet: prevent dolphins from becoming victims.
This is the most effective and quickest way.
Dolphins that will be captured in the future can be released by turning off the faucet.

The faucet is dolphin hunting.

Therefore, we will focus on dolphin hunting to attract the attention of people in this project.

Tell the truth to people and never create a new “Honey.”
In order to do so, we will perform this project.

▶︎The details of project

Dolphin hunting is performed at Taiji Town in Wakayama Prefecture, mainly from September 1 to the end of February. (The hunting period is much longer but these 6 months are its peak.)

This project is performed based on the three activities.

1 Survey on dolphin hunting and interview with the concerned parties
2 Remote broadcast of dolphin hunting
3 Write and publish a book on dolphin hunting

1. Survey on dolphin hunting and interview with the concerned parti

During the peak of dolphin hunting period (from September 1, 2020 to the end of February, 2021), I will conduct survey the dolphin hunting and interview with the concerned parties to collect the information 5 times in total and for more than 50 days
I will establish the evidence that can persuade the society to realize the release of dolphins in the future.”

2. Live broadcast of dolphin hunting

I perform live broadcast via social media on the day of dolphin hunting to deliver what happens on the spot to Japan and the world.
*No dolphin hunting is conducted on a heavy-weather day.
The live broadcast was performed via social media
for 12 days in total during the hunting period from 2018 to 2019, and
for 14 days in total during the hunting period from 2019 to 2020.
I actually felt that more people know the actual condition of dolphin hunting thanks to this live broadcast.
I will perform much more live broadcasts to increase people who know the actual condition of dolphin hunting.”

3. Write and publish a book on dolphin hunting

I will write the book at the same time as survey, interview and live broadcast.
(The image of book, it will be published in the digital version.)

This book is intended to make suggestion to the evidence why dolphins should be released and the future.

In Japan, there is no book written in a critical position regarding dolphin hunting.
I write a book that may be an important trigger in the history of dolphin release in Japan based on our collected information, materials and experiences.
After the hunting period finishes, I will refine the sentences many times and publish it by the autumn 2021.

▶︎The prospect and vision of project

Japan have captured, sold and killed the largest number of dolphins in the world.
The world’s largest base to supply dolphins to aquariums is Taiji Town in Wakayama Prefecture.
People all over the world already know that Japan is very cruel to dolphins.
However, many Japanese people believe that they are kind to dolphins.
We would like to change Japan to be a country that is kind to dolphins.

Wild dolphins eat, play and sleep all day.

Dolphins travel a long distance with their families, surf on waves, fall in love, have children and raise them in a family.

We got permission to put the video on this website from Mr. Richard Melvill (Photographer / Videographer).
Register YouTube Channel

We would like to protect such dolphins and release them.

It is a human that injures and confines dolphins, and it is also a human that protects dolphins naturally.

This project will increase people who know the dolphin hunting in Japan and the actual condition of aquariums.
We conduct activities so that Japanese people may become kind to dolphins, more people may be kind to animals all over the world and this project may become one important step to release all animals someday.

Let’s liberate dolphins together.

Your support will be appreciated.

Red List- Property List Created by Thieves|LIB Animal Liberator.net

There are many red lists

When you hear the Red List, you might think IUCN’s Red List.
But have you been deceived?

The basis for dolphin fishing and whaling is a red list created by the Fisheries Agency of Japan.

In Japan,
Red list of land animals : Ministry of the Environment
Red List of Underwater Animals : Fisheries Agency

Let’s compare the IUCN and the JFA Red List.

IUCN Red List (only for whales)

CR 3 species
EN 10
VU 7
NT 6
LC 34
DD 29

Fisheries Agency Red List (all marine life)

CR 0 species
EN 0
VU 0
NT 0
(LC 0)
DD 1

Can the JFA Red List be Reliable?

The IUCN Red List contains all 89 types of whales.
Among them, the sei whale is an endangered species EN.
There is a higher risk of extinction than pandas and coelacanths.

The IUCN Red List was created to protect the earth.
The Fisheries Agency Red List was created to save their profits and position.
It’s like having a thief create an inventory of our property.

We will tell you the flow of dolphin hunting in Taiji town.

Notojima Aquarium, Confinement of Whale Sharks, Micro Plastics, Old Dolphins in Japan|LIB

《Whale Shark》

Whale shark is the largest fish on earth.
Japanese aquariums are eager to confine whale sharks.
4 lFacilities in Japan
Notojima Aquarium (Ishikawa Prefecture)
Kaiyukan (Osaka)
Kagoshima Aquarium (Kagoshima Prefecture)
Churaumi Aquarium (Okinawa)
All are West Japan.
Kaiyukan released the bycatched whale shark. For research purposes, I think it has a good attitude.


Did you know that old dolphins are kept in tanks in aquariums all over Japan?
Dolphins that can no longer show are quietly confined in a water tank that is difficult to see.
Many dolphins behave abnormally.
This dolphin hardly moved towards the wall.

As I often see, some customers give instructions to the dolphins.
Many dolphins suffer because “dolphins lovers” enjoy the dolphin show.
I think there is an “audience responsibility”.

A commentary is attached to the photo.
There is also a problem with melamine sponge and micro plastic that clean the aquarium.
