Theresa Concepcion, Asia head of the animal rights group Earth Island Institute, said it planned to appeal the latest ruling on Friday.

"This is a sad day for dolphins. The lifting of the (court injunction) means we can now trade in any species even if this would affect the survival of these species in the wild," she told AFP.
The dolphins had been captured in the waters of the Solomons, according to Concepcion, and were shipped away to be trained at a marine entertainment park in the Philippines between December 2008 and January 2011.

The first week in the Philippines was a resounding success, thanks to Earth Island Philippines Coordinator Teresa Concepción, who arranged a series of productive meetings with several canneries, two fishing associations, and the Tuna Canners' Association of the Philippines.

In canneries around Manila and General Santos City we were given detailed tours of the entire processing operation, from offloading the fish to labeling and packaging for shipment.We also reviewed each company's dolphin-safe policies and the previous three months' documentation of the catch.Each facility cooperated fully and provided letters of re-commitment to Earth Island's dolphin-safe standard.Again I explained that EII's lawsuit against the Commerce Department would not affect the companies in the Philippines - as long as they adhered to their dolphin-safe policy.
In General Santos City, we explored the fish-landing faci-lity that handles both local and commercial markets, and happened upon several shark species that had been netted.We photographed shark fins being dried for sale.

The thematic input on the topic Global Environmental Situation was led by Ms. Theresa Conception, an environmental activist and the Regional Director for Earth Island Institute, Manila, Philippines. This session gave an overall scenario of the global environment and a systematic analysis of the degradation of eco system, direct and indirect drivers of ecosystem changes, and the its relationship to the historical development of human societies. In her presentation, she narrated that the historical developments of human society have changed from primitive communal to capitalism/ Industrial societies. The utilization of forest and natural resources has gone beyond human need to human greed, which has paved the way for the growing consumerist culture by exploiting our environment for economic profit.
